7.10 Response time

!The response time for the trip pressure for over-pressure monitoring is determined at ambient
temperature." The test starts with the closing member in the open position and with the SSD body at the
maximum operating pressure. If the response time is longer for lower operating pressures the test will also be
carried out at the minimum operating pressure. The monitored pressure is set at approx. 50 % of the set value.
The monitor pressure is raised so that the trip pressure plus the maximum value of deviation is reached within
0,2 s (see !Figure 6"). The response time shall be determined to an accuracy of < 0,1 s.

The response time is measured from when the monitored pressure reaches the highest limit value of the AG
until the closing member has reached its closed position. The test comprises three consecutive operations
and the response time is the arithmetic mean of the three measured values. The response time shall be stated
in the type and production surveillance test report (with a special note if it is longer than 2 s), together with a
description of the test conditions.

7.11 Relatching difference and unlatching

7.11.1 !Trip pressure for over-pressure monitoring"

!The tests are carried out at ambient temperature with the closing member in the closed position, the
monitored pressure at the highest trip pressure for over-pressure monitoring and with the SSD body at
maximum operating pressure."

The test starts with the monitored pressure in excess of the set value established in 7.9.4. The pressure is
slowly lowered to the minimum value within the accuracy group, at which point it shall not be possible to re-
latch the closing member.

Following this operation the monitored pressure is adjusted to the relatching difference value specified by the
manufacturer. In this condition the device is latched and for devices DN ≤ 150 impact tests are carried out in
accordance with !Figure 7" and Table 15 (or an equivalent arrangement). The impact loads in
accordance with Table 15, or other loads with equivalent energies, are applied ten times directly to the outlet
connection of the SSD by a drop hammer.

The test requirements are met if no unlatching of the shut-off device occurs.

The established relatching difference and the test conditions shall be stated in the test report.

7.11.2 Lower trip pressure

The test for lower trip pressure is carried out in a similar way to 7.11.1.

7.12 Closing force

The data specified by the manufacturer for all relevant loads are checked by testing the SSD under operating
conditions at ambient temperature. The test shall be carried out at the most unfavourable operating conditions,
to be specified by the manufacturer.

For this purpose the closing force FS for both the initial and final position of the closing member are
determined as the arithmetic mean of 3 tests respectively, similarly the friction (R) is determined. The friction
to be considered is that measured with motion (not static friction). The resulting loads (S) and (W) are
calculated.

The dynamic force (D) shall be considered only if in the fully open position it opposes the closing of the closing
member. It may be measured either at the most unfavourable conditions or calculated by:

D = Cr × A × ρ ul × cul2

where

Cr is the dynamic factor (see D.2);

A is the area of closing member in contact with the fluid (see D.1), in m2;

ρul is the density of the fluid with flow Qul (see 7.15) in kg/m3;

cul is the velocity of gas at the inlet flange under volumetric flow rate Qul (see 7.15) in m/s.

The test is passed if the requirements of 5.6 are met.

For SSDs with variable mounting positions (see 5.1.2) the most unfavourable case shall be considered.

This document contains the conditions for the compliance evaluation of any single SSD to the document.
However, in order to make an assessment of compliance of a full range of SSDs coming off a production line,
more elements may be needed such as a factory production control system or quality management system, a
type-testing scheme, a qualification scheme and/or a certification scheme. These systems are independent
from the strict evaluation of conformity of a single SSD, and may be required either by legislation or
regulations, or by contractual agreements.

Unless there is an appropriate system in place, CEN/TC 235 is of the opinion that the following clauses
represent minimal conditions to assess the compliance evaluation of a series of SSDs and of those coming off
a production line to this document.

For SSDs certified as in compliance with this document, the manufacturer should carry out the compliance
evaluation in accordance with B.4.

Where there is a conformity assessment to the PED, the compliance evaluation with this document should not
consider the requirements of clauses in Annex ZA. Nevertheless this annex may be considered as guideline
also in the conformity assessment to the PED.

B.2 Introduction
The compliance certification scheme should meet the requirements of this document and establish:

 if the production surveillance in accordance with 6.6 may be carried out by the body, if any, that has
certified the quality management system of the manufacturer;

 a guideline to be followed when any non-conformities are discovered during the production surveillance
as detailed in 6.6;

 the certificate of compliance in accordance with 5.10 of EN ISO/IEC 17025:2000.

B.3 Procedure
The evaluation of compliance should include:

 the type test in accordance with 6.3. The test samples should be chosen as per 6.4;

 a production surveillance as described in 6.6 every 5 years. The test samples should include two SSDs
for each certified series. The test samples should be chosen at random from the production population
present at the moment of the production surveillance visit to the manufacturer’s workshop.

4) For the purpose of these recommendations the definitions contained in EN 45020 are applied.

59
BS EN 14382:2005+A1:2009
EN 14382:2005+A1:2009 (E)

The production surveillance may be carried out by the body, if any, that has certified the quality management
system of the manufacturer, if it is provided in the certification scheme of the SSDs.

Any other verification pertinent to the quality management system of the manufacturer should be carried out
by the body, if any, that has certified the quality management system.

B.4 Manufacturer’s compliance evaluation


For each series of SSDs the manufacturer should carry out:

 the tests as described in Clause 7. The test samples where applicable should be chosen at least as
specified in 6.4;

 a permanent internal control of production using a quality management system based on EN ISO 9001.
The quality management system should be certified by a third party.

Furthermore, the manufacturer should retain and file:

 the material certificates for all pressure containing parts;

 the NDT reports and the inspection certificate,

for a period of at least ten years from the delivery of the SSD.

A copy of these certificates should be made available to the purchaser if requested in the order specification.

B.5 Issue of the certificate of compliance


If the series of SSDs complies with this document a ”Certificate of compliance” may be issued.

Pressure drop and flow coefficient

C.1 Calculation method for pressure drop throughout the SSD


For stand-alone SSDs the calculation of pressure drop should be carried out in accordance with the following
formula:

1 t + 273 Q 2

Alternative test method for verification of the strength of the trip


mechanism, valve seat and closing member

D.1 Test method


a) Assemble the SSD with all movable parts, including those in the overpressure monitoring unit, in the
normal operating position;

b) with no fluid flowing through the body of the SSD, measure the force Tsl at which the first yielding or
failure becomes apparent in any movable part or when the closing member closes;

c) repeat the test as above but with the SSD assembled with its underpressure monitoring unit;

d) Tsl is the force required to cause yielding/failure or the force required to close the closing member,
whichever is the lower;

e) the maximum volumetric flow rate at inlet flange should be:

!Suitability of safety shut-off device for damp operating conditions

K.1 Test procedure, requirement and acceptance criteria

This type test should be applied to SSDs actuated by a levers system not immersed in the flowing gas.

It should be carried out on, at least, one size of SSD, which should be representative of all sizes of the
relevant series of SSDs actuated by a levers system not immersed in the flowing gas.

The SSD shall be equipped with:

 the over-pressure setting element for the lowest set range and set at mid-point pdso. The setting shall
not be adjusted throughout the test and

 vent lines, if any, as specified by the manufacturer.

The SSD is installed inside an appropriate chamber:

 at most critical position specified by manufacturer,

 with the inlet and outlet end connections sealed,

 with only the controller under a pressure. Special provisions shall be adopted for SSDs that are
internally impulsed from the inlet or outlet side,

 latched at open position

and subjected 100 cycles of temperature and humidity as follows.

A cycle shall take a minimum period of 5 h from (60 ± 2) °C at minimum of 90 % relative humidity to (5 ±2) °C
at a minimum of 90 % relative humidity to (60 ±2) °C at minimum of 90 % relative humidity.

After completion of 100 cycles, the SSD shall be brought to ambient temperature and subjected to the
following test:

a) ensure that the body is at atmospheric pressure;

b) with the SSD in the open position, starting from approximately 80 % of the selected trip pressure, increase
the monitored pressure at a pressure change rate not greater than 1,5 % of the selected trip pressure per
second until closure of the SSD occurs.

The test requirements are met if the value of the trip pressure in b) is within:
