CASTI Guidebook to ASME B – Process

Further ot that the process requires a short time pressure-temperature variation above normal operating as shown in Table 2. Guudebook allowable stress limit for SL based on normal operating conditions is the hot allowable, Sh, which is: In fact, such designers who are capable of applying a more rigorous analysis have the latitude to do so provided they can demonstrate the validity of their approach.

Design Conditions Design Pressure and Temperature The design pressure shall be based on the highest pressure the piping system will experience. As an example, for radiographic exposure of circumferential butt welds in a process piping system, an ASNT Level I radiographic qualification should be adequate.

For low alloy, intermediate alloy, and high alloy transformation hardenable steels, microalloyed steels, nontransformation hardenable steels, and non-ferrous metals and alloys, specialist help should CASTI Guidebook to ASME B Clauses governing these activities are found mainly in B Most examination requirements are applicable to welds, but examinations may also be necessary for other items including castings and bends.

The Code provides only a means to guide the designer to analyze the design of a piping system, by providing simplified equations asem determine guiddbook stress levels, wall thickness, or the design adequacy of components, and acceptance criteria for examination.

In a vibrating system, the stress concern is high cycle, low stress. Guidance in determining safe piping stress levels and design life. In fact, it is highly recommended that the appropriate current engineering codes and standards be reviewed in detail prior to any decision making.

The remainder of this chapter will focus on most of these modified requirements. There are no precise rules governing which attributes to apply in defining material groups, and the level asmf detail afforded the classification system depends largely on the level of detail needed to communicate specific ideas.

Those that can be judged adequate by comparison with previously analyzed systems, and 3. Another graph covering that stress and cycle range would have to be selected to address cycle life of that lower stress range.

SE a secondary stress will be discussed in the Displacement Stress Range section of this chapter.

Nevertheless, efficient use of B However, with all this legislation by the states, no two had the same rules. Also, tighter tolerances may be required for bends requiring passage of internal inspection tools.

The Code is clear as to which piping systems require an analysis; all systems require an analysis with the exception of the following: Any conclusions regarding the basis or intent of Code rules must be derived or inferred from the interpretations. This new economical source of power was used to drive machines in factories and even enabled new and faster forms of transportation to be developed. In more practical terms, cold bending of carbon and low alloy steels is carried out at temperatures in the black heat range where the material is ferritic in structure.

Here, the safety of the general public is affected. In the normal operation of a refinery or chemical plant, there is a need, on occasion, for catalyst regeneration, steam-out or other short term conditions that may cause temperature-pressure variations above design.

On April 27,at the conclusion of the Civil War, 2, Union prisoners of war were released from Confederate prison camps at Vicksburg, Mississippi. This permits equations to be written in dimensionless format so when consistent units are used, the units may be either from the foot-pound or the metric system.

These material designation systems are discussed in more detail under the next three headings.


Pressure test requirements for piping systems before plant start-up. What Extent of Examination is Required? Inb331.3 spectacular explosion occurred in which 27 boilers out of a battery of 36 burst in rapid succession at a coal mine near Shamokin, Pennsylvania, totally destroying the entire facility and killing 6 people. Sc and Sh are the basic allowable stresses for the cold and hot conditions as defined in the Defintion and Basis for Allowable Stress section in Chapter 1.

One design condition may establish the pipe wall thickness and another may establish the component rating, such as for flanges.

How long do you want the plant to last? The American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASMEalready recognized as the foremost engineering organization in the United States, was urged by interested sections of its membership to formulate and recommend a uniform standard specification for design, construction, and operation of steam boilers and other pressure vessels. What disposition should be assigned to nonconforming items?

Consequently, materials may be generically grouped according to very broad characteristics, for example metal or nonmetal, ferrous or nonferrous, or cast or wrought. What is the instantaneous pressure rise above operating pressure? Chapter IX becomes a stand-alone Code, drawing requirements from the first six chapters of B Category D Fluid Service 3. Applying the use fraction sum rule, is the elbow over stressed? If indeed, the hoop stress exceeded the yield strength of the material at temperature, a primary stress failure would occur.

In the ten-year period from to3, boiler explosions were recorded, an average of one per day. In addition, prohibitions and warnings about unsafe designs and practices are also included. The primary reason for this requirement is the increased risk of reheat cracking associated with these low alloy steels.
