The principles and processes are applicable to all pipeline systems. This Standard is specifically designed to provide the operator (as defined in section 13) with the information necessary to develop and implement an effective integrity management program utilizing proven industry practices and processes. The processes and approaches within this Standard are applicable to the entire pipeline system. B31.9 - 1996 - Building Services Piping This Code Section has rules for the piping in industrial, institutional, commercial and public buildings, and multi-unit residences, which does not require the range of sizes, pressures, and temperatures covered in B31.1. This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, installation, inspection, examination and testing of piping systems for building services. It includes piping systems in the building or within the property limits. B31.11 - 2002 - Slurry Transportation Piping Systems Rule for design, construction, inspection and security requirements of slurry piping systems. This code covers piping systems that transport aqueous slurries of no hazardous materials, such as coal, mineral ores and other solids between a slurry processing plant and the receiving plant. B31G - 1991 - Manual for Determining Remaining Strength of Corroded Pipelines The scope of this Manual includes all pipelines within the scope of the pipeline codes that are part of ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping, ASME B31.4, Liquid Transportation Systems for Hydrocarbons, Liquid Petroleum Gas, Anhydrous Ammonia, and Alcohols; ASME B31.8, Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems; and ASME B31.11, Slurry Transportation Piping Systems.

Once any ASME Stamped Pressure Vessel is manufactured, it is checked, tested and approved by the ASME Authorized Inspector, who review all the procedures and all the documentation and sign the Data Report Form before to procedure to Stamp the name plate with the “U” or “UM” symbols, which means that the Pressure Vessel fully complies with the ASME Code rules for construction of Pressure Vessels. The National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel Inspectors uses the “NB” Symbol as well the “R” Symbol to repair or to alter any previous Stamped Pressure Vessel. All material used in manufacture must be documented. All welders must be certified. Manufacturers have an Authorized Inspector, who is the judge of code acceptability. The quality of weld is then checked for lack of weld penetration, slag inclusion, overlap and excessive reinforcement. At the final inspection the units are hydrostatically tested at 1.5 times working pressure and observed for leaks. 1.4 – Imperial and Metric Values: Professionals and students should be well versed in conversion practice. Many US customary unit values presented in the ASME codes do not convert directly into metric values in the ASME editions.

2.0 – SECTION I & SECTION VIII – Fundamentals: The formulae in ASME Section I and Section VIII are used to determine the minimum required thickness and design pressure of piping, tubes, drums and headers using the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP). However, Paragraph UG-31 states, that these formulae may be also used for calculating wall thickness of tubes and pipes under internal pressure. 2.1 – Design: The ASME Boiler Code Section I, as well as Section VIII, requires longitudinal and circumferential butt joints to be examined by full radiograph. When the vessel design is required fully radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joint, the cylindrical shell will have a joint efficiency factor (E) of 1.0. This factor corresponds to a safety factor (or material quality factor) of 3.5 in the parent metal. When the vessel design is required non radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joints the vessel will have a joint efficiency factor (E) of 0.7, which corresponds to a safety factor of 0.5 in., resulting in an increase of 43% in the thickness of the plates. 2.2 – Pressure Vessels Maximum Allowable Stress Values The maximum allowable stress values to be used in the calculation of the vessel’s wall thickness are given in the ASME Code for many different materials. These stress values are a function of temperature. Maximum Allowable Stress Value for Common Steels Material

Division 1 governs the design by Rules, is less stringent from the standpoint of certain design details and inspection procedures, and thus incorporates a higher safety factor of 4. For example, if a 60,000 psi tensile strength material is used, the Maximum Allowable Stress Value is 15,000 psi. Division 2 governs the design by Analysis and incorporates a lower safety factor of 3. Thus, the maximum allowable stress value for a 60,000 psi tensile strength material will become 20,000 psi. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Many companies require that all their pressure vessels be constructed in accordance with Division 2 because of the more exacting standards. Others find that they can purchase less expensive vessels by allowing manufacturers the choice of either Division 1 or Division 2. Normally, manufacturers will choose Division 1 for low-pressure vessels and Division 2 for highpressure vessels. The maximum allowable stress values at normal temperature range for the steel plates most commonly used in the fabrication of pressure vessels are given in Table above. 3.0 – ASME SECTION I Power Boilers – Types, Design, Fabrication, Inspection & Repair Provides requirements for construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high temperature water boilers used in stationary service; and power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service. Rules allow the use of the V, A, M, PP, S and E symbol stamps. The rules are applicable to boilers in which steam is generated at pressures exceeding 15 psig, and high temperature water boilers for operation at pressures exceeding 160 psig and/or temperatures exceeding 250 °F. This code covers power boiler superheaters, economizers, and other pressure parts connected directly to the boiler without intervening valves are considered as part of the scope of Section 1. 3.1 – SECTION I – Boiler Tubes up to and including 5 inches O.D. (125 mm): 4. To calculate the minimum required thickness, according to paragraph PG-27.2.1, use equation below:

b) To calculate the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP):

Where: t = Minimum Design Wall Thickness (in) P = Design Pressure (psi) D = Tube Outside Diameter (in) e = Thickness Factor (0.04 for expanded tubes; 0 = for strength welded tubes) S = Maximum Allowable Stress According to ASME Section II, Table 1A Example 1 - Boiler Tube: Calculate the minimum required wall thickness of a water tube boiler 2.75 in O.D., strength welded (e = 0) into place in a boiler. The tube has an average wall temperature of 650°F. The Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) is 580 psi gauge. Material is carbon steel SA-192. Note: Before starting calculations check the correct stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A: SA-192 = 11,800 psi – allowable stress – Div. 1. Solution: ©2012 Jurandir Primo

+ 0.005 (2.75) + 0

t = 0.079 in. Note: Where the manufacturing process produces only standard plate thickness, so should be used 1/8 in (3.2 mm) minimum. 3.2 – SECTION I – Piping, Drums, and Headers: The following formulae are found in ASME Section I, paragraph PG-27.2.2. The information for piping, drums, or headers may be given with either the inside I or outside (D) measurement. 4. Using the outside diameter:

b) Using the inside radius:

Calculate the required minimum thickness of a seamless steam piping which carries steam at a pressure of 900 psi gauge and a temperature of 700°F. The piping is 10.77 in O.D., (10 inches nominal) plain end; the material is SA-335 – P1, alloy steel. Allow a manufacturer’s tolerance allowance of 12.5%. Note: Before starting calculations check the material stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A: SA-335 – P1 = 13,800 psi – allowable stress – Div.1. Use equation 2.1:

P = [900 psi] D = [10.77 in] C=0 S = [13,800] – (SA-335 – P1 alloy steel at 700°F) E = 1.0 y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) t=

900 x 10.77………. + 0 = 2(13,800)(1.0) + 2(0.4)(900)

t = 0.34 in. Therefore, including a manufacturer’s allowance of 12.5%; - 0.34 × 1.125 = 0.38 in. Example 3 – Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP): Calculate the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) for a seamless steel pipe of material SA209-T1. The outside pipe diameter is 12.75 in. (nominal diam. 12 in.) with a wall thickness of 0.46 in. The operating temperature is 850°F. The pipe is plain ended. D = 12.75 in (outside diameter) t = 0.46 in C = 0 (3 to 4 inches nominal and larger) S = 13,100 psi (Section II, Table 1A, Div.1, SA-209-T1 at 850°F) E = 1.0 (seamless pipe as per PG-9.1) y = 0.4 (austenitic steel at 850°F) Use equation 2.2: P=

2SE (t – C) = D – (2y) (t – C)

P = 2 (13,100) (1.0) x (0.46 – 0) = 12.75 – (2 x 0.4) (0.46 – 0) P = 26,200 x 0.46 = 12.75 – 0.368 P = 973 psi Example 4 – Welded Tube Boiler Drum:

A welded water tube boiler drum of SA-515-60 material is fabricated to an inside radius of 18.70 in. on the tube sheet and 19.68 in on the drum. The plate thickness of the tube sheet and drum are 2.34 in. and 1.49 in., respectively. The longitudinal joint efficiency is 100%, and the ligament efficiencies are 56% horizontal and 30% circumferential. The operating temperature is not to exceed 500°F. Determine the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) based on: Welded Water Tube Boiler Drum: DRUM & TUBESHEET

Note: This is a common example of a water tube drum fabricated from two plates of different thickness. Thicker material is required where the boiler tubes enter the drum than is required for a plain drum. This example has two parts: a) The drum – consider the drum to be plain with no penetrations. b) The tube sheet – consider the drum to have penetrations for boiler tubes. (a) Drum. Use equation 2.4 (inside radius R):

SE (t - C) Drum P = R + (1 - y) (t - C) Where: S = 15,000 psi (Section II, Table 1A, Div.1, SA-515-60 at 500°F) E = 1.0 t = 1.49 in C=0 R = 19.68 in y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) Drum – P = (15,000) (1.0) (1.49 – 0).. = 19.68 + (1 – 0.4) (1.49 – 0) Drum – P = 15,000 x 1.49 19.68 + 0.894 Drum – P = 1,086 psi (b) Tube Sheet.

This shows that the “simple use” of equation (1.3) is accurate over a wide range of R/t ratios. 5.0 – SECTION I: Dished Heads Formulae: Flanged and dished heads can be formed from carbon steel, stainless steel, and other ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys. Flanged and dished heads can be formed in a size range from 4 in to 300 in diameter and in thickness range of 14 Gauge to 1-1/2” thick. Pressure vessel heads and dished ends are essentially the same – the end caps of a pressure vessel tank or an industrial boiler. They are supplied with a flanged edge to make it easier for the fabricator to weld the head to the main body of the tank. Dished heads can be manufactured using a combination of processes, spinning & flanging, where the spherical radius is made via the spinning process and the knuckle is created under the flanging method. 5.1 – Blank, Unstayed Dished Heads: Paragraph PG-29.1 states that the thickness of a blank, unstayed dished head with the pressure on the concave side, when it is a segment of a sphere, shall be calculated by the following formula:

Where: t = Minimum thickness of head (in) P = maximum allowable working pressure (psi) L = Concave side radius (in) S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi)

Paragraph PG-29.2 states: “The radius to which the head is dished shall be not greater than the outside diameter of the flanged portion of the head. Where two radii are used, the longer shall be taken as the value of L in the formula.” Example 9 – Segment of a Spherical Dished Head: Calculate the thickness of a seamless, blank unstayed dished head having pressure on the concave side. The head has an inside diameter of 42.7 in. with a dish radius of 36.0 in. The Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) is 360 psi and the material is SA-285 A. The temperature does not exceed 480°F. State if this thickness meets Code. Solution: Use equation 1.11

P = 360 psi L = 36.0 in S = 11,300 psi – SA-285 A at 480°F t = 5 (360 x 36) = 4.8 (11,300) t = 1.19 in. PG-29.6 states: “No head, except a full-hemispherical head, shall be of a lesser thickness than that required for a seamless shell of the same diameter.” Then, the minimum thickness of piping is:

Where: P = 360 psi D = 42.7 in y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) E = 1.0 (welded) t=

360 x 42.7 = 2(11,300)(1.0) + 2 (0.4)(360)

t = 0.67 in. Therefore, the calculated head thickness meets the code requirements, since 1.19 > 0.67. Example 10 - Segment of a Spherical Dished Head with a Flanged-in Manhole: Calculate the thickness of a seamless, unstayed dished head with pressure on the concave side, having a flanged-in manhole 6.0 in x 16 in. Diameter head is 47.5 in with a dish radius of 45 in. The MAWP is 225 psi, the material is SA-285-C, and temperature does not exceed 428°F. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

First thing to check: is the radius of the dish at least 80% of the diameter of the shell? Dish Radius = 45 Shell Diameter 47.5 0.947 > 0.8 - The radius of the dish meets the criteria. Then, use equation 1.11:

P = 225 psi L = 45 in S = 13,800 psi (450°F - use the next higher temperature). t = 5 (225 x 45) = 4.8 (13,800) t = 0.764 in. This thickness is for a blank head. PG-29.3 requires this thickness to be increased by 15% or 0.125 in., whichever is greater. As 0.764 × 0.15 = 0.114 in., that is less than 0.125 in., then, the thickness must be increased by 0.125 in. Then, the required head thickness is, t = 0.764 + 0.125 = ~0.90 in. 5.2 - Seamless or Full-Hemispherical Head: The thickness of a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head with the pressure on the concave side shall be calculated by the following formula:

t = Minimum thickness of head (in) P = Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (psi) L = Radius to which the head was formed (in) S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi) The above formula shall not be used when the required thickness of the head given by the formula exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius. Instead, use the following formula:

Example 11 - Seamless or Full-Hemispherical Head: Calculate the minimum required thickness for a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head. The radius to which the head is dished is 7.5 in. The MAWP is 900 psi and the head material is SA 285-C. The average temperature of the header is 570°F. Solution: Use equation 1.13. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Page 18 of 53

www.PDHcenter.com

PDHonline Course M398

www.PDHonline.org

P = 900 psi L = 7.5 in. S = 13,800 psi - (SA 285-C at 600°F). t=

900 x 7.5 = 2 (13,800) – 0.2 (900)

t = 0.24 in. Check if this thickness exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius = 7.5 x 0.356 = 2.67 in. It does not exceed 35.6%, therefore the calculated thickness of the head meets the code requirements. 6.0 - SECTION VIII-1: Dished Heads Formulae: The Section VIII-1 determines the rules for dished heads. The most common configurations are spherical, hemispherical, elliptical (or ellipsoidal) and torispherical shapes. How the shapes are, make some confusion for beginners and even professionals users of ASME VIII. To cast a little light on these subjects see the resume below:

Example 12 - Spherical or Hemispherical Head: A pressure vessel is built of SA-516-70 material and has an inside diameter of 96 in. The internal design pressure is 100 psi at 450°F. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in. and joint efficiency is E = 0.85. Calculate the required thickness of the hemispherical head if “S” is 20,000 psi? Solution: Since 0.665SE > P = 11305 psi > 100 psi, use equation 2.1. The inside radius in a corroded condition is equal to, R = 48 + 0.125 = 48.125 in. t= t=

PR = 2SE – 0.2P = 100 x 48.125 2(20,000) (0.85) – 0.2(100)

t = 0.14 in. Example: Spherical Shell: A spherical pressure vessel with an internal diameter of 120 in has a head thickness of 1 in. Determine the design pressure if the allowable stress is 16300 psi. Assume joint efficiency E = 0.85. No corrosion allowance is stated to the design pressure. Solution: Since t < 0.356R use equation 2.2. P=

2SEt = R + 0.2t

P = 2(16,300)(0.85)(1) = 60 + 0.2(1) P = 460 psi The calculated pressure 460 psi is < 0.665SE (9213 psi); therefore, equation 2.2 is acceptable. Example 13 - Thick Hemispherical Head: ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Calculate the required hemispherical head thickness of an accumulator with P = 10,000 psi, R = 18.0 in, S = 15,000 psi, and E = 1.0. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in. Solution: As 0.665SE < P = 9975 psi < 10,000 psi, use equation 2.3.

Y = 2(15,000)(1.0) + 10,000 = 2(15,000)(1.0) – 10,000 Y = 40,000 = 2 20,000 t = R (Y1/3 – 1) = (18.0) (21/3 – 1) + 0,125 = 4.8 in. 6.2 – Elliptical or Ellipsoidal Heads: The commonly used semi-ellipsoidal head has a ratio of base radius to depth of 2:1 (shown in Fig. 2a). The actual shape can be approximated by a spherical radius of 0.9D and a knuckle radius of 0.17D. The required thickness of 2:1 heads with pressure on the concave side is given below: Semi-Elliptical or Semi-Ellipsoidal Heads – 2:1:

6.3 - Torispherical Heads: Shallow heads, commonly referred to as flanged and dished heads (F&D heads), are according to paragraph UG-32 (e), with a spherical radius L of 1.0D and a knuckle radius r of 0.06D. •

a) Flanged & Dished Head (F&D heads):

The dish radius of a Flanged and Dished Head is 1.0 D and the knuckle radius is 0.06% D. The required thickness of a Torispherical F&D Head with r/L = 0.06 and L = Di, is:

and

P = Pressure on the concave side of the head S = Allowable stress t = Thickness of the head L = Inside spherical radius E = Joint efficiency factor Example 15 - Torispherical Heads: A drum is to operate at 500°F and 350 psi and to hold 5000 gallons of water. The inside radius of the Dished Torispherical Heads is 78 in. The material is SA 285 Grade A. Assume “S” = 11,200 psi and “E” = 0.85. Solution: Dished Torispherical Heads with L = Di and r/L = 0.06, use equation 2.7. t = 0.885 PL = SE – 0.1P t=

0.885 (350) (78) = (11200)(0.85) – 0.1(350)

t = 2.54 in. •

b) Non Standard 80-10 Flanged & Dished Head:

On an 80-10 the inside radius (L) is 0.8 Di and the knuckle radius (ri) is 10% of the head diameter. For the required thickness of a Non Standard 80-10 Head, use equations 2.7 and 2.8. Designing 80-10 Torispherical Heads rather than standard shapes can be achieved by lowering the material costs. The 80-10 is typically only 66% the thickness of the standard Torispherical Heads.

The principles and processes are applicable to all pipeline systems. This Standard is specifically designed to provide the operator (as defined in section 13) with the information necessary to develop and implement an effective integrity management program utilizing proven industry practices and processes. The processes and approaches within this Standard are applicable to the entire pipeline system. B31.9 - 1996 - Building Services Piping This Code Section has rules for the piping in industrial, institutional, commercial and public buildings, and multi-unit residences, which does not require the range of sizes, pressures, and temperatures covered in B31.1. This Code prescribes requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, installation, inspection, examination and testing of piping systems for building services. It includes piping systems in the building or within the property limits. B31.11 - 2002 - Slurry Transportation Piping Systems Rule for design, construction, inspection and security requirements of slurry piping systems. This code covers piping systems that transport aqueous slurries of no hazardous materials, such as coal, mineral ores and other solids between a slurry processing plant and the receiving plant. B31G - 1991 - Manual for Determining Remaining Strength of Corroded Pipelines The scope of this Manual includes all pipelines within the scope of the pipeline codes that are part of ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping, ASME B31.4, Liquid Transportation Systems for Hydrocarbons, Liquid Petroleum Gas, Anhydrous Ammonia, and Alcohols; ASME B31.8, Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems; and ASME B31.11, Slurry Transportation Piping Systems.

Once any ASME Stamped Pressure Vessel is manufactured, it is checked, tested and approved by the ASME Authorized Inspector, who review all the procedures and all the documentation and sign the Data Report Form before to procedure to Stamp the name plate with the “U” or “UM” symbols, which means that the Pressure Vessel fully complies with the ASME Code rules for construction of Pressure Vessels. The National Board of Boiler & Pressure Vessel Inspectors uses the “NB” Symbol as well the “R” Symbol to repair or to alter any previous Stamped Pressure Vessel. All material used in manufacture must be documented. All welders must be certified. Manufacturers have an Authorized Inspector, who is the judge of code acceptability. The quality of weld is then checked for lack of weld penetration, slag inclusion, overlap and excessive reinforcement. At the final inspection the units are hydrostatically tested at 1.5 times working pressure and observed for leaks. 1.4 – Imperial and Metric Values: Professionals and students should be well versed in conversion practice. Many US customary unit values presented in the ASME codes do not convert directly into metric values in the ASME editions.

2.0 – SECTION I & SECTION VIII – Fundamentals: The formulae in ASME Section I and Section VIII are used to determine the minimum required thickness and design pressure of piping, tubes, drums and headers using the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP). However, Paragraph UG-31 states, that these formulae may be also used for calculating wall thickness of tubes and pipes under internal pressure. 2.1 – Design: The ASME Boiler Code Section I, as well as Section VIII, requires longitudinal and circumferential butt joints to be examined by full radiograph. When the vessel design is required fully radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joint, the cylindrical shell will have a joint efficiency factor (E) of 1.0. This factor corresponds to a safety factor (or material quality factor) of 3.5 in the parent metal. When the vessel design is required non radiographed longitudinal butt-welded joints the vessel will have a joint efficiency factor (E) of 0.7, which corresponds to a safety factor of 0.5 in., resulting in an increase of 43% in the thickness of the plates. 2.2 – Pressure Vessels Maximum Allowable Stress Values The maximum allowable stress values to be used in the calculation of the vessel’s wall thickness are given in the ASME Code for many different materials. These stress values are a function of temperature. Maximum Allowable Stress Value for Common Steels Material

Division 1 governs the design by Rules, is less stringent from the standpoint of certain design details and inspection procedures, and thus incorporates a higher safety factor of 4. For example, if a 60,000 psi tensile strength material is used, the Maximum Allowable Stress Value is 15,000 psi. Division 2 governs the design by Analysis and incorporates a lower safety factor of 3. Thus, the maximum allowable stress value for a 60,000 psi tensile strength material will become 20,000 psi. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Many companies require that all their pressure vessels be constructed in accordance with Division 2 because of the more exacting standards. Others find that they can purchase less expensive vessels by allowing manufacturers the choice of either Division 1 or Division 2. Normally, manufacturers will choose Division 1 for low-pressure vessels and Division 2 for highpressure vessels. The maximum allowable stress values at normal temperature range for the steel plates most commonly used in the fabrication of pressure vessels are given in Table above. 3.0 – ASME SECTION I Power Boilers – Types, Design, Fabrication, Inspection & Repair Provides requirements for construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high temperature water boilers used in stationary service; and power boilers used in locomotive, portable, and traction service. Rules allow the use of the V, A, M, PP, S and E symbol stamps. The rules are applicable to boilers in which steam is generated at pressures exceeding 15 psig, and high temperature water boilers for operation at pressures exceeding 160 psig and/or temperatures exceeding 250 °F. This code covers power boiler superheaters, economizers, and other pressure parts connected directly to the boiler without intervening valves are considered as part of the scope of Section 1. 3.1 – SECTION I – Boiler Tubes up to and including 5 inches O.D. (125 mm): 4. To calculate the minimum required thickness, according to paragraph PG-27.2.1, use equation below:

b) To calculate the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP):

Where: t = Minimum Design Wall Thickness (in) P = Design Pressure (psi) D = Tube Outside Diameter (in) e = Thickness Factor (0.04 for expanded tubes; 0 = for strength welded tubes) S = Maximum Allowable Stress According to ASME Section II, Table 1A Example 1 - Boiler Tube: Calculate the minimum required wall thickness of a water tube boiler 2.75 in O.D., strength welded (e = 0) into place in a boiler. The tube has an average wall temperature of 650°F. The Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) is 580 psi gauge. Material is carbon steel SA-192. Note: Before starting calculations check the correct stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A: SA-192 = 11,800 psi – allowable stress – Div. 1. Solution: ©2012 Jurandir Primo

For tubing up to and including 5 in O.D., use equation 1.1 above. P = [580 psi] D = [2.75 in] e = 0 (strength welded) S = [11,800 psi] at [650°F]) t=

2.75 x 580 2 (11,800) + 580

+ 0.005 (2.75) + 0

t = 0.079 in. Note: Where the manufacturing process produces only standard plate thickness, so should be used 1/8 in (3.2 mm) minimum. 3.2 – SECTION I – Piping, Drums, and Headers: The following formulae are found in ASME Section I, paragraph PG-27.2.2. The information for piping, drums, or headers may be given with either the inside I or outside (D) measurement. 4. Using the outside diameter:

b) Using the inside radius:

Where: t = Minimum Design Wall Thickness (in) P = Design Pressure (psi) D = Tube Outside Diameter (in) R = Tube Radius (in) E = Tube Welding Factor (1.0 for seamless pipe; 0.85 = for welded pipe) y = Wall Thickness Welding Factor (0.4 for 900°F & lower; 0.7 for 950°F & up) C = Corrosion Allowance (0 for no corrosion; 0.0625 in. commonly used; 0.125 in. maximum) S = Maximum Allowable Stress According to ASME Section II, Table 1A Example 2 – Steam Piping:

Calculate the required minimum thickness of a seamless steam piping which carries steam at a pressure of 900 psi gauge and a temperature of 700°F. The piping is 10.77 in O.D., (10 inches nominal) plain end; the material is SA-335 – P1, alloy steel. Allow a manufacturer’s tolerance allowance of 12.5%. Note: Before starting calculations check the material stress table in ASME Section II, Table 1A: SA-335 – P1 = 13,800 psi – allowable stress – Div.1. Use equation 2.1:

P = [900 psi] D = [10.77 in] C=0 S = [13,800] – (SA-335 – P1 alloy steel at 700°F) E = 1.0 y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) t=

900 x 10.77………. + 0 = 2(13,800)(1.0) + 2(0.4)(900)

t = 0.34 in. Therefore, including a manufacturer’s allowance of 12.5%; - 0.34 × 1.125 = 0.38 in. Example 3 – Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP): Calculate the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) for a seamless steel pipe of material SA209-T1. The outside pipe diameter is 12.75 in. (nominal diam. 12 in.) with a wall thickness of 0.46 in. The operating temperature is 850°F. The pipe is plain ended. D = 12.75 in (outside diameter) t = 0.46 in C = 0 (3 to 4 inches nominal and larger) S = 13,100 psi (Section II, Table 1A, Div.1, SA-209-T1 at 850°F) E = 1.0 (seamless pipe as per PG-9.1) y = 0.4 (austenitic steel at 850°F) Use equation 2.2: P=

2SE (t – C) = D – (2y) (t – C)

P = 2 (13,100) (1.0) x (0.46 – 0) = 12.75 – (2 x 0.4) (0.46 – 0) P = 26,200 x 0.46 = 12.75 – 0.368 P = 973 psi Example 4 – Welded Tube Boiler Drum:

A welded water tube boiler drum of SA-515-60 material is fabricated to an inside radius of 18.70 in. on the tube sheet and 19.68 in on the drum. The plate thickness of the tube sheet and drum are 2.34 in. and 1.49 in., respectively. The longitudinal joint efficiency is 100%, and the ligament efficiencies are 56% horizontal and 30% circumferential. The operating temperature is not to exceed 500°F. Determine the Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) based on: Welded Water Tube Boiler Drum: DRUM & TUBESHEET

Note: This is a common example of a water tube drum fabricated from two plates of different thickness. Thicker material is required where the boiler tubes enter the drum than is required for a plain drum. This example has two parts: a) The drum – consider the drum to be plain with no penetrations. b) The tube sheet – consider the drum to have penetrations for boiler tubes. (a) Drum. Use equation 2.4 (inside radius R):

SE (t - C) Drum P = R + (1 - y) (t - C) Where: S = 15,000 psi (Section II, Table 1A, Div.1, SA-515-60 at 500°F) E = 1.0 t = 1.49 in C=0 R = 19.68 in y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) Drum – P = (15,000) (1.0) (1.49 – 0).. = 19.68 + (1 – 0.4) (1.49 – 0) Drum – P = 15,000 x 1.49 19.68 + 0.894 Drum – P = 1,086 psi (b) Tube Sheet.

The formulae and allowable stresses presented in this sketch are only for Division 1, the main code. It contains mandatory and non-mandatory appendices detailing supplementary design criteria, nondestructive examination and inspection acceptance standards. Rules pertaining to the use of the U, UM and UV Code symbol stamps are also included. 4.1 – SECTION VIII – Thin Cylindrical Shells: The formulae in ASME Section VIII, Division 1, paragraph UG-27, used for calculating the wall thickness and design pressure of pressure vessels, are: a) Circumferential Stress (longitudinal welds): •

4.2 – SECTION VIII – Thick Cylindrical Shells: For internal pressures higher than 3,000 psi, special considerations must be given as specified in paragraph U-1 (d). As the ratio of t/R increases beyond 0.5, a more accurate equation is required to determine the thickness. The formulae in ASME Appendix 1, Supplementary Design Formulas used for calculating thick wall and design pressure, are: a) For longitudinal stress (longitudinal welds): When, P > 0.385SE:

It has an inside diameter of 96 in. and an internal design pressure of 1,000 psi at 450 F°. The corrosion allowance is 0.125 in., and joint efficiency is E = 0.85. Calculate the required thickness of the shell. SA-515-60 = 15,000 psi – allowable stress, ASME Section II, Table 1A, Div.1. Since P < 0.385SE (6,545 psi) as 1,000 psi < 6,545 psi, use equation 1.3: t=

t = 8.9 in. This shows that the “simple use” of equation (1.3) is accurate over a wide range of R/t ratios. 5.0 – SECTION I: Dished Heads Formulae: Flanged and dished heads can be formed from carbon steel, stainless steel, and other ferrous and nonferrous metals and alloys. Flanged and dished heads can be formed in a size range from 4 in to 300 in diameter and in thickness range of 14 Gauge to 1-1/2” thick. Pressure vessel heads and dished ends are essentially the same – the end caps of a pressure vessel tank or an industrial boiler. They are supplied with a flanged edge to make it easier for the fabricator to weld the head to the main body of the tank. Dished heads can be manufactured using a combination of processes, spinning & flanging, where the spherical radius is made via the spinning process and the knuckle is created under the flanging method. 5.1 – Blank, Unstayed Dished Heads: Paragraph PG-29.1 states that the thickness of a blank, unstayed dished head with the pressure on the concave side, when it is a segment of a sphere, shall be calculated by the following formula:

Where: t = Minimum thickness of head (in) P = maximum allowable working pressure (psi) L = Concave side radius (in) S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi)

Paragraph PG-29.2 states: “The radius to which the head is dished shall be not greater than the outside diameter of the flanged portion of the head. Where two radii are used, the longer shall be taken as the value of L in the formula.” Example 9 – Segment of a Spherical Dished Head: Calculate the thickness of a seamless, blank unstayed dished head having pressure on the concave side. The head has an inside diameter of 42.7 in. with a dish radius of 36.0 in. The Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) is 360 psi and the material is SA-285 A. The temperature does not exceed 480°F. State if this thickness meets Code. Solution: Use equation 1.11

P = 360 psi L = 36.0 in S = 11,300 psi – SA-285 A at 480°F t = 5 (360 x 36) = 4.8 (11,300) t = 1.19 in. PG-29.6 states: “No head, except a full-hemispherical head, shall be of a lesser thickness than that required for a seamless shell of the same diameter.” Then, the minimum thickness of piping is:

Where: P = 360 psi D = 42.7 in y = 0.4 (Ferritic steel less than 900°F) E = 1.0 (welded) t=

360 x 42.7 = 2(11,300)(1.0) + 2 (0.4)(360)

t = 0.67 in. Therefore, the calculated head thickness meets the code requirements, since 1.19 > 0.67. Example 10 - Segment of a Spherical Dished Head with a Flanged-in Manhole: Calculate the thickness of a seamless, unstayed dished head with pressure on the concave side, having a flanged-in manhole 6.0 in x 16 in. Diameter head is 47.5 in with a dish radius of 45 in. The MAWP is 225 psi, the material is SA-285-C, and temperature does not exceed 428°F. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

First thing to check: is the radius of the dish at least 80% of the diameter of the shell? Dish Radius = 45 Shell Diameter 47.5 0.947 > 0.8 - The radius of the dish meets the criteria. Then, use equation 1.11:

P = 225 psi L = 45 in S = 13,800 psi (450°F - use the next higher temperature). t = 5 (225 x 45) = 4.8 (13,800) t = 0.764 in. This thickness is for a blank head. PG-29.3 requires this thickness to be increased by 15% or 0.125 in., whichever is greater. As 0.764 × 0.15 = 0.114 in., that is less than 0.125 in., then, the thickness must be increased by 0.125 in. Then, the required head thickness is, t = 0.764 + 0.125 = ~0.90 in. 5.2 - Seamless or Full-Hemispherical Head: The thickness of a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head with the pressure on the concave side shall be calculated by the following formula:

t = Minimum thickness of head (in) P = Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (psi) L = Radius to which the head was formed (in) S = Maximum Allowable Working Stress (psi) The above formula shall not be used when the required thickness of the head given by the formula exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius. Instead, use the following formula:

Example 11 - Seamless or Full-Hemispherical Head: Calculate the minimum required thickness for a blank, unstayed, full-hemispherical head. The radius to which the head is dished is 7.5 in. The MAWP is 900 psi and the head material is SA 285-C. The average temperature of the header is 570°F. Solution: Use equation 1.13. ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Page 18 of 53

www.PDHcenter.com

PDHonline Course M398

www.PDHonline.org

P = 900 psi L = 7.5 in. S = 13,800 psi - (SA 285-C at 600°F). t=

900 x 7.5 = 2 (13,800) – 0.2 (900)

t = 0.24 in. Check if this thickness exceeds 35.6% of the inside radius = 7.5 x 0.356 = 2.67 in. It does not exceed 35.6%, therefore the calculated thickness of the head meets the code requirements. 6.0 - SECTION VIII-1: Dished Heads Formulae: The Section VIII-1 determines the rules for dished heads. The most common configurations are spherical, hemispherical, elliptical (or ellipsoidal) and torispherical shapes. How the shapes are, make some confusion for beginners and even professionals users of ASME VIII. To cast a little light on these subjects see the resume below:

Example 12 - Spherical or Hemispherical Head: A pressure vessel is built of SA-516-70 material and has an inside diameter of 96 in. The internal design pressure is 100 psi at 450°F. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in. and joint efficiency is E = 0.85. Calculate the required thickness of the hemispherical head if “S” is 20,000 psi? Solution: Since 0.665SE > P = 11305 psi > 100 psi, use equation 2.1. The inside radius in a corroded condition is equal to, R = 48 + 0.125 = 48.125 in. t= t=

PR = 2SE – 0.2P = 100 x 48.125 2(20,000) (0.85) – 0.2(100)

t = 0.14 in. Example: Spherical Shell: A spherical pressure vessel with an internal diameter of 120 in has a head thickness of 1 in. Determine the design pressure if the allowable stress is 16300 psi. Assume joint efficiency E = 0.85. No corrosion allowance is stated to the design pressure. Solution: Since t < 0.356R use equation 2.2. P=

2SEt = R + 0.2t

P = 2(16,300)(0.85)(1) = 60 + 0.2(1) P = 460 psi The calculated pressure 460 psi is < 0.665SE (9213 psi); therefore, equation 2.2 is acceptable. Example 13 - Thick Hemispherical Head: ©2012 Jurandir Primo

Calculate the required hemispherical head thickness of an accumulator with P = 10,000 psi, R = 18.0 in, S = 15,000 psi, and E = 1.0. Corrosion allowance is 0.125 in. Solution: As 0.665SE < P = 9975 psi < 10,000 psi, use equation 2.3.

Y = 2(15,000)(1.0) + 10,000 = 2(15,000)(1.0) – 10,000 Y = 40,000 = 2 20,000 t = R (Y1/3 – 1) = (18.0) (21/3 – 1) + 0,125 = 4.8 in. 6.2 – Elliptical or Ellipsoidal Heads: The commonly used semi-ellipsoidal head has a ratio of base radius to depth of 2:1 (shown in Fig. 2a). The actual shape can be approximated by a spherical radius of 0.9D and a knuckle radius of 0.17D. The required thickness of 2:1 heads with pressure on the concave side is given below: Semi-Elliptical or Semi-Ellipsoidal Heads – 2:1:

6.3 - Torispherical Heads: Shallow heads, commonly referred to as flanged and dished heads (F&D heads), are according to paragraph UG-32 (e), with a spherical radius L of 1.0D and a knuckle radius r of 0.06D. •

a) Flanged & Dished Head (F&D heads):

The dish radius of a Flanged and Dished Head is 1.0 D and the knuckle radius is 0.06% D. The required thickness of a Torispherical F&D Head with r/L = 0.06 and L = Di, is:

and

P = Pressure on the concave side of the head S = Allowable stress t = Thickness of the head L = Inside spherical radius E = Joint efficiency factor Example 15 - Torispherical Heads: A drum is to operate at 500°F and 350 psi and to hold 5000 gallons of water. The inside radius of the Dished Torispherical Heads is 78 in. The material is SA 285 Grade A. Assume “S” = 11,200 psi and “E” = 0.85. Solution: Dished Torispherical Heads with L = Di and r/L = 0.06, use equation 2.7. t = 0.885 PL = SE – 0.1P t=

0.885 (350) (78) = (11200)(0.85) – 0.1(350)

t = 2.54 in. •

b) Non Standard 80-10 Flanged & Dished Head:

On an 80-10 the inside radius (L) is 0.8 Di and the knuckle radius (ri) is 10% of the head diameter. For the required thickness of a Non Standard 80-10 Head, use equations 2.7 and 2.8. Designing 80-10 Torispherical Heads rather than standard shapes can be achieved by lowering the material costs. The 80-10 is typically only 66% the thickness of the standard Torispherical Heads.
