(Testing) Bronze valve DN80 upwards

(Testing) Bronze valve DN80 upwards

Good morning sir,
I need to ask you a question regarding the test of bronze bolted bonnet valves above 3 inches.(Flanged ANSI 150/ANSI 300 and S.200/s.300 npt)
For valves up to DN80 i would obviously use (for test pressures) the msssp80 standard which, as per the standard, only concerns valves up to dn80.
For valves from dn80 upwards which standard should I refer to?

I have searched for hours and hours on internet and in the standards in my hands but I have not found direct references that would make me understand which standard I could use for pressure test.
I thank you in advance.

Best regards

RE: (Testing) Bronze valve DN80 upwards

Well what standard or specification are you making them to??

What is their design pressure?
Usually shell pressure test is 1.5 x design pressure.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

RE: (Testing) Bronze valve DN80 upwards

Since you mention Class 150, 300, maybe the valve standard that you could reference for testing is ASME B16.24?
