Revise current ANS: ASME STS-1 - 20XX, Steel Stacks

$0

Justin Cassamassino 08/16/20
The Standard applies to steel stacks; i.e., those stacks where the primary supporting shell is made of steel. It outlines the consideration that must be made for both the mechanical and structural design, such as what consideration must be taken for wind- and seismic-induced vibrations. The document provides guidelines for the selection of material, linings, and coatings, and gives the requirements for lighting and lightning protection based upon existing building and federal codes. Additionally, this Standard gives the requirements for climbing and access based upon current Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards, emphasizes the important areas regarding fabrication and construction, and outlines areas requiring maintenance and inspection following initial operation. Although many of the topics within these guidelines may be used for all stacks, this Standard is intended to provide design guidelines for stacks containing nonflammable gases, such as combustion exhaust gases at low internal pressures.

Revise current ANS: ASME NM.1 - 20XX, Thermoplastic Piping Systems

$0

Jihoon Oh 08/31/20
(a) This standard prescribes requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, erection, examination, testing, and inspection of thermoplastic piping systems.

(b) Thermoplastic piping as used in this standard includes pipe, flanges, bolting, gaskets, valves, fittings, special connecting components, and the pressure containing portions of other piping components, whether manufactured in accordance with Standards referenced in this standard or specially designed. It also includes hangers and supports and other equipment items necessary to prevent overstressing the pressure containing components.

Revise current ANS: ASME HST-6 - 20XX, Performance Standard for Air Wire Rope Hoists

$0

Justin Cassamassino 09/08/20
(a)   This Standard establishes performance require- ments for air wire rope hoists for vertical lifting service involving material handling of freely suspended (unguided) loads using wire rope as the lifting medium with one of the following types of suspension:
(1)   lug
(2)   hook or clevis
(3)   trolley
(4)   base or deck mounted (does not include winches of the type covered by ASME B30.7)
(5)   wall or ceiling mounted (does not include winches of the type covered by ASME B30.7)
(b)   This Standard is applicable to hoists manufactured after the date on which this Standard is issued. It is not applicable to the following:
(1)   damaged or malfunctioning hoists
(2)   hoists that have been misused or abused
(3)   hoists that have been altered without authorization of the manufacturer or a qualified person
(4)   hoists used for lifting or supporting people
(5)   hoists used for the purpose of drawing both the load and the hoist up or down the hoist’s own wire rope
(6)   hoists used for marine and other applications as required by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD)
(c)   The requirements of this Standard shall be applied together with the requirements of ASME B30.16. Please also refer to ASME B30.16 for requirements pertaining to marking, construction, and installation; inspection, testing, and maintenance; and operations.


Revise current ANS: ASME B31.9 - 20XX, Building Services Piping

$0

Ray Rahaman 08/18/20
This Code Section has rules for the piping in industrial, institutional, commercial, and public buildings, and multi-unit residences, which does not require the range of sizes, pressures, and temperatures covered in B31.1. This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, installation, inspection, examination, and testing of piping systems for building services.

Create a new American National Standard (ANS): ASME B89.4.23 - 20XX, X -RAY COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) PERFORMANCE EVALUATION STANDARD

$0

Justin Cassamassino 08/25/20
This Standard specifies the dimensional measurement accuracy of industrial X-ray computed tomography (CT) systems for length, size, and form measurands of sphere-based test objects made of homogeneous materials. Medical CT systems are outside the scope of this Standard. This Standard is applicable to dimensional measurements made at the surface of the workpiece, i.e., at the workpiece material–air interface, including those of internal cavities.
