This standard covers design, materials, face-to-face dimensions; pressure-temperature ratings; and examination, inspection, and test requirements for gray iron, ductile iron, bronze, steel, nickel-base alloy, or special alloy butterfly valves that provide tight shutoff in the closed position and are suitable for flow regulation. Two categories of butterfly valves are included:

a. Category A: Manufacturer's rated cold working pressure (CWP) butterfly valves, usually with a concentric disc and seat configuration. Sizes covered are NPS 2 to NPS 48 for valves having ASME Class 125 or Class 150 flange bolting patterns.

b. Category B: Pressure-temperature rated butterfly valves that have an offset seat and either an eccentric or a concentric disc configuration. These valves may have a seat rating less than the body rating. For lug and wafer, Class 150, 300, and 600, sizes covered are NPS 3 to NPS 24. For double flanged long pattern, Class 150, 300, and 600, sizes covered are NPS 3 to NPS 36. For double flanged short pattern, Class 150 and 300, sizes covered are NPS 3 to NPS 48. For double flanged short pattern, Class 600, sizes covered are NPS 3 to NPS 24.

Valve configurations include double flanged, lug- and wafer-types with facings that permit installation between ASME and MSS flanges that conform to the standards and specifications listed in Section 2.
