ASME SECTION VIII Plate materials:

http://www.inspection-for-industry.com/pressure-vessel-inspections.html a) ASME section II but with some restrictions which stated in ASME
Three Section : Code Sec VIII Div 1 in subsection C e.g. UCS, UHF, UNF.
ASME Section VIII Div. 1 => 3000 psi b) Identical with ASTM specification A 516/ A516M-90;
ASME Section VIII Div. 2 => Alternative rule 10000 psi Edition 1990 is very important
ASME Section VIII Div. 3 => Alternative rule > 10000 psi C) UG-10 in ASME Section VIII Div 1. Pare 57 of 2007 edition
For Non-ASME Material instead of ASME materials:
ASME Section VIII Div. 1: . Consistency with ASME Material
Stape-1: melting method, melting practices, de-oxidation, and heat treatment
Three Mandatory Non-mandatory Stape-2: chemical composition = within range
Subsections Appendices, Appendices. Stape-3: Mechanical test = No of test, size, result, Impact Test = code,
Sub section A =>UG (General requirement) Result, temperature as per SA 370.
Sub section B =>UW, UF, UB (Specific requirement for Fabrication) Stape-4: recertified Certified per UG-10.
Sub section C =>UCS, UNF, UHA, UCI, UCL, UCD, UHT, ULW,
and ULT (Specific requirement for MOC)
Other Requirement for Pressure Vessel Plate? Joint categories: UW-3, UW-11(a) (5) (b)
UG-93 in ASME Code Sec VIII Div 1 specifies requirements for plate Category A: All longitudinal welds in shell and nozzles, All welds in
material inspection. Based on this clause, only plate material is heads, Hemisph-head to shell weld joint
require to have a material test certificate(MTR).It means this Category B: All circumferential welds in shell and nozzles Head to
requirement only can be applied for plate material; for other material shell joint (other than Hemisph.)
such as pipe and flange, MTR's are not required and marking on the Category C and D: are flange welds and nozzle attachment welds
materials would be acceptable respectively
Longitudinal welds (Category A) are more critical than Circumferential
Plate Inspection: welds (Category B) because they are under double stress.
a) Visual inspection for surface defects also need to be done based RT 1: Items 1, 2 and 3, (E=1), All butt welds-full length radiography
on SA 20 specifications. RT 2: Item 4 (E=1), Category A and D butt welds full length radiog-
b) Marking on both side Punching & Stencilling. raphy and category B and C butt welds spot Radiography
c) In low thickness punching not required. RT 3: (E=0.85), Spot radiography butt welds
RT 4: (E=0.7), Partial / No radiography
4 steps for impact test exemption assessment: UG 84 (page 111) Pressure Vessel Heads:
Stap-1: UG-20 (f) => Ellipsoidal Head => Dished end Thk. = Shell Thk.
Stap-2: UCS-66(a) => H = D/4, knuckle radius = 0.17D, spherical radius = 0.9D.
Torispherical Head => Dished end Thk. = 1.77 x Shell Thk.
Stap-3:UCS-66(b) =>
H = D/4, knuckle radius = 0.06 crown radius, crown radius
Stap-4: UCS-68(c) =>
= OD of the head skirt.
Impact Test Code SA 370 / ISO 148.
Hemispherical Head => Dished end Thk. = 0.5 x Shell Thk., H = D/2
Summary of weld types:
Type 1: Full penetration welds (Typically Double welded) Template of checking profile of dished end to be verified
Type 2: Welds with backing strip Knuckle radius = 17 % ID, Crown radius = 90% ID,
Type 3: Single welded partial penetration welds Knuckle thickness > Crown thickness
Type 4, 5 and 6: Various Lap welds (rarely used)

b) ASME Code SEC VIII Div 1 has not specified Before pressure vessel hydro-static testing:
7. Nozzles and attachments elevation => => NDT of Weld Joints Clearance

Three Stage Pressurisation Difference Between the Design Formula of a Cylindrical Shell and
1st Stage => 40 % of Final Pr. and 5 min. hold a Spherical :
2nd Stage => 70 % of Final Pr. and 5 min. hold t = PR/ (SE-0.6P) for cylindrical shell
3rd Stage => 100 % of Final Pr. and 45 min. hold t = PR/ (2SE-0.2P) for the spherical shell
De-pressurise to Inspection Pr. = H T Pr. / 1.3 t = Thickness, R = Inside Radius, S = Allowable Stress, P =
Hydrostatic Test Pressure = 1.3 x MAWP X Stress Ratio Design Pressure and E = Joint Efficiency
Stress Ratio= (Allowable Stress at Test Temp.)/(Allowable
Stress at Design Temp.) Application and Advantage of a Spherical Pressure Vessel:
Vessel is immediately and carefully drained after the test and dried by air. a) Thickness 50% as compare to Cylindrical Shell.(more commercial)
=> Vessel MAWP => measured at top-most point. b) Longer place required for Cylindrical Shell
=> Measure at lowest of vessel part MAWPs, c) Spherical Vessel is used for big volume of liquid/gas
adjusted for hydrostatic head.
Disadvantage of a Spherical Pressure Vessel: Fabrication cost high
Hydrostatic pressure caused due to liquid with specific gravity = 1,
1ft of height = 0.43 psig. Or 1 mtr of height = 0.1 Bar
Materials are Stored in a Spherical Pressure? When and where PWHT is mandatory by code requirement?
For Cylindrical shell = Propane, Butane, N2, O2, NH3, H2 Conditions as per ASME Code Section 8 Div 1 =>
For Spherical shell = LNG & LPG 1) Requirement of UW-2(a), (c), (d)
2) UCS-56 when our nominal thickness exceeds a specific value, for
In-Service Insp. Requirements for Spherical Shell PV:
instance 38 mm for P No.1 material or 0 mm for P No.3 material.
a) as per API std 510
3) UNF-56, UHA-32, UHT-56 and etc.
b) Intervals not exceeding one half of the remaining life, or 10 years,
4) UCS-68(b) when our MDMT (Minimum Design Metal Tempera
whichever is less. ture) is below -55 Degree F.
c) RL = (Tc-Tmin)/CR ; How PWHT must be done?
When Tc = Actual Thickness, CR =corrosion rate. 1) UW-40 which detail to us the PHWT procedure.
Tmin = Minimum Required Thickness, Furnace PWHT, Loading Temp. shall not exceed 800F, heating
Tmin = nominal thickness - corrosion allowance, rate 400 deg F/hr/inch of thk., cooling rate 500F /hr/inch of thk.
Difference in the PWHT Process? 2) Still air cooling permitted below 800F. During soaking period, temp
For Cylindrical shell = in furnace 5ft lap difference between hottest and coldest part shall not exceed 150F.
For Spherical shell = one or more high velocity burners that are fired 3) Minimum overlap for PWHT in multiple heats is 5 ft.
into the vessel using the top or bottom man ways PWHT => 610C for CS
Normalising => 900 to 950C for CS
Solution annealing => 1150C for SS
