prEN 14141 “Valves for natural gas transportation in pipelines - Performance requirements and tests”

This preliminary standard was submitted to the CEN enquiry closed on 11 January 2012.

The comments received by CEN/TC 69/WG 9 were discussed and considered and prEN 14141 was modified according to the accepted comments and sent to CEN CCMC for submission to Formal Vote.

This is a proposal for a European performance standard of valves for use in pipelines for transportation of natural gas in accordance with EN 1594. The significant properties of valves designed for a special application are defined by performance requirements accompanied by the description of tests to be carried out:
• by the manufacturer on the product during the manufacture; and
• by an independent accepted body on test samples for certification purposes;

to give proof that the valve meets the performance requirements of this European Standard.

A type test is included in this European Standard to satisfy the requirements of EN 1594.

When published this document will supersede EN 14141:2003.
