API 641 VS ISO 15848-1 Fugitive Emission Test

API 641 VS ISO 15848-1 Fugitive Emission Test

API 641 VS ISO 15848-1 Fugitive Emission Test

(OP)

Wanted to find out the difference between API 641 and ISO 15848-1 for fugitive emission test on Valves? Thanks

(OP)
For quarter turn ball Valve. Forgot to mention that earlier.

RE: API 641 VS ISO 15848-1 Fugitive Emission Test

API 641 is Methane testing only

ISO 15848-1 is Helium or Methane. Purchaser is to specify.

API 641 temperature during test is measured at the packing, so valve experiences full temperature during test.

ISO 15848-1 test temperature is at the body. Packing area can be above the insulation and at a lower temperature. So the thermal cycle range is not as severe with ISO.

Test pressures are different between the standards depending upon the test gas and test temperature.

API 641 requires additional materials tests per API 622 for graphitic packing.

This covers the major differences.

eBook - Mastering Tolerances for Machined Parts
When making CNC machined parts, mastering tolerances can be challenging. Are general tolerances good enough? When does it make sense to call out for tighter tolerances? Do you need a better understanding of fits, datums, or GD&T? Learn about these topics and more in Xometry's new e-book. Download Now
eBook – How to Choose the Correct Corrosion Testing Method
When designing a metal component, engineers have to consider how susceptible certain alloys are to corrosion in the final product’s operating environment. In a recent study by NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers), it was estimated that the direct and indirect costs of corrosion in the United States is approximately 6.2% of the GDP. In 2016, that cost exceeded $1 trillion dollars for the first time. Download Now
