Description / Abstract:

This Standard provides methods for repair of equipment and piping within the scope of ASME Pressure Technology Codes and Standards1 after they have been placed in service. These repair methods include relevant design, fabrication, examination, and testing practices and may be temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances.

The methods provided in this Standard address the repair of components when repair is deemed necessary based on appropriate inspection and flaw assessment. These inspection and flaw evaluation methods are not covered in this Standard, but are covered in other postconstruction codes and standards.

Only technical procedures and information are provided; administrative or policy requirements are outside of the scope of this Standard.

1 Equipment and piping within the scope of ASME Pressure Technology Codes and Standards includes piping (including pipelines) and piping components (such as valves), boilers, pressure vessels (including heat exchangers), and storage tanks.
