• ISA96, Valve Actuator Committee


    If you are interested in participating on ISA96, please contact the Chairman, Vince Mezzano, or the ISA Standards Administrator, Eliana Brazda, at ebrazda@isa.org or (919) 990-9228.

    Scope

    The Committee will develop a standard consisting of four parts:

    Part 1 Terminology and Definitions

    Part 2 The basic requirements for electric valve actuators for both on-off duty and modulating applications. The section will include guidelines and recommendations for manufacturing process control, device protection, and testing.

    Part 3 The basic requirements for pneumatic valve actuators of the single- and double-acting types used for on-off and modulating applications. The section will include guidelines and recommendations for protection, modulation, and testing.

    Part 4 The basic requirements for hydraulic valve actuators of the single- and double-acting types used for on-off and modulating applications. The section will include guidelines and recommendations for protection, modulation, and testing.

    Purpose

    To provide basic requirements for pneumatic, electric, and hydraulic actuators not manufactured by the valve, damper, or penstock manufacturer. Definitions of terms, performance requirements, and methods of sizing and selection will be developed.

    ISA Meetings

    ISA96 committee and subcommittee meetings were held 3, 6, and 7 November in conjunction with the 2013 Fall Leaders Meeting and ISA Automation Week 2013.  Information about the next series of meetings will be posted shortly, and agendas and additional details will be distributed as soon as they are available.
