THE SELECTION AND TESTING OF VALVES FOR LNG APPLICATIONS
|D O W N L O A D|
The present document was developed and officially released by SIGTTO in order to offer readers, including the operators and designers of the vessels engages in marine transportation of the liquid natural gases, the professional guidelines on the general requirements that are applicable. Note that we also have the similar publication dealing with selection of the valves for the LPG, or liquid petroleum gas, application.
The valves used in such services will be designed for the operating temperature range from 80 to minus 180 degrees Celsius. The content of the document will be of particular use for the storage of the LNG products and their transportation; however, it will be equally useful to the representatives of the other industries involving LNG. There are specific requirements applying to the design of the valves to make sure that they will work safely and efficiently in the cryogenic systems.
The authors of the publication intended to explain the essentials of the design and subsequent testing of the valves for cryogenic applications, with the technical requirements paid due attention. All of the major and commonly referred standards and technical codes have been listed at the end of the document. Though very compact, the booklet will still be of great assistance.
