Pressure containing and Non pressure containing

Pressure containing and Non pressure containing

Pressure containing and Non pressure containing

(OP)
What is a pressure containing and what is a Non pressure containing part.
 Per API 6A 3.1.72 Pressure containing part is a part whose failure to function as intended result in a release of retained fluid to the atmosphere. But does not mention anything about Non pressure containing. Please suggest.

RE: Pressure containing and Non pressure containing

Would it not be a case of if the item does not meet the criteria for being classed as 'pressure containing' then it must be classed as 'non-pressure containing'?
