Description / Abstract:

High Pressure Systems requirements shall augment the ASME Boiler and Pressure Code, Section VIII, Pressure Vessels and the ASME B31.3 - Chemical Plant and Petroleum Refinery Piping Code. These requirements for High Pressure Systems exclude nuclear power applications.

These provisions were developed because of the high stress conditions usually imposed on equipment in high pressure applications which generally present severe physical hazards by high energy releases in the event of equipment failure.

It is intended that these provisions cover those areas not already accommodated by existing standards and shall serve as standards for design, materials, fabrication, installation, testing, inspection, maintenance, documentation, replacement, repair, and protective containment of high pressure systems.
