However, with all this legislation by the states, no two had the same rules. What disposition should be assigned to nonconforming items? Those that are duplicates of successfully operating installations, 2.

With these three design conditions known, the owner will have sufficient information for deciding whether or not to impose high pressure piping requirements. One design condition may establish the pipe wall thickness and another may establish the component rating, such as for flanges.

Occasional insight can be gleaned from published interpretations of the Code, but these interpretations are answers to very specific questions asked by Code users.

In all cases, kPa will be used for gauge pressure, MPa will be used for stress. If a chemical plant is forced off stream for one reason or another, very few people are affected. A second edition was released in Grover Shoe Company plant Figure 1. Those that can be judged adequate zsme comparison with previously analyzed systems, and 3. This will greatly assist the guieebook in applying the intent of the Code.

Design Conditions Design Pressure and Temperature The design pressure shall be based on the highest pressure the piping system will experience. The designer must determine the mill under-run tolerance for the manufacturing process and add that guideboo, to the tm value before making the purchase. A substantial amount of additional detail may be necessary to completely engineer and construct a process piping system, depending upon the piping scope and complexity.

What is the Code saying? In fact, it is highly recommended that the appropriate current engineering codes and standards be reviewed in detail prior to any decision making.

Force, moment, and energy, for force, newtons, Nwill replace pound force, lbfnewton-meter N-m will replace inch-pound-force, in. It is the owners responsibility to specify the fluid service category for each piping system. Again, the primary stress is less than yield at temperature. What reliability do you want the plant to have? With the fluid service category known, then the designer can make proper material and component selection, as well as employ the code required fabrication and inspection requirements based on the selected fluid category.

How long do you want the plant to last? How then does one analyze a vibrating pipe? Codes would find little acceptance if their techniques and procedures were beyond the understanding of the piping engineer. Tangent lengths should be computed to minimize the number of subsequent shop or field welds required in the piping system and should consider the maximum dimensions permitted for transportation of bends or assembled piping to the job site.

With more than 20 years of domestic and international experience with consulting engineers and operating companies, Mr. Flange rating procedures will be discussed later in this chapter. This book offers some insight into the basic technologies associated with design, materials, fabrication, testing, and examination of process piping systems.

The wall thickness equivalent used in this manual is mm to one decimal accuracy, e.

And, for dimension critical applications, as an alternative to specification of tangent lengths, one could consider specifying center to end dimensions i. In more practical terms, cold bending of carbon and low alloy steels is carried out at temperatures in the black heat ho where the material is ferritic in structure. There are no precise rules governing which attributes to apply in defining material groups, and the level of detail afforded the classification system depends guudebook on the level of detail needed to communicate specific ideas.


During discussions with material specialists, one often has the feeling of visiting a foreign country. Fabrication, castu, and erection require the use of many special processes including: Alternatively, materials may be placed in more narrowly defined generic groups such as mild steel, 3XX series stainless steel, or NiCrMo alloy.

Executive Editor John E. The Code does not address high cycle – low stress piping life in vibrating systems. Pressure test requirements for piping systems before plant start-up. An example of the application of this equation follows: The key components of the design conditions are the design pressure and the design temperature.

Examiners are usually employees of the manufacturer, fabricator, employee of the owner, an employee or erector, or employees of a service agency of an engineering or scientific subcontracted by the manufacturer, organization, or of a recognized fabricator, or erector.

These crude boilers were the beginning of pressure containment systems. Further assume that the process requires a short time pressure-temperature variation above normal operating as shown in Table 2. This complexity will be greatly simplified when the analyst has an understanding of the Principal Axis System.

This edition first appeared in Boiler explosions continued to occur. Codes would be of little use if the equations specified were very complicated and difficult to use. What is the basis of these time dependent stress or rating limits? However, changes to direction of flow may also be made through the use of pipe bends.

Systems of uniform size that have no more than two anchor points, no intermediate restraints, and fall within the limitation of the equation:
