BPVC-VIII-3 - 2010 BPVC Section VIII-Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels Division 3-Alternative Rules for Construction of High Pressure Vessels

ASME BPVC-VIII-3 provides requirements applicable to the design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and certification of pressure vessels operating at either internal or external pressures generally above 10,000 psi. Such vessels may be fired or unfired. This pressure may be obtained from an external source, a process reaction, by the application of heat from a direct or indirect source, or any combination thereof.

Division 3 rules cover vessels intended for a specific service and installed in a fixed location or relocated from work site to work site between pressurizations. The operation and maintenance control is retained during the useful life of the vessel by the user who prepares or causes to be prepared the design specifications. Division 3 does not establish maximum pressure limits for either Section VIII, Divisions 1 or 2, nor minimum pressure limits for this Division. Rules pertaining to the use of the UV3 Code symbol stamps are also included.

ASME BPVC-VIII-3 is issued with an automatic addenda service.  Addenda will be issued in loose leaf format to facilitate insertion of replacement pages.  A BSI ASME binder is available, but the publication will also fit a standard three ring binder.  The addenda service includes all updates issued prior to publication of the next edition in July 2013.

The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code 2010 is now available for pre-order.
