    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes fire type-testing requirements and the fire type-test method for confirming the pressure-containing capability of a valve under pressure during and after the fire test. Where requirements in a valve product standard differ from those in this standard, then requirements of product standard apply.
