Piping Materi al Class Description
1 Introduction
This document describes the minimum requirements for the piping material classes for the River
Protection Project - Waste Treatment Plant. It summarizes the piping material requirements for pipe,
fittings, flanges, valves, and all other piping components for each specific pipe class as applicable to
specific fluid service. The piping classes apply to bulk piping components and do not cover specialty
items identified on engineering data sheets.

3 Description
Appendix A summarizes the requirements in the piping material classes. Piping regulated under the
Dangerous Waste Permit is identified on permit drawings. All piping classes are shown in this document
for completeness. The following general guidelineshequirements are considered in the development of
the piping material classes.
3.1 Codes
The applicable design code(s) is as noted on the piping material class summary (Appendix A). Any
conflicts between this document and the applicable design codes shall be brought to the attention of the
RPP-WTP piping engineering group of the plant design discipline.
3.2 Pipe Wall Thickness and Branch Reinforcements
The specific pipe thickness or schedule number is supported by a wall thickness calculation and if
necessary, by a branch reinforcement calculation. Any increases in the design conditions used as the
basis of these piping class sheets must be supported by a revision to the wall thickness calculation or by
additional calculation.
The commercially available pipe wall thickness specified in the piping class sheets meet or exceed the
minimum calculated wall thickness.
Integrally reinforced branch connections do not require a separate calculation. The branch reinforcement
for all non-integrally reinforced shall be supported by a branch reinforcement calculation.
3.3 Design Conditions
The service limits and the corrosioderosion allowance referred to in the piping material class summary
are enveloping conditions. Pressures and temperatures listed shall not be exceeded except as permitted by
the applicable code.

Piping Mat eri al Class Description
3.4 Pipe
Nominal pipe sizes (NPS) !A, 1/, %, 1 !A, 2%, 3 %, 5 and 22, and any other nominal pipe size not shown in
ASME B36.10 / B36.19, should not be used except to match manufacturers equipment connections or as
specified on the P&IDs. Where necessary to match a manufacturers equipment connection, a transition
piece must be employed immediately adjacent to the equipment for the transition to the next acceptable
pipe size.
In general, all NPS 2 and larger pipe with a schedule of standard weight and heavier has been specified as
double random length and NPS 1 !hand smaller as single random length. The majority of pipe included in
these classes is multiple stamped.
Example:
(Seamless API-SL Gr. B, ASTM A106 Gr. B and A53 Gr. B, or ASTM A312 TP 304/304L or ASTM
A312 TP 316/316L).
For carbon steel material by ASME B31.3, Para./ Fig. 323.2.2, impact testing may be required.
Schedule 160 threaded pipe nipples for carbon steel and schedule 80s threaded pipe nipples for stainless
steel have been used to provide enhanced mechanical strength.
3.5 Flanges
NPS 24 and smaller steel flange dimensions and ratings are to ASME B 16.5.
NPS 26 through NPS 60 steel flange dimensions and ratings are to ASME B 16.47 Series A. However,
ASME B16.47 Series B may be used when needed to mate with existing equipment.
Flat faced flanges shall be used to match flat face equipment and other flat faced flanged components
(e.g., copper alloy, cast iron flanges, GRP flanges and for NPS 30 and larger flanges in large diameter
water lines).
Orifice flanges shall be in accordance with ASME B16.36 and shall be supplied in pairs, complete with
jackscrews, but without bolts, gaskets, or orifice plates. Quantities on bill of material, material
requisitions, etc., shall indicate sets, not individual flanges.
Blanks, either permanent of temporary are required to have sufficient thickness per the ASME B3 1.3
Code. Spectacle blinds in accordance with ASME B16.48 shall not be used as permanent blanks and
shall be used only where required to isolate line for pressure testing, start up or maintenance. Gasket
contact surface finishes shall be the same as the mating flanges.
3.6 Fittings
Buttweld fittings shall conform to the material requirements and wall thickness of the pipe with which
they are used.
The wall thickness of reducing tees, concentric and eccentric reducers shall correspond on each end to the
wall thickness of the mating pipe.
Half couplings shall not be used for branch connections in ASME B3 1.3 Piping Material Classes.
Elbolets shall be used only where specifically allowed per the piping assembly details.

Piping Mat eri al Class Description
3.7 Bolting and Gaskets
Machine bolts shall not be used except as jackscrews and when bolting Cast Iron, Bronze, Ductile Iron,
PVC, or Fiberglass flanges. J ackscrews shall be threaded full length. The length shall be measured from
the bearing surface of the head and shall include the end point.
Stud bolts shall be threaded full length. Length of stud bolts shall be in accordance with ASME B16.5 or
B 16.47 as applicable, and referenced in piping material class as a bolt table. Bolt tables do not include
increased lengths required for use with bolt tensioning and other non-standard components / equipment.
Cap screws are used where the valve or component design does not allow through bolts to be used for
every bolthole. Cap screws shall be threaded full length. The length shall be measured from the bearing
surface of the head and shall include the end point.
3.8 Valves
Valves specified to be drilled and tapped for drain connections, body cavity vents, etc., shall be supplied
with the tapped holes fitted with solid, square head pipe plugs of the same basic material as the valve
body, in accordance with ASME B 16.14.
If ball valves are required to be Fire Safe they shall be in accordance with API 607 and shall have anti-
static devices fitted in accordance with API 608.
Butterfly valves are used for positive shutoff in sizes 10 inch and larger. Wafer type butterfly valves have
been specified for in-line service based on lower total installed and operation cost (TIC).
Tapped lugged wafer type (e.g., butterfly, check, etc.) valves have been specified for dead end
application, and when fitted between cast iron or non-metallic flanges.
Unlined soft seated butterfly valves and plug valves, if required to be Fire Safe shall be in accordance
with API 607.
Typical gear operated valve sizes:
Gate Valves

Classes 600 and 900 NPS
Classes 1500 and 2500 NPS

Classes 600 and 900 NPS 6 & Larger
Classes 1500 and 2500 NPS 4 & Larger
Additionally, gear operators may be required on specific valves, to satisfy process, operational and/or
other requirements.
3.9 Method of Construction
Basically, the method of construction is as follows:
Shop fabricated carbon steel NPS 1 ?4 and smaller pipe are socket welded while NPS 2 and larger
are butt welded construction.
Shop fabricated stainless steel NPS 1 pipe and smaller are socket welded while NPS 1 ?4 and
larger are butt welded.
The small bore valves are socket welded up to size NPS 2 for both cases.
Field fabrication for carbon and stainless steel piping NPS 2 and smaller should be socket weld.
Certain piping material classes in this document are required to be all butt weld construction based on the
service requirements.
3.10 Branch Connection
The branch connection fittings are specified in the piping material class branch tables.
3.1 1 Corrosion Allowance
Corrosion allowance as used in pipe classes includes erosion. For pipe class W62F, 0.01 6" corrosion/
erosion allowance is used to match the interface piping.
3.12 Positive Material Identification (PMI)
