Is their a Standard for Hydraulic or Pneumatic systems?

Is their a Standard for Hydraulic or Pneumatic systems?

Hi All,

I mainly come from a pressure vessel background where vessel are designed to conform with ASME Div 8 or PD5500. I was wondering if there is a similar standard for pressure systems either hydraulic or pneumatic?

Any information is greatly appreciated.


RE: Is their a Standard for Hydraulic or Pneumatic systems?

There are many. One example is ANSI B31.

It will depend on the industry, the service (fluid type/temperature/pressure), location, and Owner requirements.

RE: Is their a Standard for Hydraulic or Pneumatic systems?

See also NFPA, National Fluid Power Association.
