Description / Abstract:

This standard recommends voluntary procedures for determining the magnitude of the water hammer effect caused by a valve and for classifying a valve according to the magnitude of the water hammer effect produced. This standard pertains specifically to electrically operated valves used in water systems using American National Schedule 40 steel piping up to 3-inch.

PURPOSE

To recommend standardized apparatus, instrumentation, and test procedures for measuring the magnitude of the water hammer effect caused by an electrically operated valve.

To recommend a method for classifying a valve according to the magnitude of the water hammer effect it produces.

To provide a meaningful basis for comparing, selecting, and specifying valves for use in water systems
