Understanding Valve Standards - API

Posted by Shopify Admin on

API refers to the American Petroleum Institute, which, according to their site, is the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry. Through its 85+ years of experience, it has helped develop numerous standards for everything from valves to tanks and more. Today, we're going to discuss the various valve standards that API has developed along with some Valve Warehouse valves that feature API standards. 

API Valve Standards

Valves that meet API standards are typically used for industrial purposes. They are designed to help industry professionals improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their work, meet legislative and regulatory requirements, and protect worker health. Standards such as API 576, which details the inspection and repair practices for automatic pressure-relieving devices commonly used in the oil and petrochemical industries, help ensure valves are able to withstand the rigors of industrial use. Most of Valve Warehouse's carbon and stainless steel valves carry API-598 and API-607 Fire Safe certifications, click here to view our API certified products.
