DIS 15848-1 & -2 for Fugitive Emissions testing of Valves

DIS 15848-1 & -2 for Fugitive Emissions testing of Valves

DIS 15848-1 & -2 for Fugitive Emissions testing of Valves

Dear All,
        ISO 15848-1 and ISO 15848-2 have been recently promoted from the "Committee Draft" (CD) to the "Draft International Standard" (DIS) status and, although still under development and at an inquiry stage ("40.60 - Voting summary dispatched"), they are now available for public purchase (with a price of 64 CHF each).

    See also Thread408-100721 and the relevant ISO web-pages:

        Has anybody tried to set up a test according to these documents already? Or even read them? (Valve Purchasers' specifications start mentioning them as a reference...)
        As far as I remember, at the time of Committee Drafts, type testing (described in Part -1) was very severe and difficult to put into industrial practice of valves manufacturing, while production test (described in Part -2) was very simple: is that still the same?

        And finally, do you think it is worth buying the standard drafts? Will this long work (started in 1997, at least) reach a world-wide accepted result?

Many thanks in advance,               'NGL
