1. GENERAL PRACTICE FOR VALVES

1.1 Valves should generally be line size except that pump discharge valves (check
and block) shall be the same size as the pump discharge.

1.2 Valves With inside screw stems shall not be used for corrosive service, or where
solid deposits may develop.

1.3 Where actuated valves are installed the motor operators shall be sized for a
differential pressure across the valve of maximum line working pressure plus
10% e.g. (max. static head + pump shut-in head, if applicable) x 1.10. A thermal
relief valve must be installed on the line to ensure that direct sun heating does not
cause the design differential pressure in the line to be exceeded.

1.4 Valves in pipework which has to be post weld heat treated should be removed
from the system during the heat treatment.

1.5 Valves for flare line isolation and slurries shall have flushing connections unless
otherwise specified. Flare line isolation valves shall also incorporate valve
position indicators.

1.6 On fouling duty the minimum valve size should be 50 mm (2') nominal size.

1.7 Double valving should be used for:

1.7.1 Sample connection, vents and drains in systems containing liquefied


petroleum gas or similar liquids.

1.7.2 Vents and drains in normal operation service PN 150 (class 900) and
higher.

1.7.3 Lines where isolation is required for operational reasons only when the
use of spades is not suitable

6.4.3 Swing type check valves are suitable for horizontal and vertical upwards
flows.

6.4.4 A full opening swing check valve is suitable for most non pulsating
application.

6.4.5 Swing check valve can be used in vertical pipe runs (with flow in the
upward direction) only if a stop is included to prevent the clapper from
opening past top-dead centre.

6.4.6 Swing check valve is not recommended for pulsating flow or low flow
velocities.

6.4.7 Lift plug check valves should only be used in small, high pressure lines
handling clean fluids, it can be used for horizontal or vertical lines, but the
two are not interchangeable.

6.4.8 Piston type check valves are suitable for horizontal mounting only. They
shall be specified where frequent changes of direction of flow occurs.

6.4.9 Piston check valves are recommended for pulsating flow, such as
reciprocating compressor or pump discharge line.

6.4.10 Ball check valves are preferable in 50 mm (2") or smaller for clean service
that have frequent flow reversals.
