ANSI / ASME B31.11: Slurry Transportation Piping Systems


Like ASME B31.4, this section of ASME B31, Pressure Piping Code, specifies minimum requirements for the design, materials, construction, assembly, inspection, testing, operation, and maintenance of piping transporting aqueous slurries of nonhazardous materials, such as oil, mineral ores, and concentrates, between a slurry processing plant or terminal and a receiving plant or terminal. The requirements of ASME B31.11 also apply to the following:

1. Primary and auxiliary slurry piping at storage facilities, pipeline terminals, pump stations, and pressure-reducing stations, including piping up to the first valve of attached auxiliary water lines

2. Slurry piping storage facilities and other equipment located on property which has been set aside for the slurry transportation system

3. Those aspects of operation and maintenance of slurry transportation piping systems which relate to the safety and protection of the general public, operating company personnel, environment, property, and the piping systems.

Refer to following figure for facilities within the scope of ANSI/ASME B31.11.

Scope of ANSI/ASME B31.11 Facilities Indicated by
Solid Lines are within the Scope of ANSI/ASME B31.11. (Source Figure
1100.11, ANSI/ASME B31.11).

 Effective Code Edition, Addenda, and Code Cases

The effective edition, addenda, and code cases applicable for piping within the scope of ANSI/ASME B31.11 shall be determined in accordance with the guidelines delineated for ASME B31.
