ISO 15848 : Guichon qualifies its valves for fugitive emissions

With tougher environmental regulations targeted to measure VOC atmospheric emissions in the industrial sector, and the observation that industrial valves are considered as the main source of fugitive emissions, measures must be taken by valve manufacturers.
Guichon, in the interest of both performance and environmental protection, has decided to qualify their valves so that they can offer highly leak-proof process/atmosphere products to their customers.

An actuator is a device that allows the operation of a valve (open/close/set). All valves function under the operating conditions proper to a process.

The sizing of an actuator must primarily take into account the forces required to:
• Ensure the sealing contact pressure for tight shut-off of the valve
• Overcome frictional forces of the gland packing
• Overcome the pressure difference between upstream and downstream of the valve (ΔP)

There are different actuation system : manual, pneumatic, hydraulic or electric.
