This standard established minimum requirements for pilot-operated control valves of globe, angle, and wye body styles with various end connections in sizes from 1-1/2 in. through 60 in. (37.5 mm through 1,500 mm) in diameter, with water having a pH range from 6 to 9 and a temperature range from 40 degrees to 125 degrees F (4.4 degrees to 52 degrees C).
The standard covers piston- and diaphragm-type valves suitable for a maximum steady-state fluid working pressure of 300 psig (2,070 kPa), a maximum steady-state differential pressure of 300 psig (2,070 kPa), and a maximum line velocity of 15 ft/sec (4.6 m/sec).
The purpose of this standard is to define the minimum requirements for pilot-operated control valves, including sizing considerations, design verification, testing, delivery, handling, and storage.
