The difference between American standard valve, German standard valve and China standard valve

(American Standard, German Standard, National Standard) The difference between the valves:
First of all, it can be distinguished from the standard codes of various countries: GB is the national standard, the American standard (ANSI), and the German standard (DIN). Secondly, it can be distinguished from the model. The valve model of the national standard is named according to the pinyin letter of the valve category. For example, the safety valve is A, butterfly valve, D, diaphragm valve, G, check valve, H, globe valve, J, throttle valve, L, drain valve, P, ball valve, Q, trap, S, gate valve, and so on. ,
There are no special specifications between American standard valves, German standard valves, and national standard valves. It is nothing more than the difference between production standards and pressure levels. The material of the valve body and internal parts are easy to say, it is nothing but cast iron, cast steel, stainless steel, etc. Taking the American standard as an example, the pressure level of the American standard ranges from 125LB to 2500LB (or 200PSI to 6000PSI), and the main standard is API, ANSI, commonly referred to as API, and ANSI valves are American standard valves; German standard valve pressures are usually PN10 to PN320. DIN standard; if the valve is flanged, the corresponding flange standard must be adopted. The world’s main valve standards are also the American Standard Petroleum Institute API standard, the American national standard ANSI, the German standard DIN, the Japanese standard JIS, the national standard GB, the European standard EN, and the British standard BS. ,
Simply put, American standard valves are valves designed, manufactured, produced and tested according to American standards. German standard valves are valves designed, manufactured, produced and tested according to German standards. The national standard valve is the valve designed, manufactured, produced and tested according to our country’s standard. The differences between the three are roughly as follows: 1. The flange standards are different; 2. The structural length is different; 3. The inspection requirements are different.

Our products use advanced manufacturing technology, and strictly conform to API, DIN, BS, EN, ISO, GB and other international standards. The main products are butterfly valves, gate valves, check valves, globe valves, valve parts (Valve body, Valve disc, Valve shaft, Valve seat…), etc. Our products are widely used in various fields such as marine industry, shipbuilding, petrochemical, metallurgy, water treatment, fire fighting, water supply and drainage, etc. The company has won unanimous recognition and praise from customers with high quality and good reputation.

Current status and development of Chinese valves

Domestic status: In terms of technical support for valve production and R&D, domestic valves are not lagging behind foreign valves. On the contrary, many products are comparable to international companies in terms of technology

and innovation. The development of the domestic valve industry should move towards high-end modernization.

Driven by the four major forces of industrialization, urbanization, reform and globalization, the prospects of my country’s valve equipment manufacturing industry are still broad. In the future, high-end, localization, and modernization of the valve industry will be the main development direction of the valve industry in the future. Pursuing continuous innovation and creating a new market for valve companies can enable companies to survive and develop in the increasingly competitive pump and valve industry.

With the continuous development of valve technology and the continuous expansion of valve application fields, corresponding valve standards are becoming more and more indispensable. The valve industry products have entered a period of innovation. Not only the product categories need to be updated, but the internal management of the enterprise also needs to deepen the reform according to the industry standards.

Therefore, it is necessary to make full use of existing standards while looking forward to the future, and to develop new standards and new systems that can be used in the future, so as to promote the higher-level development of valve technology. In the future, the valve industry will develop in two main directions: one is to develop from a single variety to multiple varieties and specifications; the other is to develop in the direction of energy saving.

According to industry insiders, pump and valve companies can only effectively and clearly understand the status quo of the industry, continuously strengthen and optimize their products, strengthen their awareness of danger, strengthen corporate culture and market service concepts, and only achieve fastness in stability, refinement in fastness, and stability in refinement. Only in this way can companies survive and develop in the increasingly competitive pump and valve industry.

The society is an era of information explosion. It is inevitable for companies to encounter competitors in products. There is competition in the industry, which is a good thing for some companies. Because of competition, enterprises have improved the quality of products and services, and consumers have obtained better or more consumption and services with less money. The market is a “screen”. While the industry is developing and progressing, the market is also surviving the fittest enterprises in the industry. Although the current status of the development of the butterfly valve industry is gaining momentum, the national support policies have been greatly improved, and the market demand has continued to increase. Due to the fierce competition in the industry, the pump and valve industry has also made domestic pump and valve related technologies to improve, but many interference factors indicate The development prospects of the pump valve industry are not optimistic.

For some large competitive enterprises, through competition, the scale of the enterprise has become larger and larger, and the popularity has become higher and higher. However, for some small and medium-sized enterprises that are not competitive, they may face the risk of being merged or going bankrupt. In the increasingly fierce valve market, only companies with core competitiveness can gain a foothold in the market, and innovation becomes a weapon for companies to win the market.

Valve cleaning steps and assembly requirements

Valve cleaning steps:

The valve parts must go through the following processes before assembly:

  • According to the processing requirements, some parts need to be polished, and the surface must not have processing burrs, etc.;
  • All parts are degreased;
  • After degreasing is completed, pickling passivation is carried out, and the cleaning agent does not contain phosphorus;
  • Rinse with pure water after pickling and purification, and there should be no residues of medicament, and this step is omitted for carbon steel parts;
  • Dry the parts one by one with a non-woven cloth, and do not leave the surface of the parts such as wire wool or dry with clean nitrogen;
  • Use non-woven fabric or precision filter paper dipped in analytical pure alcohol to wipe each part until there is no dirty color.

Valve assembly requirements:

The cleaned parts must be sealed and stored for installation. The requirements for the installation process are as follows:

  •  The installation workshop must be clean, or set up a temporary clean area, such as newly purchased color striped cloth or plastic film, to prevent dust from entering during the installation process.
  • Assemblers must wear clean cotton overalls, cotton caps, no leakage of hair, clean shoes on feet, and plastic gloves on hands.
  • Assembly tools must be degreased and cleaned before assembly to ensure cleanliness.

other requirements:

1. Purge the assembled valve with nitrogen for at least 1 minute.
2. The air tightness test must use pure nitrogen.
3. After passing the air tightness test, encapsulate and seal with a clean polyethylene cap. The polyethylene cap should be soaked in organic solvent and wiped clean before use.
4. Then seal it with a vacuum bag.
5. Final packing.
6. Measures must be taken to ensure that the package is not damaged during transportation.
4. Acceptance requirements
The acceptance is followed. Before assembly, each component is wiped with clean precision filter paper. If the dead corner of the component is selected, the filter paper does not change color as qualified.
