  • Abstract:
    This European Standard specifies the safety, construction and performance requirements for automatic shutoff valves for use with gas burners, gas appliances and similar use, hereafter referred to as 'valves'. This European Standard is applicable to valves with declared maximum inlet pressures up to and including 500 kPa (5 bar) of nominal connection sizes up to and including DN 250 for use with one or more fuel gases in accordance with EN 437. This European Standard is applicable to electrically operated valves and to valves actuated by fluids where the control valves for these fluids are actuated electrically, but not to any external electrical devices for switching the control signal or actuating energy. An assessment method for valve designs is given by this European Standard. This European Standard is also applicable to valves where the flow rate is controlled by external electrical signals, either in discrete steps or proportional to the applied signal. This European Standard is also applicable to valves fitted with closed position indicator switches. NOTE Provisions for final product inspection and testing by the manufacturer are not specified. This European standard establishes methodologies for the determination of a Performance Level (PL) in accordance with EN 13611:2007+A2:2011, Annexes K and L.
