0

Computer program verification

incl. evidence of alternate calculation per method applied

1

 

Drawing + Calculation

a) Drawing No. and Revision

b) ASME Code Edition and Addenda

c) Code Cases

d) Units: SI/U.S. Customary

e) Design- operational data

f) MDMT(see also point 12)

g) Materials

h) Dimensions(ID, T, OD etc)

I) Loads (use separate checklist as well)

j) Check permissible S- value listed in applicable Code Section

k) Services Restrictions

l) Nameplate data, location of nameplate

m) National Board registration    Y/N

n) CRN- Registration                  Y/N

o) Identification of joints on the drawing

p) Assignment WPS to joints on the drawing

q) Compliance of groove design drawing with   ranges on WPS

2

Test Pressure (Minimum)

a) Hydrostatic Test

    1.3*MAWP*(S[Ttest] / S [Tdesign] )

b) Pneumatic Test

   1.1* MAWP*(S[Ttest/  S [Tdesign])

3

Type of Weld Joint

a) RT Examination

b) Selection, location of "Spot"

c) NDE(PT/MT) on Corner Joints Joggle Joint

d) Hubbed flanges from rolled plate

4

Corrosion Allowance

5

Tolerances

a) Wall thickness, plate and pipe

b) Misalignment

c) Tapered transitions

d) Staggered longitudinal joints

e) Out-of-roundness for internal pressure

f)  Out-of-roundness for ext. pressure calculated + data transfered to prod./QC

6

Inspection Openings

7

Check whether design calculations have been made for all presure bearing parts:

a) Shell, conical reducer section(conical reducer section shall also meet the requirements of Appendix 1-5 and/or 1-8)

b) Dished heads, conical heads

c) Compensation of openings(large openings see also App. 1-7 or 1-10)

d) Flanges (App. 2 or ASME B16.5)

e) Covers, flat heads

f)  Bolts

g) Tube sheets: applicability and use od UHX(otherwise, see also TEMA)

h) Expansion joint (see also EJMA)

i)  Nozzle attachment welds(allowable stresses in welds)

j)  External pressure

k) Jacketed vessel Appendix 9

l)  loadings e.g. vessel supports

m) shell sections and heads extreme fibre elongation

8

Minimum wall thickness

a) Shell

b) Dished head

c) Nozzle

d) Remaining wall thickness underneath tapped holes

9
