API 6DX - Standard for Actuator Sizing and Mounting Kits for Pipeline Valves - Revision

API have requested that a new Task Group be formed for the purpose of revising API 6DX - Standard for Actuator Sizing and Mounting Kits for Pipeline Valves (essentially a standard for actuators and mounting kits mounted on API 6D pipeline valves). This document was originally published as ISO 12490, and adopted by API as API 6DX.

The revision to API 6DX will use API 6DSSX as a template.

Project Leader Ed Edgar is looking for technical experts who are willing and able to participate in writing this revision over the next 18-24 months. The project timeline is to have the document fully revised by Q1 2019, with the document going out for ballot early 2019. Target for final publication end of 2019.

Because of travel restrictions, all meetings will be held in the Houston area but conference call dial-in is a standard way to participate too.

If you or someone within your organization is interested in participating in the Task Group, please let Rob know - rob@bvaa.org.uk at your earliest convenience.
