Material Selection for Gas skid

Material Selection for Gas skid

Material Selection for Gas skid


For a turbine gas supply station we have to meet design pressure of 100 barg at a temperature of 60 oC. Could someone advise on material selection for piping. Ase ASME B16.34 material group 1.1 materials sufficient?

RE: Material Selection for Gas skid

ASME B16.34 is for Valves, Flanged, Threaded, and Welding End.

The materials group 1.1 listed in this code is for carbon steel materials which "may" be acceptable in the appropriate pipe code.

however, it is best to investigate the scope diagrams in B31.8 or B31.3 for appropriate use.

my guess would be B31.8.
