Allow time for leakage flow to stabilize and use suitable measuring device. Hi Muktiadi, The question is not specific to a particular valve but to many such valves.

fcci This is a broad topic with no real precise answer. The International Society of Automation www. ISA was and is forged and founded from true honesty and integrity that you will not find in to many other professions.

They are not an operating qualification test for an actuated valve or a basis for predicting seat leakage rates at operating conditions. Fugitive emissions can both be detrimental to the environment and a potential safety hazard. Allow time for leakage flow to stabilize and use suitable measuring device.

Leakage classes II through IV for metal-seated valves and Class VI for resilient-seated valves are based on low-pressure testing at differential pressures equal to or less than 60 pounds per square inch, gauge.

How can they help in valve leakage testing decision making?? Other measuring devices may be constructed and the number of 70. per minute may differ from those shown as long as they correctly indicate the flow in milliliters per minute. Industrial valves – Pressure testing of metallic valvesis the establishment of basic requirements and practices for pressure testing valves of various configurations that are used in general purpose, power generation, petroleum, and petrochemical or allied industry applications.

API has the same acceptance leakage rates for both the low pressure and high pressure closure tests.

Seat leakage standard revised

Even though no emergency ever occurred valve never fck self-operatedhowever on service and after the warranty years is due there are still risk of wear rci erosion on the internals which leads to lower Seat tightness Class.


Bubbles per minute as tabulated are a suggested alternative based on a suitable calibrated measuring device, in this case a 0. This can be converted so you will gate Seating force. API is not specific to control valves and there is no mention of class-wise segregation of valves and the corresponding allowable leakage rates. Pressure applied to valve inlet after filling entire body cavity and connected piping with water and stroking valve plug closed.

We have a lot of control valves that need to be tested during Shutdown for leak tests. Indevelopers issued a leakage standard for regulators, FCI Allow time for leakage flow to stabilize. The tube end shall be cut square and smooth with no chamfers or burrs. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their 700.2. About a week ago from Gemco Valve’s Twitter.

Small difference in the seating force value which driven by the actuator setting have a big difference on seat leakage criteria.

FCI 70.2 PDF

For gas test, 0 bubble means less then 1 bubble per minimum specified test duration. Other measuring devices may be constructed and the number of bubbles per minute may differ from those shown as long as they correctly indicate ffci flow in milliliters per minute.

Valve is not fully closed. What leakage rate threshold is acceptable to avoid catastrophic until the other ignition problem fire, etc.

HiThanks, Agree with you. Register now while it’s still free! Although the FCI standard is not applicable to valves with Cv values of less than 0. Conversely, these leakage criteria are becoming progressively more stringent for low-flow trims.

This can be due to various reasons, including; Valve seat is prevented from closing fully due to dirt, rust, or line debris Insufficient actuator travel The seat is damaged, e. Regards, MR Greenfield and Brownfield have one thing in common; Valve s is deemed to “run to fail” earlier shall compared to other equipments.


None of the classes are TSO. Does not each of the testing standards state the test pressures?

All valves built to the various API standards are required to meet API leakage criteria prior to shipment from the manufacturer or supplier. ISA announces recipients of author awards. The purpose of ISO standard This would be an alternate to the water test at full operating pressure.

Digital Transformation may 07.2 defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts.

Also, i need an answer to the question as in my original post; that if i have dci Class-V valve defined as control valve in datasheet but only performing the funtion of a shut-off valve EIV ; do i need to carry out it’s seat leakage test based on FCI or simply follow API? The API standard Are fcl an Engineering professional? Select One Alexandria Egypt Nigeria.

Valve Seat Leakages – FCI Class – Valve engineering – Eng-Tips

This would be an alternate to the water test at full operating pressure. Account has been taken of the valve testing requirement needs of EN and API with requirements referenced for PN designated valves for the former and Class designated valves for the fic.

Also, at the same time i have valves wiht classes defined e. Gasket between valve-body and valve-bonnet is damaged Stem Pakking is worn, loose or damaged Both of them can have several causes. Pressure applied to valve inlet with outlet open to atmosphere or connected to a low head loss measuring device full normal 700.2 thrust provided by actuator.

This class establishes the maximum permissible leakage generally associated with Class II 4.
