ITIS| Fugitive Emission Testing with Robot

Testing a DN50, PN16 ball valve in accordance with API641 with methane as test gas.

Test temperatures: Room Temperature & 200°C.

For this test our new proto type robot was used to execute the sniffing test.

The API 641 standard specifies the requirements and acceptance criteria for fugitive emission type testing of quarter-turn valves. The type testing requirements contained herein are based on elements of EPA Method 21.

Valves larger than NPS 24 and valves greater than ASME B16.34 class 1500 are outside the scope of this standard. Valves with a pressure rating at ambient temperature less than 6.89 barg (100 psig) are outside the scope of this standard.
