Hot Spot Proposed revision of BS 7350: 1990: Specification for Double regulating globe valves and flow measurement devices for heating and chilled water systems

What is it?

Following completion of the 5 year review process, BSI are proposing to revise BS7350:1990 Specification for Double regulating globe valves and flow measurement devices for heating and chilled water systems.

It is proposed that the standard will be revised to bring it up to date with the need for changes identified in several areas including the scope, nominal pressure ranges and pressure tapping design details.

Further details of the proposal issued by BSI on behalf of PSE18/2 can be found by visiting http://standardsdevelopment.bsigroup.com/projects/9022-07410. If members have a BSI standards development log on they can submit any comments on this work directly to BSI from the on line document. Alternatively, please contact the BVAA secretariat and we will be happy to discuss and submit any agreed comments on your behalf if received no later than the 25th August 2022.

Why is it Important?

Several BVAA members manufacture or supply double regulating valves and flow measurement devices into the HVAC market. BS7350 remains the only product application standard covering these valves as there is no equivalent international standard. The proposal to revise the standard is an opportunity to ensure that it continues to meet the needs of current products and the end users in this market as well as including up to date references to current national and international standards.

In order to ensure that the proposed new revision fully meets these goals it is important that interested parties make any comments to BSI concerning the scope and content of the standard at this point.

Supersedes

This proposal will supersede BS 7350:1990 if it is adopted.
