API 600: Steel Gate Valves-Flanged and Butt-welding Ends, Bolted Bonnets

Publish Time: Author: Site Editor Visit: 87

API 600 standard specifies the requirements for a heavy-duty series of bolted bonnet steel gate valves for petroleum refinery and related applications where corrosion, erosion, and other service conditions would indicate a need for full port openings, heavy wall sections, and large stem diameters.

API 600 standard sets forth the requirements for the following gate valve features:

— bolted bonnet;

— outside screw and yoke;

— rising stems;

— non-rising handwheels;

— single or double gate;

— wedge or parallel seating;

— metallic seating surfaces;

— flanged or butt-welding ends.

It covers valves of the nominal pipe sizes DN:

— 25, 32, 40, 50, 65, 80, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450, 500, 600, 650, 700, 750, 800, 850, 900, 950, 1000, 1050;

corresponding to nominal pipe sizes NPS:

— 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42;

and applies to pressure class designations:

— 150, 300, 600, 900, 1500, 2500.

This edition of API 600 states values in both metric and U.S. Customary units of measurement. These systems of units are to be regarded separately. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems constitutes nonconformance with this standard.
