Hot Spot Publication of EN 15714-6 Hydraulic Linear Actuators Published

What is it?

BS EN 15714-6-2022 Hydraulic Linear Actuators for Industrial Valves has now been published by BSI and is available to purchase.

This document specifies basic requirements for piston type hydraulic linear actuators for industrial valves, covering both double and single acting types used for on-off and modulating control duties. It contains guidelines for design, qualification, corrosion protection, control and testing but it does not apply to hydraulic actuators which are integral parts of control valves.

Why is it Important?

This new standard is the 6th part of the EN 15714 family of actuator standards detailing the basic requirements for hydraulic linear actuators used with industrial valves. In addition to covering basic performance and design aspects the standard also contains details of optional equipment and ancillaries, conformity assessment requirements and type testing.

Several important Annexes are included in the standard covering endurance testing, as well as actuator selection and basic single acting actuator performance guidelines.

If you are involved in the design and manufacture of hydraulic actuators or valves that use them this new standard contains important information for the classification and validation of your products.

Supersedes

None, this is a new standard.

Continuous Improvement
