RINA has developed a method statement which applies to valves intended for construction of gas transmission and distribution pipelines as well as hydrogen piping systems.
Following the creation of a H2-ready carbon steel line pipes method statement, this is a further step in supporting manufacturers in delivering products for hydrogen transportation and distribution. A key part of our continued efforts to assist the entire industry along the value chain in staying ahead of the energy transition and keeping pace with decarbonization demands.
What are the applicable requirements to be satisfied by a manufactured carbon steel valve to be qualified as “Hydrogen-Ready”?
Our method statement for Hydrogen-Ready metallic valves includes:
·Applications and limitations
·Design criteria for unlisted valves
·Inspection and test plan
·Technical guidelines for material selection
Once the requirements have been satisfied and properly verified, RINA will issue an official statement stating that the valve in question is H2-ready.
