Design And Testing of Kinfe Gate Valve

MSS SP-81 applies to metal seated knife gate valves, 2" to 24" size, 150 psi. Resilient seated knife gate valves are not covered under MSS SP-81. These products are subject to the individual manufacturer's internal testing &design standard



MSS SP-81 requires the valve body (pressure vessel and related structure) to be designed for and hydrostatically pressure tested to 1.5 times the rated working pressure. Valve rated pressure - 150 psi Body test pressure - 225 psi



MSS SP-81 requires the gate to be designed for and hydrostatically pressure tested to 1.1 times the rated working pressure. Valve rated pressure - 150 psi Gate test pressure - 165 psi



MSS SP-81 has an allowable leakage rate (for metal to metal seated valves) of 40 cc per inch of diameter, per minute at 40 psi pressure. On a 12" valve this would be equal to 40 times 12, or 480 cc per minute at 40 psi. Maximum allowable leakage of 2.73 LTR/MIN when tested with water at 40 psi applies in normal flow direction No visible leakage when tested with water at 40 psi (for soft seated valves only).

Face to Face


MSS SP81 has specified face to face dimension and tolerance for each valve size to assure ease of installation for the consumer, regardless of the valve manufacturer
