The new revision of API 600, expected for publish late 2021 or 2022, will incorporate group 3 material from ASME and have optional clauses for purchaser to issue special stem packing in lieu of the one used during API 624, while retaining requirement for valve to be qualified (type tested) to API 624. This will allow the manufacturers to provide many custom solutions for special application while still marking the valve “API 600”
