PURPOSE AND USE OF PROCESS INDUSTRY PRACTICES

In an effort to minimize the cost of process industry facilities, this Practice has
been prepared from the technical requirements in the existing standards of major
industrial users, contractors, or standards organizations. By harmonizing these technical
requirements into a single set of Practices, administrative, application, and engineering
costs to both the purchaser and the manufacturer should be reduced. While this Practice
is expected to incorporate the majority of requirements of most users, individual
applications may involve requirements that will be appended to and take precedence
over this Practice. Determinations concerning fitness for purpose and particular matters
or application of the Practice to particular project or engineering situations should not
be made solely on information contained in these materials. The use of trade names
from time to time should not be viewed as an expression of preference but rather
recognized as normal usage in the trade. Other brands having the same specifications
are equally correct and may be substituted for those named. All Practices or guidelines
are intended to be consistent with applicable laws and regulations including OSHA
requirements. To the extent these Practices or guidelines should conflict with OSHA or
other applicable laws or regulations, such laws or regulations must be followed.
Consult an appropriate professional before applying or acting on any material
contained in or suggested by the Practice.
This Practice is subject to revision at any time by the responsible Function Team and will
be reviewed every 5 years. This Practice will be revised, reaffirmed, or withdrawn.
Information on whether this Practice has been revised may be found at www.pip.org.

1. Purpose
This document provides the detailed descriptions for the purchase of gate valves included in
PIP Piping Line Class Material Specifications.
2. References
The latest edition of the following industry standards and references shall be considered an
integral part of this Practice. Short titles will be used herein when appropriate.
Process Industry Practices (PIP)
– PIP PNSMV002 - Valve Commodity Code System
3. Organization
The valves listed in Sections 7 and 8 of this Practice are sorted by the unique valve number
designation in ascending alphanumeric sequence (e.g., GA02BT000, GA12DC500, etc.).
4. Content
This document includes the following items:
a. PIP cover sheet
b. Purpose statement
c. References
d. Organization and contents
e. Valve number - line class cross reference
f. Detail purchase descriptions
5. Valve Designation System
Refer to PIP PNSMV002 for a full explanation of the format used to structure the valve
numbers listed within this Practice. In summary, the format is as follows:
Field 1 Field 2 Field 3 Field 4
Valve Type Pressure Class Body Material
End Connection Type
Sequence Number
2 alphabetic characters 2 numeric characters 2 alphabetic characters 3 numeric characters
Since this Practice only addresses gate valves, the first two characters will always be GA.

6. Notes
6.1 Occasionally, valve size ranges listed in this Practice are broader than the size ranges
shown for the same valves on a given piping line class specification. While the “most
common practice” has been used to specify valve size ranges on line class
specifications, a User may need to utilize a valve in a size outside this “common
practice” choice. Thus, for reference purposes, the full size range for which a given
valve is typically manufactured is shown in this Practice.
6.2 Requirements for gear operators for gate valves will not be specified in piping line
specifications or valve specifications. Owners will define the requirements for gear
operators in their specifications.
6.3 Where fluids can be trapped (e.g., in double-seated valves) and subjected to heating
and subsequent expansion, means of pressure relief should be considered to avoid
excessive pressure build-up.
