Standard Details


Scope:
General

This Standard applies to new valve construction and covers quarter turn manually operated metallic valves in sizes NPS 41⁄4 and tubing sizes 11⁄4 O.D. These valves are intended for indoor installation as gas shutoff valves when installed in aboveground fuel gas piping downstream of the gas meter outlet and upstream of the inlet connection to a gas appliance. The valves covered by this Standard are intended for service at temperatures between 32°F (0°C) and 125°F (52°C) at pressure ratings not to exceed 5 psi (0.34 bar). When so designated by the manufacturer, these valves may be installed for service outdoors and/or at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) and/ or above 125°F (52°C).

Applicability

This Standard sets requirements, including qualification requirements, for metallic gas valves for use in gas piping systems. Details of design, materials, and testing in addition to those stated in this Standard that are necessary to meet the qualification and production testing requirements of this Standard remain the responsibility of the manufacturer. A valve used under a code jurisdiction or governmental regulation is subject to any limitation of such code regulations.

Description :

General

This Standard applies to new valve construction and covers quarter turn manually operated metallic valves in sizes NPS 4¼ and tubing sizes 1¼ O.D. These valves are intended for indoor installation as gas shutoff valves when installed in aboveground fuel gas piping down-stream of the gas meter outlet and upstream of the inlet connection to a gas appliance. The valves covered by this Standard are intended for service at temperatures between 32°F (0°C) and 125°F (52°C) at pressure ratings not to exceed 5 psi (0.34 bar). When so designated by the manufacturer, these valves may be installed for service outdoors and/or at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) and/or above 125°F (52°C).

Applicability

This Standard sets requirements, including qualification requirements, for metallic gas valves for use in gas piping systems. Details of design, materials, and testing in addition to those stated in this Standard that are necessary to meet the qualification and production testing requirements of this Standard remain the responsibility of the manufacturer. A valve used under a code jurisdiction or governmental regulation is subject to any limitation of such code regulations.

Limitations

This Standard does not apply to manually operated gas valves that are an integral part of a gas appliance. Manually operated gas valves intended for use in a particular appliance are covered in the American National Standard/Canadian Gas Association Standard for Manually Operated Gas Valves for Appliances, Appliance Connector Valves, and Hose End Valves, ANSI Z21.15/CGA 9.1.

Convention

For the purpose of determining conformance with this Standard, the convention for fixing significant digits where limits, maximum and minimum values, are specified by "rounding off" as defined in ASTM Practice E 29. This requires that an observed or calculated value shall be rounded off to the nearest unit in the last right-hand digit used for expressing the limit. Decimal values and tolerances do not imply a particular method of measurement.

Quality Systems

Requirements relating to the product manufacturer's Quality System Programs are described in Nonmandatory Annex A.

Units

The values stated in either inch units or metric units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

All pressures, unless otherwise specified, are gauge pressures.

Description :

General

This Standard applies to new valve construction and covers quarter turn manually operated metallic valves in sizes NPS ½-2 which are intended for indoor installation as gas shutoff valves when installed in indoor gas piping between a gas meter outlet and the inlet connection to a gas appliance. The valves covered by this Standard are limited to application temperatures between 32°F and 125°F at pressures not to exceed 2 psig.

Applicability

This Standard sets requirements, including qualification requirements, for metallic gas valves for use in an indoor gas piping system. Details of design, materials, and testing in addition to those stated in this Standard that are necessary to meet the qualification and production testing requirements of this Standard remain the responsibility of the manufacturer. A valve used under a code jurisdiction or governmental regulation is subject to any limitation of such code or regulations.

Limitations

This Standard does not apply to manually operated gas valves which are an integral part of a gas appliance. Manually operated gas valves intended for application to a particular appliance are covered in the American National Standard for Manually Operated Gas Valves for Appliances, Appliance Connector Valves, and Hose End Valves, ANSI Z21.15.
