Cryogenic valve standard:
BS 6364 -- Cryogenic valve
SHELL SPE 77/200 -- -50℃ valve
SHELL SPE 77/209 -- 0~-50℃ valve

Comparison of API, DIN, BS, GB structure:
API 600 and BS1414, BS1873, BS1868, BS5351 have the most detailed structural regulations for valves
DIN gate valve standard EN1984 does not specify the structure
The new version of GB/T12234 is based on the equivalent adoption of the API600 standard

Valve common connection form
FF --- Flat Face Flat Flange Connection (150LB commonly used)
RF --- Raised Face convex flange connection
RTJ --- Ring Joint groove connection (trapezoidal groove)
SW --- Socket welding
NPT --- NPT threaded connection
WAFER - - Clip-on connection
BW long type - - Butt-Welding butt joint long connection
BW short type - - Butt-Welding butt joint short connection

DIN standard now uses EN standard structure length
EN 558-1 PN flange connection valve construction length (instead of DIN 3202), EN 558-2 CLASS flange connection valve construction length (instead of BS2080), EN 12982 butt weld end valve construction length (instead of DIN 3202), DIN standard The length of the structure including the length of the API valve is basically the same as the length of the GB.
The length of the EN 558-2 CLASS flanged valve is the same as ASME B16.10. Most DIN valve users are accustomed to using the F series structure length value in DIN3202.

Such as:
Gate: PN16-25---F5 series              PN40-100--F7 series
Globe: PN10-40--F1 series              PN63-160--F2 series
Check: PN10-40--F1 series              PN63-160--F2 series
Ball: PN10-40 DN10-100--F4 series    DN125-300--F5 series

Valve connection standard
ASME B16.10 -- Valve structural length
ASME B16.5 -- Steel flange and flanged fittings
ASME B16.47 -- Large diameter steel flange
MSS SP-44 -- Steel pipe flange
API 605 -- Compact Flange
ASME B16.25 -- Butt weld end
ASME B16.11 -- Socket and threaded end forged fittings
ASME B36.10 -- Welding and Seamless Steel Tubes

Flange comparison:
The old version of the DIN standard flange uses the DIN2501 standard (PN flange), the new version of the DIN standard uses the EN1092-1 PN flange, but can also include the CLASS flange.
The DIN2501 flange is basically identical to the GB flange and the HG European system flange.
DN15~50 The flanges of different pressures PN10~40 are the same.
The BS standard uses the BS 1560 CLASS flange in accordance with the ASME B16.5 flange, and the BS 4504 PN flange can also be used.
The API standard generally uses RF and RTJ flanges; DIN standard and GB general pressure
