The various codes and standards may prescribe allowable tolerances for pipe-to-fitting thickness variances. The piping used here typically consists of pipe, flanges, bolting, gaskets, valves, relief devices, fittings and the pressure containing parts of other piping components.
IX, QW  to verify material compatibility.
A wide selection of winding materials is commercially available for a number of different fluids and applications. One of the primary aspects is to conform to the piping design standards and codes.
Schedule 80, and 4 to 6 in. Slip-on, socket-weld, and threaded-neck flanges should not be used in most high-pressure applications, especially for pipe larger than 3- to 4-in.
It is applicable for the design of chemical and petroleum plants and refineries processing chemicals and hydrocarbons, water and steam. Flat-face flanges are typically available only in low-pressure ANSI flanges and are not used in high-pressure applications.
It also recommends that 2-in. ASTM has specifications and grades for carbon-steel and alloy bolts and nuts for high-temperature, low-temperature, and extreme-service applications. RTJ flanges tend to seal better at higher pressures.
Also, these practices are a set of documents which are believed to be pertinent and a best engineering practice to implement especially for Refinery Piping Design.
Our expertise specifically covers the following piping systems: Material traceability is another important feature of standardization. Accurate planning and execution of the design and pipe routing also makes a big difference on controlling the total installed cost TIC.
The organizations that developed the standards also develop recommended practices which are adopted as best engineering practices industry-wide when designing the piping systems.
Spiral-wound gaskets, composed of a metal ring with wound internal composite rings, are typically used. The assigned P-numbers and group numbers are based essentially on comparable base-metal characteristics, such as: Raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals Petroleum products Gas, steam, air and water Fluidized solids Cryogenic fluids B NEDA Engineering strives to develop designs that are optimized for performance, ergonomics and accessibility.
NEDA Engineering is capable of designing according to these codes if required by the client. Table 11 illustrates the maximum, nonshock working pressures for Material Group 1.
However, a number of other commonly available steel specifications and grades for pipe, flanges, valves, and fittings are available for low-temperature service without special testing. Table 13 is an example branch-connection schedule that could be used to specify the proper choice of branch connection.Piping System Design.
In our design process we make use of the latest AutoCad Plant 3D software giving us the capabillity to create piping designs that meet requirements of any complexity efficiently. A key element in our design and engineering, is our CEASAR II analysis software for stress analysis and our AFT Fathom Software for hydraulic.
Selecting pipe wall thickness. The fluid flow equations and formulas presented thus far enable the engineer to initiate the design of a piping or pipeline system, where the pressure drop available governs the selection of pipe size.
Design and Analysis of a Process Plant Piping System Process Piping code which includes petroleum refineries, chemical plants, textile plants, paper plants and semiconductor plant.
The objective of this paper is to explain the basic concept of flexibility such as flexibility characteristics and In piping design, this factor is applied. A review of the current design approaches according to European (EN) and American (ASME B & B) standards is illustrated by using a typical refinery piping system as a case study.
The code that governs the design of piping systems for process plants is ASME B Process Piping. Piping engineers are responsible for interpreting the code using sound engineering judgment to ensure that the proposed design meets the code requirements.
The piping system here analysed belongs to a refinery, whose plant view is shown in Fig The supporting steel structure is composed by seven transverse moment resisting frames placed every 6 m, realized with commercial HEA/B steel profiles.Download
