ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Good morning everyone.

I'am in a border line situation.

In july 2019 ,as you know, it was released the new edition of the ASME.

In august 2019 we recevide a new order with the customer that asks to design a pressure vessel with the latest edition of the ASME, and from that date we begin the engineering.

So that's my problem which ASME i have to consider to design the pressure vessel?

It's a strange situation i think that design with ASME ed. 2017 is good but i' am not sure, considering that customer asks also the code stamp.

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Does August 2019 come after July 2019 ?

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

The 2019 Edition is mandatory with any PO taken on/after January 1, 2020. The 2019 Edition is optional after issue July 1 2019 -December 31 2019

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Good Morning everyone,
The 2019 is not mandatory until January 1, 2020,until then you can use either one.

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Im with what A_clark said.

oknow; I wouldnt go for that route. Bear in mind that the time between quotations and PO's can be very large (in our business, sometimes up to 4-5 years). We put applicable code editions in our quotes, so quote date determines code edition. Vice versa wouldnt work, becuase with 1 or 2 new editions of a code, a quotation may become technically different (sure, no single quotation is valid for 4-5 years, but with tehcnical complex projects the technical basis is more determinant than the cost aspect).

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Tried to remove my previous post but too late.
My apologies to the OP for my unprofessional (and incorrect) response.

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

Resegone, best confirm with your customer what the expectations are.



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

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

The code says 2017 or 2019 is acceptable.
Your customer is requesting 2019.
Discuss your quandry with the customer.

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

XL83NL...my position is based on what an AIA's opinion, ASME Team Leader and ASME Staff have indicated. See Section VIII Div.1 Appendix-43-2(a)(1). We all know what ASME stands for.

RE: ASME 2017 or ASME 2019?

You may use Ed. 2017 for now, But if your MDR does not get signed before January 1, 2020, As per CL. 43-1 (b), critical changes in Ed. 2019 shall be considered by Manufacturer, and such changes shall be a matter of agreement between user and manufacturer.

Since there are Critical changes in Ed. 2019 (i.e. Flange De-rating calculation as per UG-44), You shall think of such situations at present Day!!!

In my opinion, one shall go with Ed. 2019

You're right, I guess. In Europe, ASME isnt mandated by law. Hence, looking at code editions is done from a different perspective. The perspective I posted is the one we most often see.
