BPVC-X - 2010 BPVC Section X-Fiber-Reinforced Plastic Pressure Vessels

ASME BPVC-X provides requirements for construction of an FRP pressure vessel in conformance with a manufacturer's design report. It includes production, processing, fabrication, inspection and testing methods required for the vessel. Section X includes two Classes of vessel design; Class 1 a qualification through the destructive test of a prototype and Class II,mandatory design rules and acceptance testing by nondestructive methods. These vessels are not permitted to store, handle or process lethal fluids. Vessel fabrication is limited to the following processes: bag-molding, centrifugal casting and filament-winding and contact molding. General specifications for the glass and resin materials and minimum physical properties for the composite materials are given.

ASME BPVC-X 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.
