A client wants to replace a 10" nozzle which is already in an insert plate with a new 10" Nozzle. According API 653 9.8, if you want to replace a nozzle you need to use an insert plate. The client doesn't want to remove the existing nozzle with the insert plate. Will it be allowed to remove only the nozzle and reinforcement plate to replace with a new nozzle and reinforcement plate? The material is group IV.
Thanks is advance :)
