ASME BPVC Section XIII - Rules for Overpressure Protection

ASME BPVC Section XIII - Rules for Overpressure Protection

ASME BPVC Section XIII - Rules for Overpressure Protection

(OP)
INFORMATION

ASME BPVC Section XIII - Rules for Overpressure Protection is due to be released 21st July 2021.

This new ASME BPVC will include requirements for Pressure Relief Devices from ASME I, III, IV, VIII & X

Has anyone got any information at this time, as to what will be different to what is current practice?

Per ISO-4126, only the term Safety Valve is used regardless of application or design.

RE: ASME BPVC Section XIII - Rules for Overpressure Protection

This is simply a organizational change of the code documents and not a substantive change to the requirements which were formerly contained in those individual codes.

UPDATE - COMMENTS FROM A NATIONAL BOARD PRD DIRECTOR ON LINKEDIN

"The first version of ASME Section XIII was designed to be "technology neutral" and requirements from Section I, III, IV, and VIII were brought in with few changes from the previous requirements other than aligning some details that may have been slightly different in each Section. Now that the document is established, areas of improvement or updates in technology will be looked at by the Section XIII committee going forward. I believe back pressure affects will be one of the areas that will investigated to see where improvements and updates to the standard can be made."

Per ISO-4126, only the term Safety Valve is used regardless of application or design.
