ISO 15848-1 is an International standard for fugitive emissions issued by the ISO Organization. It contains both dynamic lifecyclesand thermal cycles and is considered one of the most demanding fugitive emission standards for soft seated valves. This standard contains different levels of acceptance based on the number of thermal and mechanical cycles, temperature, and number of adjustments. The objective of ISO 15848-1 is to enable classification of performance in different designs and constructions of valves to reduce fugitive emissions.
The XOMOX XP3 Sleeved Plug Valves. with patent pending live loaded cartridge seal, are the first valves to pass all four thermal cycles without any packing adjustments, meeting the ISO 15848-1 standard at the BH BH CO3 200C SSA0.
The XP3 still contains the same maintenance-free and cavity-less design benefits of the standard XOMOX® sleeve plug valve, namely no costly lubrication required and no accumulation or contamination of process media.
