What does 1000 WOG mean?
As stated by JLSeagull, WOG stands for water-oil-gas. It should intend the same as CWP (Cold Working Pressure), that is the maximum pressure rating allowed under normal “ambient” temperature conditions, -29°C to 38°C. 1000 WOG is 1000 psi for gas-oil-water. (Note 2300 kPa = 333.6 psi)
What is 1000 WOG ball valve?
1000 WOG ball valves are used in sanitary, corrosive, or industrial applications where brass ball valves are not suitable. They are typically not used in hydraulic applications due to surging, temperature, and pressure requirements (refer to our N10704 heavier pattern hydraulic ball valves).
What is wog pressure rating?
The common method of stating the pressure rating of ball valves is in terms of WOG. The WOG rating specifies the maximum pressure per square inch that a valve can handle while the WOG indicates the valve is suitable for Water, Oil and Gas. U.S. Valve offers 400 WOG, 600 WOG, and 1,000 WOG ball valves.
Can I use a water ball valve for gas?
A valve designed for use with low pressure gases may fail if used for water at normal water pressures. A valve designed for use with water at normal pressures (max of about 100 psi) may not seal on gas at less than 1/2 psi pressure.
What does 150 PSI WSP mean?
WSP stands for water steam pressure or working steam pressure. It reflects the rating for the valve at water steam temperature. A valve rated at 600WOG/150WSP should be able to withstand 600 psi in a water or gas pipe and 150 psi if used in a steam supply system.
What does SWP stand for on a ball valve?
Working steam pressure (WSP) indicates the maximum steam pressure that a ball valve can withstand at the highest temperature rating. This might also be marked as SWP, meaning steam working pressure.
Can a water ball valve be used for gas?
Valves are designed, manufactured and tested for specific uses. A valve designed for use with low pressure gases may fail if used for water at normal water pressures. A valve designed for use with water at normal pressures (max of about 100 psi) may not seal on gas at less than 1/2 psi pressure.
How do I know if I have a gas valve?
Gas shutoff valves When the long side of the nub or handle is parallel to the incoming gas line, it’s open and the gas is flowing. When it’s turned a quarter turn, perpendicular to the incoming pipe, it’s closed.
