1.1.1 This standard covers steel, nickel base and other alloy plug valves with ßanged or butt-welding ends and ductile iron plug valves with ßanged ends in sizes NPS 1 / 2 through NPS 24 and threaded or socket-welding ends for sizes NPS 1 / 2 through NPS 2. Valve bodies conforming to ASME B16.34 may have one ßange and one butt-welding end. 1.1.2 This standard covers additional requirements for plug valves that are otherwise in full conformance to the require- ments of ASME B16.34 for Standard Class 150 through 2500 or ASME B16.42 for Class 150 and 300. 1.1.3 This standard covers both lubricated and nonlubricated valves that have two-way coaxial ports; three-way and four- way plug valves are not discussed in this standard. This stan- dard includes requirements for valves Þtted with internal body, plug, or port linings or applied hard facings on the body, body ports, plug, or plug port. The extent of linings and the materials of which they are made are not covered in this standard. 1.1.4 Plug valves covered in this standard belong to one of four general design groups that in many cases have different face-to-face and end-to-end dimensions. Some types of plug valves are not made to all patterns. The four groups are described in through The short-pattern design is found only in Class 150 and 300 where ßanged plug valves match the face-to-face dimensions of steel-ßanged gate valves in NPS 1 1 Ú 2 through NPS 12. The regular pattern design has a plug port area that is greater than the venturi pattern. Valves of the venturi pattern are designed for mini- mum pressure loss consistent with the reduced port area used in this type of valve. Venturi valves have a conÞguration of body and plug ports that approximates a venturi throat.
2.1 GENERAL Valves manufactured in accordance with this standard shall meet the requirements of ASME B16.34 for Standard Class, ASME B16.42 where appropriate, the requirements of API Std 607 when Þre testing is speciÞed, and any additional requirements as speciÞed in this standard. 2.2 BODY 2.2.1 The minimum thickness of the body wall is depen- dent upon the body material speciÞed and shall be in accor- dance with the following:2.2.2 Face-to-face dimensions for raised-face and ring-joint ßanged-end valves and end-to-end dimensions for butt-weld- ing-end valves shall conform to ASME B16.10 or Table 3 as applicable. 2.2.3 End ßanges of steel valves shall be integrally cast or forged with the body; however, ßanges may be attached by full-penetration butt welding if this method is speciÞed in the purchase order. End ßanges attached by welding shall be cast or forged butt-welding ends. Welds shall conform to ASME B31.3, as shall qualiÞcations for the welding procedure and the welder or welding operator. The Þnished weld thickness shall not be less than the minimum body-wall thickness (see 2.2.1). No welding or brazing shall be permitted on ductile iron. 2.2.4 The dimensions and Þnish of steel end ßanges shall be as speciÞed in ASME B16.5 for the type of facing speci- Þed in the purchase order. Flat-face ßanges not covered by a lining material shall be Þnished as speciÞed in ASME B16.5 for raised-face ßanges. 2.2.5 The dimensions and Þnish of ductile iron-end ßanges shall be as speciÞed in ASME B16.42 for the type of facing speciÞed in the purchase order. 2.2.6 Socket-welding end preparation shall conform to ASME B16.11. The bottom of the socket shall be square and ßat with the thickness in accordance with Table 4 of ASME B16.34. 2.2.7 Steel butt-welding ends shall conform to ASME B16.25 for the bore speciÞed, for use without backing rings.
