Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www.iso.org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www.iso.org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to

the World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT), see

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 153, Valves, in collaboration with the

European Committee for Standardization (CEN) Technical Committee CEN/TC 69, Industrial valves, in

accordance with the Agreement on technical cooperation between ISO and CEN (Vienna Agreement).

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition (ISO 28921-1:2013), which has been technically

revised.
The main changes are as follows:

— extension of the scope to include sizes DN 950 to 1 800, NPS 38 to 72, and pressure designations

PN 400 and Class 2 500;
— addition of a new terminological entry for shell (3.14);
— addition of a new terminological entry for drip plate (3.15);
— exclusion of safety valves and control valves;
— in 5.2, addition of type test requirement in accordance with ISO 28921-2;

— update of Annex A giving the test procedure for production testing of valves at low temperature.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

EN 12516-1 or EN 12516-4 for Class-designated valves and EN 12516-1 or EN 12516-2 or EN 12516-4

for PN designated valves. The pressure rating of the valve at or below service temperatures –50 °C shall

not exceed the cold working pressure for the applicable valve body material and appropriate Class or

PN designation.
4.2.3 Body and bonnet extension

4.2.3.1 The length of the extension shall be sufficient to maintain the stem packing at a temperature

high enough to permit operation within the temperature range of the packing material.

For globe valves, bonnet extension is shown up to DN 300 – NPS 12 only.

4.2.3.3 In case of a bonnet extension made of material having lower pressure/temperature rating

than the body, then the extension thickness shall be increased proportionally to meet the pressure/

temperature rating of the body at all applicable temperatures. The minimum wall thickness shall be in

accordance with ASME B16.34 for Class-designated valves or EN 12516 for PN designated valves.

4.2.3.4 Bonnet extension tube thickness shall take into account pressure stresses as well as operating

torque, stem thrust and bending stresses induced by operating devices, such as handles, gears or

actuators.

4.2.3.5 Stem to extended bonnet clearance should be minimized to reduce convective heat loss except

there shall be sufficient clearance to avoid interference during operation.

4.2.3.6 Valves specified to be in gas service shall be capable of operation with the extended bonnet in

any position, unless otherwise limited by the manufacturer.

4.2.3.7 Valves specified to be in liquid service, other than cold box applications, shall be capable of

operation with the extended bonnet at or above 45° above the horizontal position (see Figure 2).

4.2.3.8 Valves specified to be in cold box applications, equipped with extended bonnet, for applications

with liquids, shall be capable of operating with the stem oriented 15° to 90° above the horizontal plane

(see Figure 3).

4.2.3.9 A stem guide shall be applied at the lower end of the extended bonnet or topside of the

valve body.

Where necessary, an additional guide may be provided to the upper end of the extension. It shall be

located below the packing and designed so as not to interfere or otherwise damage the stem or the

packing during normal valve operation.
The guide can be separate or integral with the bonnet extension.

4.2.3.10 If specified on the purchase order, the extension shall be provided with an insulation collar/

drip plate. The collar/drip plate may be welded to the bonnet extension or of the clamp-on design. The

clamp-on type shall have the bolting on the upper side to enable easy adjustment. Any gap between the

bonnet and the collar/drip plate shall be sealed to avoid condensation entering into the insulated area.

penetration welding except for valves using pipe extension DN 50 (NPS 2) or smaller, where partial

penetration V-groove welding, fillet type welding or full-strength threaded joint with seal weld may be

used. Wh
