BPVC-XI - 2010 BPVC Section XI-Rules for Inservice Inspection of Nuclear Power Plant Components

ASME BPVC-XI contains Division 1 and 3, in one volume and provides rules for the examination, inservice testing and inspection, and repair and replacement of components and systems in light water cooled and liquid metal cooled nuclear power plants. The Division 2 rules for inspection and testing of components of gas cooled nuclear power plants have been deleted in the 1995 Edition. With the decommissioning of the only gas cooled reactor to which these rules apply, there is no apparent need to continue publication of Division 2. Application of this Section of the Code begins when the requirements of the Construction Code have been satisfied. The rules of this Section constitute requirements to maintain the nuclear power plant while in operation and to return the plant to service, following plant outages, and repair or replacement activities. The rules require a mandatory program of scheduled examinations, testing, and inspections to evidence adequate safety. The method of nondestructive examination to be used and flaw size characterization are also contained within this Section.

ASME BPVC-XI 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.
