2205 Heat Exchanger Tubesheet

2205 Heat Exchanger Tubesheet


If I have a shell and tube heat exchanger that has a non-welded (TEMA Type BEU) 2205 Duplex tubesheet, is impact testing required if the tubesheets is 1 1/2" thk?


RE: 2205 Heat Exchanger Tubesheet

Most likely, see UHA-51(d)(3)(a). What is the MDMT?



The problem with sloppy work is that the supply FAR EXCEEDS the demand

-20 F & over 3/8" thk, you are impact testing.
