Sample text

Another key safety point is that a visual inspection of the vessel under pressure is not carried out at the test pressure. 3) before approaching the vessel for inspection. If it was a high-temperature test (> 120 8F, 48 8C), the temperature must also be allowed to reduce to this, before approaching the vessel. Once the pressure has been reduced, all joints and connections should be visually inspected. Note how this may be waived provided: . A leak test is carried out using a suitable gas. Agreement is reached between the inspector and manufacturer to carry out some other form of leak test.

This links in with the general philosophy of ASME VIII, requiring formal certification of companies who want to manufacture/repair ASME-stamped vessels. 56: re-rating The word re-rating appears frequently throughout API codes. Re-rating of the MAWP or MDMT (minimum design metal temperature) of pressure vessels is perfectly allowable under the requirements of API 510, as long as code compliance is maintained. In the USA, the API authorized inspector is responsible for re-rating a pressure vessel, once happy with the results of thickness checks, change of process conditions, etc.

If it was a high-temperature test (> 120 8F, 48 8C), the temperature must also be allowed to reduce to this, before approaching the vessel. Once the pressure has been reduced, all joints and connections should be visually inspected. Note how this may be waived provided: . A leak test is carried out using a suitable gas. Agreement is reached between the inspector and manufacturer to carry out some other form of leak test. Welds that cannot be visually inspected on completion of the vessel were given visual examination prior to assembly (may be the case with some kinds of internal welds).
