ASME B16 38 2007 – Large Metallic Valves for Gas Distn: Mnl Oprd,NPS 2 1/2 (DN 65) to NPS 12 (DN 300), 125 psig (8.6 bar) Maximum

ANSI ASME B16 38 2007
This ASME B16 38 2007 Standard covers requirements for manually operated metallic valves in nominal sizes 2 1/2 (DN 65) through 12 (DN 300) having the inlet and outlet on a common centerline.
These valves are intended for controlling the flow of gas from open to fully closed positions, for use in distribution and service lines where the maximum gage pressure does not exceed 125 psig (8.6 bar). Valve seats, seals, and stem packing may be nonmetallic.
This ASME B16 38 2007 Standard sets forth the minimum capabilities, characteristics, and properties that a newly manufactured metallic valve must possess in order to be considered suitable for use in the piping systems indicated above, carrying natural gas, manufactured gas [includes synthetic natural gas (SNG)], and liquefied petroleum gases (distributed as a vapor, with or without the admixture of air) or mixtures thereof
