Reaffirm current ANS: ASME B29.28-2015 - R20XX, High-Strength Chains for Power Transmission and Tension Linkages

$38

Justin Cassamassino 11/24/20
This Standard covers roller chains that are specifically designed to withstand occasional high shock loads or high starting loads that are encountered in certain construction equipment and other severe-duty applications.

Reaffirm current ANS: ASME B29.300-2015 - R20XX, Agricultural, Detachable, and Pintle Chains, Attachments, and Sprockets

$92

Justin Cassamassino 11/24/20
AGRICULTURAL CHAINS: This Standard covers chains that are a series of alternately assembled roller links and pin links in which the pins articulate inside the bushings and the rollers are free to turn on the bushings. The pitch of the sidebars is derived from the pitch of B29.6 series chain contained in the B29.300 Standard. Pin link plates and roller link plates have identical contours.

DETACHABLE CHAINS: This Standard covers chains that are a series of successively assembled steel links in which the end bars articulate inside the hook. The chain is detached by flexing it and driving the end bar out of the adjoining hook. Sprockets for use with steel detachable chains covered by this Standard are only those with dimensions controlling the surfaces that must properly engage or clear the chain.

PINTLE CHAINS: This Standard covers chains that are a series of one-piece formed links, connected by pins, that articulate within the barrels of adjacent links. Each link has a barrel end and an open end. The pins are fixed against rotation by mechanical locks or interference fits at the open end of the link. The barrels are open, leaving the pins exposed on one side. Sprocket contact is made against the barrel or against the exposed pin.

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 https://www.asme.org/shop/standards.

Revise current ANS: ASME BTH-1 - 20XX, Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices

$0

Elijah Dominguez 11/02/20
This Standard provides minimum structural, mechanical, and electrical design criteria for ASME B30.20, Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices.
The provisions in this Standard apply to the design or modification of below-the-hook lifting devices. Compliance with requirements and criteria that may be unique to specialized industries and environments is outside the scope of this Standard.
Lifting devices designed to this Standard shall comply with ASME B30.20, Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices. ASME B30.20 includes provisions that apply to the marking, construction, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance, and operation of below-the-hook lifting devices.
The provisions defined in this Standard address the most common and broadly applicable aspects of the design of below-the-hook lifting devices. A qualified person shall determine the appropriate methods to be used to address design issues that are not explicitly covered in the Standard so as to provide design factors and/or performance consistent with the intent of this Standard.

Revise current ANS: ASME CSD-1 - 20XX, Controls and Safety Devices for Automatically Fired Boilers

$0

Carlton Ramcharran 12/07/20
The rules of this Standard cover requirements for the assembly, installation, maintenance, and operation of controls and safety devices on automatically operated
boilers directly fired with gas, oil, gas–oil, or electricity, subject to the service limitations, exclusions, and acceptance of other listings in CG-120, CG-130, and CG-140, respectively.

Revise current ANS: ASME PTC 18 - 20XX, Hydraulic Turbines and Pump-Turbines

$0

Daniel Papert 10/27/20
This Code applies to all sizes and types of hydraulic turbines or pump-turbines. It defines methods for ascertaining performance by measuring flow rate (discharge), head, and power, from which efficiency may be determined. Requirements are included for pretest arrangements, types of instrumentation, methods of measurement, testing procedures, methods of calculation, and contents of test reports.

Revise current ANS: ASME PTC 47 - 20XX, Performance Test Code for Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle Power Generation Plants

$0

Donnie Alonzo 11/03/20
This Code covers a defined range of primary fuel characteristics, but is limited to combined-cycle, power generation systems using gas and steam turbines.

This Code defines the boundaries of the overall IGCC power plant to encompass three major plant sections — the air separation unit (ASU, for oxygen-blown gasifiers or plants that use nitrogen), the gasification process (including gas cleanup), and the power block. Tests conducted by this Code determine the quantity and quality of fuel gas by its flow rate, temperature, pressure, composition, heating value, and its content of contaminants.


Create a new American National Standard (ANS): ASME/ANS RA-S-1.4 - 20XX, Probabilistic Risk Assessment Standard for Advanced NonLight Water Reactor Nuclear Power Plants

$0

Oliver Martinez 12/15/20
Requirements for probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) used to support risk-informed decisions for advanced non-light water reactor (non-LWR) nuclear power plants
(NPPs) and prescribes a method for applying these requirements for specific applications.
