Create a new American National Standard (ANS): ASME BPV Section XIII - 20XX, Rules for Overpressure Protection

$0

Colleen O'Brien 02/08/21
The rules of this section provide the requirements for the overpressure protection of pressurized equipment such as boilers, pressure vessels, and piping systems. Overpressure protection methods include: (1) releasing excess pressure by use of pressure relief devices (2)
applying controls to prevent an incease in pressure (overpressure protection by system design)
(3) using a combination of (1) and (2).

Revise current ANS: ASME BPVC Section I - 20XX, Rules for Construction of Power Boilers

$0

Umberto D'Urso 02/08/21
This Code covers rules for construction of power boilers, electric boilers, miniature boilers, high-temperature water boilers, heat recovery steam generators, solar receiver steam generators, certain fired pressure vessels, and liquid phase thermal fluid heaters to be used in stationary service and includes those power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service. The rules are applicable to boilers in which steam or other vapor is generated at a pressures of more than 15 psig (100 kPa) for use external to itself, and high temperature water boilers intended for operation at pressures exceeding 160 psig (1.1 MPa) and/or temperatures exceeding 250 degree F (120 degree C).

Revise current ANS: ASME BPVC Section IV - 20XX, Rules for Construction of Heating Boilers

$0

Carlton Ramcharran 02/08/21
The rules of this Section of the Code cover minimum construction requirements for the design, fabrication, installation, and inspection of steam heating, hot water heating, hot water supply boilers that are directly fired with oil, gas, electricity, coal, or other solid or liquid fuels, and for operation at or below the pressure and temperature limits set forth in this document. Similar rules for potable water heaters are also included.

Revise current ANS: ASME BPVC Section V - 20XX, Nondestructive Examination

$0

Carlton Ramcharran 02/08/21
Section V of the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code contains requirements and methods for nondestructive examination (NDE) which are referenced and required by other Sections of the Code. These NDE methods are intended to detect surface and internal imperfections in materials, welds, fabricated parts and components. The following NDE methods are addressed: radiography, ultrasonics, liquid penetrant, magnetic particle, eddy current, visual, leak testing, and acoustic emission.

Revise current ANS: ASME BPVC Section VII - 20XX, Recommended Guidelines for the Care of Power Boilers

$0

Umberto D'Urso 02/08/21
The purpose of Section VII, Recommended Guidelines for the Care of Power Boilers, is to promote safety in the use of power boilers. These guidelines are intended for use by those directly responsible for operating, maintaining, and examining power boilers.
With respect to the application of these guidelines, a power boiler is a pressure vessel constructed in compliance with Section I in which, due to the application of heat, steam is generated at a pressure exceeding 15 psig (100 kPa) for use external to the boiler. The heat may be derived from the combustion of fuel (solids, liquids, or gases), from the hot waste gases of other chemical reactions, or from the application of electrical energy.
