What is a piping system
- Pipe sections
- Fittings (e.g., elbows, reducers, branch connections, etc.)
- Flanges, gaskets, and bolting
- Pipe supports and restraints
Scope of ASME B31.3
- Raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals.
- Petroleum products.
- Gas, steam, air, and water.
- Fluidized solids.
- Cryogenic fluids.
- Piping systems for internal gauge pressures at or above zero but less than 15 psi, provided that the fluid is nonflammable, nontoxic, and not damaging to human tissue, and its design temperature is from -20°F through 366°F.
- Power boilers that are designed in accordance with the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section I and external boiler piping that must conform to ASME B31.1.
- Tubes, tube headers, crossovers, and manifolds that are located inside a fired heater enclosure.
- Pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, and other fluid-handling or processing equipment. This includes both internal piping and connections for external piping.
