Reaffirm current ANS: ASME B16.33-2012 - R20XX, Manually Operated Metallic Gas Valves for Use in Gas Piping Systems up to 125 psi (sizes NPS 1/2 through NPS 2)

$0

Richard Lucas 11/14/17
This Standard covers requirements for manually operated metallic valves sizes NPS ½ through NPS 2, for outdoor installation as gas shutoff valves at the end of the gas service line and before the gas regulator and meter where the designated gauge pressure of the gas piping system does not exceed 175 psi (12.1 bar). The Standard applies to valves operated in a temperature environment between -20°F and 150°F (-29°C and 66°C).

For proposed reaffirmations and withdrawals, copies of the current standard may be purchased from ASME Customer Care at customercare@asme.org or by calling 800-843-2763. You may also purchase a copy online at http://catalog.asme.org.

Reaffirm current ANS: ASME B16.38-2012 - R20XX, Large Metallic Valves for Gas Distribution (manually operated, NPS-2 ½ to 12, 125 psig maximum)

$0

Richard Lucas 11/14/17
This Standard covers requirements for manually operated metallic valves in nominal sizes 2½ (DN 65) through 12 (DN 300) having the inlet and outlet on a common centerline. These valves are intended for controlling the flow of gas from open to fully closed positions, for use in distribution and service lines where the maximum gage pressure does not exceed 125 psig (8.6 bar). Valve seats, seals, and stem packing may be nonmetallic.

For proposed reaffirmations and withdrawals, copies of the current standard may be purchased from ASME Customer Care at customercare@asme.org or by calling 800-843-2763. You may also purchase a copy online at http://catalog.asme.org.

Reaffirm current ANS: ASME B16.44-2012 - R20XX, Manually Operated Metallic Gas Valves for Use in House Piping Systems

$0

Richard Lucas 11/14/17
This Standard applies to new valve construction and covers quarter turn manually operated metallic valves in sizes NPS 4¼ and tubing sizes 1¼ O.D. These valves are intended for indoor installation as gas shutoff valves when installed in aboveground fuel gas piping downstream of the gas meter outlet and upstream of the inlet connection to a gas appliance. The valves covered by this Standard are intended for service at temperatures between 32°F (0°C) and 125°F (52°C) at pressure ratings not to exceed 5 psi (0.34 bar). When so designated by the manufacturer, these valves may be installed for service outdoors and/or at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) and/ or above 125°F (52°C).

For proposed reaffirmations and withdrawals, copies of the current standard may be purchased from ASME Customer Care at customercare@asme.org or by calling 800-843-2763. You may also purchase a copy online at http://catalog.asme.org.

Withdraw current ANS: ASME B30.11-2010 - 20XX, Monorails and Underhung Cranes

$68

Kathryn Hyam, PE 12/12/17
Volume B30.11 includes provisions that apply to the
construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing,
and maintenance of underhung crane and monorail systems, track sections, and load-carrying members, such as end trucks or carriers (commonly called trolleys) that travel either on the external or internal lower flange of a track section. The track sections include single monorail track, crane bridge girders and jib booms, all curves, switches, transfer devices, and lift and drop sections.
Provisions apply to both power-driven and handoperated
equipment in which the carriers are independently
controlled. Items within this scope may be referred to as “equipment.”

For proposed reaffirmations and withdrawals, copies of the current standard may be purchased from ASME Customer Care at customercare@asme.org or by calling 800-843-2763. You may also purchase a copy online at http://catalog.asme.org.

Revise current ANS: ASME B30.29 - 20XX, Self-Erecting Tower Cranes

$0

Kathryn Hyam, PE 11/06/17
B30.29 includes provisions that apply to the construction, operation, inspection, testing, and maintenance
of powered self-erect tower cranes that adjust operating radius by means of a trolley traversing a jib. These may be horizontal, elevated, articulating, or telescoping, and used for vertical lifting and lowering of freely suspended, unguided loads that consist of equipment and materials.
Self-erect tower cranes have vertical or nearly vertical masts that are bottom slewing and mounted on fixed, traveling, or mobile bases. The cranes are capable of moving or being moved from jobsite to jobsite fully assembled or nearly fully assembled.
This Volume does not apply to cranes used for nonvertical lifting service or lifting a guided load, or to truckmounted material delivery cranes with a tubular boom and trolley traversing the boom. Tower cranes (refer to ASME B30.3) and mobile crane tower attachments (refer
to ASME B30.5) are not within the scope of this Volume.

Revise current ANS: ASME B30.5 - 20XX, Mobile and Locomotive Cranes

$0

Kathryn Hyam, PE 10/30/17
B30.5 applies to crawler cranes, locomotive cranes, wheel-mounted cranes, and any variations thereof that retain the same fundamental characteristics. The scope includes only cranes of the above types that are basically powered by internal combustion engines or electric motors.
