ASME has been defining piping safety since 1922.

ASME B31.4 prescribes requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, testing, operation, and maintenance of liquid pipeline systems between production fields or facilities, tank farms, above- or belowground storage facilities, natural gas processing plants, refineries, pump stations, ammonia plants, terminals (marine, rail, and truck), and other delivery and receiving points, as well as pipelines transporting liquids within pump stations, tank farms, and terminals associated with liquid pipeline systems. This Code also prescribes requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, testing, operation, and maintenance of piping transporting aqueous slurries of nonhazardous materials such as coal, mineral ores, concentrates, and other solid materials, between a slurry processing plant or terminal and a receiving plant or terminal.

Piping here consists of pipe, flanges, bolting, gaskets, valves, relief devices, fittings, and the pressure containing parts of other piping components. It also includes hangers and supports, and other equipment items necessary to prevent overstressing the pressure containing parts. It does not include support structures such as frames of buildings, stanchions, or foundations, or any equipment

Also included within the scope of this Code are:

(a) primary and associated auxiliary liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping at pipeline terminals (marine, rail, and truck), tank farms, pump stations, pressure-reducing stations, and metering stations, including scraper traps, strainers, and prover loops

(b) storage and working tanks, including pipe-type storage fabricated from pipe and fittings, and piping interconnecting these facilities

(c) liquid petroleum and liquid anhydrous ammonia piping located on property that has been set aside for such piping within petroleum refinery, natural gasoline, gas processing, ammonia, and bulk plants

(d) those aspects of operation and maintenance of liquid pipeline systems relating to the safety and protection of the general public, operating company personnel, environment, property, and the piping systems

to this revision include a revised scope and updates to the stress section in Chapter II. A new paragraph has been added in Chapter III for material requirements in low-temperature applications. In addition, changes have been included throughout to reference minimum wall thickness requirements as permitted by manufacturing specifications.

, while achieving the operational, cost and safety benefits to be gained from the many industry best-practices detailed within these volumes.

Intended for liquid pipeline designers, owners, regulators, inspectors, and manufacturers. Primary industries served include those for carbon dioxide, liquid alcohol, liquid anhydrous ammonia, and liquid petroleum products.

This Standard establishes requirements and references documents applicable to the preparation and revision of digital product definition data, hereafter referred to as data sets. This Standard defines exceptions and additional requirements to existing ASME standards for using digital product definition data set(s) or drawing graphic sheet(s) in digital format, hereafter referred to as drawing graphic sheet(s). When no exception or additional requirements are stated, existing ASME standards shall apply. It is essential that this Standard be used in close conjunction with ASME Y14.24, ASME Y14.34, ASME Y14.35, and ASME Y14.100.

This document is the ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 3 example problem manual. The example problems in this manual follow the calculation procedures in ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 3.

ASME B&PV Code, Section VIII, Division 3 contains mandatory requirements, specific prohibitions, and non-mandatory guidance for the design, materials, fabrication, examination, inspection, testing, and certification of high pressure vessels and their associated pressure relief devices. This manual is based on the 2019 edition of the code.

The bolted flange joint assembly (BFJA) guidelines described in this document apply to pressure-boundary flanged joints with ring-type gaskets that are entirely within the circle enclosed by the bolt holes and with no contact outside the circle. By selection of those features suitable to the specific service or need, these guidelines may be used to develop effective joint assembly procedures for the broad range of sizes and service conditions normally encountered in industry. Guidance on troubleshooting BFJAs not providing leak-tight performance is also provided in this document (Appendix P).

PCC-1-2013 replaces the first edition, published in 2000.

These guidelines are unique in the world for addressing issues with the assembly of pressure vessel and piping bolted joints from a standards perspective. They address subsequent advances in gasket technology, bolting assembly procedures, and calculation methods that have enabled the improvement of both the integrity and efficiency of bolted-joint assembly.

PCC-1-2013 assembles current industry best practice into one easily-referenced location. Appendix A, ?Training and Qualification of Bolted Joint Assemblers?, for example, provides guidelines for establishing uniform criteria for training and qualifying bolted joint assembly personnel, as well as guidelines for quality control of the program. In addition, Appendix F, ?Alternative Flange Bolt Assembly Patterns?, adds faster methods of assembly that will achieve equal or better joint integrity than legacy methods. Applying such lessons learned could offer significant benefits in BFJA safety, efficiency and cost-reduction.

Intended for assemblers, designers, supervisors, inspectors and instructors in all industries that employ pressure boundary bolted flange joints.

This Standard covers anti-siphon fill valves intended to be installed in water closet tanks.

(a) This Standard establishes performance requirements for hand chain manually operated chain hoists for vertical lifting service involving material handling of freely suspended (unguided) loads, using welded link type load chain as a lifting medium, with one of the following types of suspension:
(1) hook or clevis
(2) trolley

(b) This Standard is applicable to hoists manufactured after the date on which this Standard is issued. Differential pulley and self-locking worm drive type hoists are not covered in this Standard.

(c) This Standard is not applicable to
(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 load chain
(6) hoists used in applications where the load on the hand chain hoist is not freely suspended from the hand chain hoist

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, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance, and operation.

This Standard establishes the definition of composite parts that are not covered within the existing ASME Y14 series of Standards on geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T). ASME Y14.37 defines exceptions and additional requirements to existing ASME standards for defining composite parts. Composite parts as addressed by this standard are inseparable assemblies of composite materials that may include non-composite material(s). When no exception or additional requirements are stated, existing ASME Standards shall apply.

ASME Y14.37:
  • Enables engineering practices for the definition of composite parts.
  • Offers flexibility in implementation and can be tailored to meet any specific need.
  • Affords common engineering delineation standards to aid the increasing interchange of drawing among industry, government, and other users.
