CNG Relief Valve Recertification or Replacement
Were you aware that the pressure relief valves throughout your compressed natural gas station need to be replaced or recertified every three (3) years?
That’s right; according to NFPA-52 section 18.104.22.168.3 Pressure relief valves shall be tested and recertified at least every 3 years. ASME code pressure relief valves shall be tested in accordance with NB-514, Accreditation of “VR” Repair Organizations.”
The Ingersoll Rand CNG compressors, models 05H20, 05H25 and 20H40 each have four safety relief valves; one for each stage of compression.
