SECTION I GENERAL This summary of changes to Section I of the ASME Code is not all inclusive and contains the changes we consider most important to our clients. Please remember to use the Code for actual requirements. The 2011 Addenda to the Code become mandatory January 1, 2012. This addenda was printed on white paper and was printed in its entirety. Also please note that Footnotes have been changed to Endnotes and these endnotes are part of the Standard. ASME will no longer issue addenda. The next edition of the Code will be issued in 2013 and then issued every 2 years thereafter. Code Case Supplements will be published two times a year. Interpretations will be posted on the ASME website at http://cstools.asme.org/Interpretations.cfm in January and July of each year. What ASME calls a Special Notice may be posted on the website prior to the 2013 Edition to provide approved revisions to Code requirements. These revisions may be used upon issuance but become mandatory 6 months after issuance. Errata to the Code will also be posted on the ASME website to provide corrections. Errata are typographical or grammatical errors. These Special Notices and Errata can be found at http://www.asme.org/kb/standards/publications/bpvc-resources or http://cstools.asme.org/BPVErrataAndSpecialNotice.cfm

SECTION I GENERAL The ASME is phasing out multiple stamps and moving to a single mark. The major driver behind this change is to fully protect the marks. As the ASME needs to register marks in the more than 100 countries in which stamped equipment is used, the use of a single mark allows ASME to register one mark in these countries thus making it easier to afford greater protection of a single mark rather than lesser protection for multiple marks. The proposed schedule for implementing the move to a single ASME certification mark will be publication in the 2011 Addenda to the Code. There will be a transition period during which a Manufacturer or Constructor would be able to use either one of the 25 applicable current marks or the single mark. Use of the single mark would then become mandatory on January 1, 2013. There will be a policy statement in the front of the ASME Code books describing this transition period and an implementing Code Case in both the BPV and Nuclear Code Case Books. Each stamp holder must go to ASMEs CA connect (http://www.caconnect.asme.org), establish an account if they have not already and request the new Mark. ASME will not be sending individual notifications of this to the stamp holders It is up to the stamp holders to independently request this new mark An example of how the stamping may appear In the case of Section I, the Designator that will appear directly under the Certification Mark as S, A" or PP".

SECTION I, PART PG PG-8.1.4.2 PG-67.7 was deleted in the 2009 Addenda. The reference in PG-8.4.1.2 to this paragraph was deleted. PG-13 Added CSA-G40.21 Grades 44W and 50W material to PG-13 PG-16.6 An action is being proposed to bring the Forewords of all BPV Sections up to date, and to remove from the Forewords any paragraphs that embody rules, since it has been determined that the Forewords are not part of the Code and cannot contain enforceable rules. Paragraph PG-16.6 was added to add the statement from the Forward addressing tolerances. This was added here because many feel that Forwards are not a part of the Code. Since the tolerance statement is mandatory language it was felt it needed to be added to the body of the Code.

SECTION I, PART PG (Continued) PG-22.1 The purpose of this item is to clarify the requirements of PG-22. The second sentence of PG-22.1 contains the phrase average stress which is not defined in the Code and is used generically in the literature thus being ambiguous. This proposal replaces the current sentence with two sentences the first statement that Section I does not address stresses due to additional loadings, and the second states that such loadings shall be addressed by the Manufacturer based on engineering judgment and Code philosophy and points the user to PG-16.1 for guidance This paragraph was revised to say This Section does not fully address additional loading other than those from working pressure or static head. Consideration shall be given to such additional loading. (See PG-16.1). This replaced the second and third sentences in that paragraph. PG-27.4.4 Note 4 This paragraph was revised to indicate that e = 0 for tubes strength-welded to tubesheets, headers and drums. Strength-welded tubes shall comply with the minimum weld sizes of PW-16. This was revised to add tubesheets. Please note that Strength Weld referred to here relates to a weld used to attach a tube and therefore the tube does not need expanding. Weld Strength referred to in PW-15 refers to adequate weld strength to attach elements of reinforcement.

SECTION I, PART PG (Continued) PG-28 Section I up to this point did not address external pressure except for firetube boiler furnaces in PFT-51 and manway openings in PG-28. This left out some items such as drum heater coils. PG-28 has been revised to address cylindrical components under external pressure by referring to PFT-51.4. Summary of Changes Added new title PG-28 COMPONENTS UNDER EXTERNAL PRESSURE PG-28.1 THICKNESS OF CYLINDRICAL COMPONENTS UNDER EXTERNAL PRESSURE (PFT-50 paragraph has been revised and moved to PG-28.1) PG-28.2WELDED ACCESS OR INSPECTION OPENINGS UNDER EXTERNAL PRESSURE PG-28.3 MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE EXTERNAL WORKING PRESSURE FOR CYLINDRICAL COMPONENTS (PFT-51 has been revised and moved to PG-28.3) PG-31.2 The symbol for gasket moment is in PG-31.2 was different than in Figure PG-31. Paragraph revised from hg to hG. PG-32.1.4(a) Revised to clarify intent

SECTION I, PART PG (Continued) PG-33.1 The formula for A1 was revised to account for the fr factor. Up to this point, the formula did not account for the situation where a weaker material was used for nozzles inserted into the vessel wall. The term Wd was added as the width of the nozzle inserted into the vessel wall beyond tn. Wd = not greater than the larger of D/2-tn or t (See Fig. PG33.2) Note, the Wd applies to integrally reinforced nozzles per Fig UG-33.2. Fig. PG-33.2 Revised to show Wd PG-33.1, A-66 and A-69 Revised examples with regards to the addition of the term Wd. PG-33.3 Revised the nomenclature for fr1 to be equal to Sn/Sv for all nozzles, not just those inserted through the vessel wall. Also, an example problem in A-67 was corrected to square the term WL3. PG-49 Revised to limit the allowable stress for steam locomotives to 7500 psi to comply with the Federal Railroad Administration.

SECTION I, PART PG (Continued) PG-52.3 This paragraph was completely revised by deleting the present existing words and adding rules to establish equivalent longitudinal efficiency for circumferential ligaments for use in design formula of PG-27.2.2, A-125 and A-317. This clarifies that the designer can double the circumferential efficiency to establish the equivalent longitudinal efficiency to use in the design formula. PG-52.5 Added For all tube hole pattern arrangements, the equivalent longitudinal ligament efficiency for any diagonal and circumferential ligaments shall be calculated and compared to the longitudinal ligament efficiency. The lesser value of the longitudinal ligament efficiency or the equivalent longitudinal ligament efficiency shall be used to calculate the minimum required thickness and maximum allowable working pressure for the associated cylindrical section. PG-52.6 Added pc for circumferential pitch Also, the reference to Fig PG-52.6 was incorrect since there is no Fig PG-52.6. This reference was changed to PG-53.3 PG-60.1.6 Revised to add A means of manually opening and closing the valves from the valve operating floor or platform shall be provided. This insures that gage glasses will be blown down and done in a safe manner. Also editorially changed acceptance to acceptable.

SECTION I, PART PG (Continued) PG-72.2 An editorial correct was made to the table in PG-72.2 by inserting the greater than symbol in front of the number 70 in the second row. Also, references to A-300 were corrected to reference A-301 and A-302. PG-106.4.2 Deleted the word steel where it appears before the word Economizer. PART PW PW-28.2 Revised to say volumetric NDE instead of just radiography for welder qualifications to bring Section I in line with the new Section IX allowing the use of UT. PW-39 Revised to allow PWHT exemptions to be based only on nominal thickness as defined in PW-39.3 and notes (a)(3), (a)(4), (a)6), (a)(8) through (a)(10), (a)(12) (a)(13), and (c) were deleted and the remaining notes renumbered. Also please note, the reference to PW-34 in note (a)(1) and (2) to table PW-39.1 should be PW-39.3. PW-39.3 Revised to address cooling and heat up rates by reference to A-101. Also added definitions of nominal thicknesses for different types of welds.

SECTION I, PART PW (Continued) PW-40.3.4 Revised to allow the use of the temper bead technique as well as the half bead technique for weld repairs after PWHT. SECTION I., APPENDICES A-65 Editorial changes to correct references to Figure PG-32 and making the correct reference to PG-32.1.4. A-68 Deleted the reference to Figure PG-32 and making the correct reference to PG-32.1.2 and PG-32.1.4. Also adds the calculations for Dmas. A-70 Editorial change to correct the calculation for A41 to show 0.3752 be multiplied by 1. A-101 As reverenced in PW-39, this is a new non mandatory appendix giving suggested guidance on heat up and cool down rates for PWHT. A-317 Revised to address the weld strength question as shown in PG-27.

SECTION I, APPENDICES (Continued) A-360 Revised as follows: B31.1 update to 2009 from the 2007 edition, Revised PTC-25 from 2001 to 2008, Revised SNT-TC-1A to the 2006 Edition and Revised note 4. A-350 Changes the requirements for the AI to now to use their NB commission number and endorsements even if the item is not registered with the NB. A360 Revised Note 4 of Table A-360, to sztate: The Manufacturer is cautioned that the O.D. tolerance used to calculate the values for dimensions C shown in Table 1 and Table I-1 may be different from the tolerance listed in the applicable material specification and that machining to this dimensions could result in a wall thickness (see PG-42.4.2), requiring further action by the Manufacturer. DATA REPORT FORMS The current requirements for recording an Authorized Inspectors National Board Commission and Endorsement on a Manufacturers Data Report (MDR) are: If the item is National Board stamped, the commission number and endorsement must be shown; If the item is not National Board stamped, only the inspectors state or province number must be shown. This is in conflict with the requirements of QAI-1 which requires the Inspector to have a National Board Commission and Endorsement, yet the inspector may only record the information if the item is National Board stamped. Revise all Data Report Forms and Guides to instruct the Authorized Inspector to include his/her National Board Commission Number and endorsement when signing all ASME Data Report Forms.

SECTION IV, FORWARD It became apparent that clarification was needed for establishing governing Code Edition and Addenda for new construction and field assembly as well as for parts. Also, as a result of initiating this item, CSP-9 (see background information file) was revised to establish a policy for establishing the effective edition and addenda to be used to construct an item that is to be stamped with an ASME certification mark (e.g. Code Symbol Stamp). The actions proposed by this item are needed to implement that Policy. Revise the Foreword, HG-100, Manufacturers Data Reports, and insert new mandatory appendix 8 to address the requirements for governing Code edition. SECTION IV, PART HG HG-400.2(e) The relief valve capacity exception found in paragraph. HG-400.2(e) for cast iron boilers should also apply to cast aluminum boilers. The revision to this paragraph will accomplish the intent.
For cast iron or cast aluminum boilers constructed to the requirements of Part HC or Part HA, the minimum valve capacity shall be determined by the maximum output method.

HG-530.2 Some confusion was occurring with respect to proper name that should be shown on rating plate as an Assembler with a Certificate to Install Nameplate only is not sufficiently covered in the Code currently. With the addition of the nameplate installation certificate the Section IV Committee intended that the certificate holder was the one to assume responsibility for the boiler and they would have their name on the nameplate. Revise HG-530.2(c) to add new sub-paragraphs 1 and 2. New sub-paragraph HG530.2(c)(1)(a) and 530.2(c)(1)(b) will define a Shop Assembler as the certificate holder that ultimately applies the ASME nameplate to the case iron or cast aluminum boiler. Subparagraph HG-530.2(c)(2) will be sub-divided into HG-530.2(c)(2)(a) through HG530.2(c)(2)(d) and will incorporate the current requirements notes in HG-530.2(c)(1) through HG-530.2(c)(4).

SECTION IV, PART HG (Continued)


HG-530.2 (Continued)

HG-530.2 Marking Requirements for Cast Iron or Cast Aluminum Boilers (c) When the boiler size and number sections have been decided, the completed boiler shall be marked with the Code Symbol shown in Fig. HG-530.1 and with the following data: 1) the Shop Assemblers name preceded by the words Certified by 2) maximum allowable working pressure 3) safety or safety relief valve capacity (minimum), as determined according to HG400.1(d) and Hg-400.2(e) (4) maximum water temperature (d) The Shop Assembler that is in possession of a Code Symbol Stamp and valid Certificate of Authorization shall be one of the following: (1) the shop that assembles sections into boilers, performs the hydrostatic test and installs the nameplate.
(2) the shop that installs the nameplate on a boiler, previously assembled and hydrotested by another authorized Certificate Holder. (3) the shop that only installs the nameplate on a boiler jacket.

HG-502.3 At present, Section IV requires that the yield or tensile strength of a part burst tested be determined from a specimen cut from the part tested from a location where the stress during the test did not exceed the yield strength. On some cast parts, it is very difficult to locate a section where the part was not over stressed. Allowing the yield or tensile strength to be determined from separately cast bars that were poured from the same lot as the tested part will insure that the yield or tensile strength thus determined will not be based on a part previously over stressed. (c) For cast pressure parts, cast test bars may be used in lieu of the specimens referenced above. If used, cast test bars shall be produced, machined and tested in accordance with the requirements of Section II. Cast test bars shall be poured from the same ladle of material, under the same sand conditions, that the cast pressure part subjected to bursting is poured from and shall receive the same thermal treatment as the cast pressure part subjected to bursting.

SECTION IV, PART HG (Continued)


HG-502.3 (Continued)

(d) The design pressure P, psi, for pressure parts, tested under this paragraph shall be computed by the following formula: P = PB/5 X S/(Sa or Sm) where B PB = bursting test pressure S = specified minimum tensile strength Sa = average actual tensile strength of test specimens or cast test bars, Sm = maximum tensile strength of range of specification.
HG-710.5

HG-710.5 includes mandatory requirements to place identification tags on boiler supply and return valves. The issue with this mandatory language is that some individuals believe it is essential to include the exact wording on the tags, only because the Code says shall. Although there is good reason to have such identification and the advice it provides, the piping, valves, and tags are outside the scope of Section IV and therefore not mandatory. Delete HG-710.5 since it is outside the scope of Section IV. SECTION IV, PART HF HF-203 & HLW-203 Revised HF-203.2, HF-203.3 and HLW-203 to define ASME standard and Manufacturers standard pressure parts and add footnotes 3, 4 and 5 to HF-203 and footnotes 1,2 and 3 to HLW-203.

SECTION IV, PART HF (Continued) HF-204.3(e) & Table HF-300.1 Note 12 The reference found under HF-204.3(e) to note (16) should be replaced by a reference to Note (12) and the note itself should be revised to reflect that the conversion of 210 F is 99 C and not 98 C. Revised to say (e) For austenitic stainless steel materials only, the water temperature shall not exceed 210F (99C). [See Table HF-300.1, Note (12).] Table HF-300.1 Under notes: (12) The water temperature shall not exceed 210F (99C). Table HF-300.1 It is desired to use SF-568M, property class 10.9 material in Section IV construction because that is the material from which metric fasteners are fabricated. Section II, Part A, SF-568M, par X1.1.5 indicates that SF-568M, Class 10.9 mechanical properties are purchased as SF-568M material and then recertified to SA-354, grade BD in accordance with Section IV, paragraph HF-206. Adding this material to table HF-300.1 will eliminate the time and expense of recertifing the SA-354 material. Since this material has been heat treated, the maximum allowable stress should be the lesser of 20% of tensile or 25% of yield.
Revise tensile strength value for SF-568M SF-568M 10.9 Carbon Steel 150(1040) (10) 30.2 (208)

EN 10025-2 2004 Edition Grade S235JR (1.0038) EN 10088-2 2005 Edition Grade X6CrNiMoTi17-12-2 (1.4571) EN 10217-1 2002 Edition Grade P235TR2 (1.0255)

with Section IV, limited to hot water applications Addition of three new materials: SA/EN 10025-2 2004 Edition Grade S235JR SA/EN 10088-2 2005 Edition Grade X6CrNiMoTi17-12-2 SA/EN 10217-1 2002 Edition Grade P235TR2 HF-301.1 Section IV is requesting Section II provide two separate tables, HF-300.1 and HF-300.1M, which will replace existing Table HF-300.1. The new Tables HF-300.1 and HF-300.1M are to contain temperature dependant stress values from room temperature to 500F (275C) for all materials currently listed in Table HF-300.1. Section IV and MPC have prepared both tables and are requesting Section II approval. The allowable stress value for SA-193 B7 bolting material at room temperature has been corrected. Table HF-300.1 has been replaced with two new tables HF-300.1 and HF-300.1M for US Customary and SI units respectively. The new table lists temperature dependent allowable stress values ranging form room temperature to 500 F (275 C). Correct the allowable stress value of SA-193 B7 bolting material at room temperature to YS/4 (75/4 = 18.8 ksi.).

SECTION IV, PART HA HA-302(d) A manufacturer requested new paragraph (d) be added to the end of HA-302 in order to allow the use of Sand Cast Aluminum Alloy EN AC-AlSif10Mg(a), F Temper having core removal ports closed by welded patches. The use of welded patches, having the same thickness of the adjacent material is proven as good engineering practice for this material and in the foundry industry. Core of correct size and shape is necessary to obtain a sound casting and therefore the suitable opening is required to remove the core. EN AC-AlSi10Mg(a), F temper alloy is recognized by the BS EN 1706/1998 as A-class (Excellent) ability to be welded. Revise HA-302 by adding new requirements under new paragraph (d) as follows: (d) Core holes in aluminum alloy castings may be plugged by welded patches made of the same material as the castings under the following conditions: (1) The welded plugs may only be used to plug holes required for the manufacturing process, such as core sand removal. They shall not be used for repair. (2) Proof testing to establish design pressure is required and shall comply with HA-402. (3) The shop assembler shall hydrostatically test each casting per HA-406 HA-406.1 In the manufacture of several boiler products using a series of cast aluminum boilers of a monoblock design that require no additional assembly (there are no boiler sections or manifolds involved in these designs). These castings will have been tested at 2-1/2 times MAWP by the foundry. Therefore, it is felt that it is not necessary to test them again at a lower pressure.

SECTION IV, PART HA (Continued) HA-406.1 (Continued)


(a) Revised to say Hot water heating boilers marked for maximum allowable working pressures not over 30 psi (200 kPa) shall have each individual section or boiler part subjected to a hydrostatic test of not less than 60 psi (400 kPa) at the shop where made. (c) The assembled boiler shall be subjected to a hydrostatic test pressure not less than 1 1/2 times the maximum allowable working pressure. (1) Cast aluminum monoblock boilers, boilers with a single section design that do not require additional machining or assembly, do not require a second hydrostatic test at 1 1/2 times the maximum allowable working pressure. (a) Any additional machining, short blasting or grinding after the hydrostatic test will require testing at 1 1/2 times the maximum allowable working pressure.

SECTION IV, PART HC HC-211 Under the current requirements of HC-211 test bars are required per melting period and the melting periods are limited to 8 hours. A foundry running a 10 hour shift is defined as having 2 melting periods and is required to pour 4 test bars per shift. This change maintains the minimum requirements, while removing penalties for foundries running shifts longer than 8 hours. NUMBER OF TESTS
For purposes of this requirement, a melting period shall not exceed 24 hr. For tensile or traverse tests for each class of iron, one of more test bars shall be cast during each 4 hour period during the melt. No less than two test bars are to be cast from each melt, one during the first half of the melting period, and the other during the last half of the melting period. For chemical composition test samples, see HC-202. During each eight hour period, one chemical composition test and either one tensile or one transverse test shall be made on each melt (or each mixture if two or more mixtures of a different class of iron are made in a given melt) for each controlling section (see HC-206) in the castings made from each melt (or mixture).2

SECTION VIII, Div. 1 GENERAL This summary of changes to Section VIII, Div. 1 of the ASME Code is not all inclusive and contains the changes we consider most important to our clients. Please remember to use the Code for actual requirements. The 2011 Addenda to the Code become mandatory January 1, 2012. This addenda was printed on white paper and was printed in its entirety. Also please note that Footnotes have been changed to Endnotes and these endnotes are part of the Standard. ASME will no longer issue addenda. The next edition of the Code will be issued in 2013 and then issued every 2 years thereafter. Code Case Supplements will be published two times a year. Interpretations will be posted on the ASME website at http://cstools.asme.org/Interpretations.cfm in January and July of each year. What ASME calls a Special Notice may be posted on the website prior to the 2013 Edition to provide approved revisions to Code requirements. These revisions may be used upon issuance but become mandatory 6 months after issuance. Errata to the Code will also be posted on the ASME website to provide corrections. Errata are typographical or grammatical errors. These Special Notices and Errata can be found at http://www.asme.org/kb/standards/publications/bpvc-resources or http://cstools.asme.org/BPVErrataAndSpecialNotice.cfm

SECTION VIII, Div. 1 GENERAL (Continued) ASME is phasing out the multiple stamps and moving to a single mark. The major driver behind this change is that in order to fully protect the marks, ASME would need to register marks in the more than 100 countries in which stamped equipment used. The use of a single mark will allow ASME to register one mark in these countries thus making it easier to afford greater protection of a single mark rather than lesser protection for multiple marks. The proposed schedule for implementing the move to a single ASME certification mark will be publication in the 2011 Addenda to the Code. There will be a transition period during which a Manufacturer or Constructor would be able to use either one of the applicable 25 current marks or the single mark. Use of the single mark would then become mandatory on January 1, 2013. There will be a policy statement in the front of the Code books describing this transition period and an implementing Code Case in both the BPV and Nuclear Code Case Books. Each stamp holder must go to ASMEs CA connect (http://www.caconnect.asme.org), establish an account if they have not already and request the new Mark. ASME will not be sending individual notifications of this to the stamp holders It is up to the stamp holders to independently request this new mark An example of how the stamping may appear In the case of Section VIII, Division 1, the Designator that will appear directly under the Certification Mark as U

Revise all Section VIII Div. 1 paragraphs to refer to the ASME Certification Mark instead of the Code Stamp. FORWARD The ASME has determined that the Forewords are not part of the Code. Accordingly, a proposal to move those portions of the present Forewords of the BPV Codes which are perceived to contain mandatory and enforceable language into an appropriate location in their respective Book Sections has been made. One of those portions is in the 5th paragraph of the Foreword that addresses tolerances. This action takes the exact words that currently reside in the Foreword on tolerances and place them in the new paragraph. While coverage regarding tolerances is addressed (for example, UG-80 and UG-81), it was felt that a dedicated paragraph was needed in view of the broader range of applicability in which that these paragraphs may apply.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG UG-11 The revision is a restructuring of UG-11 to include rules for non-standard pressure parts; rules for pressure parts, welded or non-welded, built to an ASME product standard such as B16.5; and rules for pressure parts, welded or non-welded, built to a standard other than ASME such as a Manufacturers standard. The documentation that a Manufacturer must have in order to satisfy himself that the part complies with the rules of the [Code] and the design is suitable for the design specification. has been increased It also provides rules for allowing a Manufacturer to subcontract welding to another entity for welding pressure parts that is to their own standard, and will also incorporate ASME B16.1 as an acceptable product standard for fabrication of vessels to Part UCI. This paragraph has undergone significant changes. A lot of the information that was in UG-11(a) is now in UG-11(c). The manufacturer of the completed vessel is still responsible to assure the parts supplied comply with this Division. The documentation that Manufacturer must obtain in order to satisfy himself that the part complies with the rules of this division and the design is suitable for the design specification has been increased. UG11(e) is a new paragraph allowing the use of a subcontractor to perform welding even though the subcontractor is not a Code stamp holder. The paragraph details all the requirements that must be met by the vessel and parts manufacturer.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) UG-19 This item revises the marking and data report rules for combination units. It removes the requirement that parts of chambers be marked or identified on the Data Report, since it is sufficient that this requirement only apply to chambers, Added the requirement that common elements of chambers not included in the scope of this Division be marked and described on the Data Report, and reorganized the MDR and marking requirements for combination units to reside in their own paragraphs. The paragraphs related to the marking and MDR requirements for combination units were reorganized as well. UG-116(l) is now UG-116(k). This revises the marking and data report rules to: 1) remove the requirement that parts of chambers be marked or identified on the Data Report, since it is sufficient that this requirement only apply to chambers, 2) add the requirement that common elements of chambers not included in the scope of this Division be marked and described on the Data Report, and 3) reorganize the MDR and marking requirements for combination units to reside in their own paragraphs.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) UG-20(a) Cautionary note added to UG-20 Design Temperature References to WRCB 470 for suggested details for vessels in elevated temperature service Non mandatory requirement

Experience has shown that some pressure vessels operating at temperature in the creep range of the materials have experienced cracking after some period of operation. Such cracking has most often occurred at locations that exhibit stress concentrations and/or local thermal gradients, and weldments. Typical locations where cracking has occurred are as follows: Nozzle reinforcing pad attachment welds Nozzle-to-shell junctions Support attachment points Other fillet welded attachments Added a reference to WRC-Bulletin 470 Recommended Design Details for Elevated Temperature Service. This is a cautionary note to help in preventing cracking in the creep range. UG-32(b) This paragraph was deleted because it is not used anymore. The paragraphs will not be renumbered due to the large number of references to these other paragraphs. Fig UG-34 sketch (g) This sketch was revised to correct 1.2 ts to 1.25 ts to match paragraph UG-34(d)

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) UG-39 New Mandatory Appendix 41 for Electric Immersion Heater Support Plates Uses same methods as given in Part UHX for perforated plate Results in a more accurate, less conservative design than required by UG-39 reinforcement rules

The current rules for reinforcement of multiple openings in flat covers used to support electric element heaters result in greater thicknesses than rules consistent with those in Part UHX. Flanged electric immersion heaters consist of tubular electric heating elements typically mounted in multiple penetrations in ASME B16-5 blind flanges. Under the current Code rules and interpretations, a flanged electric heater element support plate is not considered a tubesheet but rather an unstayed flat head or cover. Therefore, the rules in Part UHX are not applicable and the cover thickness requirements are calculated using the formulas and rules in UG-34 and UG-39. For multiple penetrations, the rules in UG-34 (c)(2) require the value under the square root sign in formula UG-34 (c)(2), Formula (2) to be doubled for both operating and bolting calculations. This causes the thickness to be unnecessarily greater than that computed using the Part UHX methodology. The Appendix would establish mandatory rules for the design of electric immersion heater element support plates that are specific to these products using the rules established in Part UHX, specifically UHX-12 for U tube heat exchangers. Typically blind flanges are used for the electric immersion heater element support plate. However it is not uncommon for a manufacturer to be forced to use the next higher class of blind flange in order to achieve the minimum thickness requirements for both operating and bolting as calculated by UG-34 and UG-39. Moreover the required thicknesses as determined by these rules are typically 20% to 30% thicket than similar calculations for heat exchanger tubesheets subjected to the same pressure and temperature. The proposed Appendix would establish mandatory rules for the design of electric immersion heater element support plates that are specific to these products using the rules established in Part UHX, specifically UHX-12 for U tube heat exchangers. Revised to add a reference to Appendix 41 for electric immersion heaters and their design. OneCIS I nsuran c e C o m p a n y

UG-90(c)(1)(n) Inspection and Tests Revised paragraph (n) to add When the Inspector has certified by signing the Manufacturers Data Report, this indicates acceptance by the Inspector. This acceptance does not imply assumption by the Inspector of any of the responsibilities of the Manufacturer.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) UG-93(a)(1) Added new paragraphs (a)(1)(a) and (a)(1)(b). These paragraphs define what must be contained in documentation received by the vessel manufacturer for plate material. These documents shall be either an MTR or a C of C and shall be prepared by the originator of the data. The Inspector shall determine that this documentation represents the material and meets the requirements of the material specification. (a) Revised to read Except as otherwise provided in UG-4(b), UG-10, UG-11, or UG-15, requirements (1) For plates,2 the vessel Manufacturer shall ensure all requirements of the material specification, and all special requirements of this Division, that are to be fulfilled by the materials manufacturer have been complied with. The Manufacturer shall accomplish this by obtaining certificates of compliance of Material Test Reports. The Inspector shall determine if these documents represent the material and meets the requirements of the material specification. (a)(1) For plates,2 the vessel (a) These documents shall include results of all required tests and examinations, evidence of compliance with the material specification and additional requirements, as applicable. When the specification permits certain specific requirements to be completed later, those incomplete items shall be notes on the material documentation. (b) The vessel Manufacturer shall receive a copy of the test report as prepared by the originator of the data and maintain as part of his construction records.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) UG-99(b) Revised this paragraph to consider static head in hydrostatic test pressure calculations. This means the gauge does not have to be at the top of the vessel as long as static head is considered in the pressure calculations. Paragraph (b) now says Except as otherwise permitted in (a) above and 27-4, vessels All loadings that may exist during this test shall be give consideration. The hydrostatic test pressure reading shall be adjusted to account for any static head conditions between the chamber being tested and the pressure gage. UG-99(f) Vessels design and constructed for service under high vacuum (HV) or ultra high vacuum (UHV) conditions are routinely not ASME Code stamped and certified. Vacuum vessels are specifically excluded from the scope of Section VIII, Division 1 per the provisions of U-1(c)(2)(h). As a result, HV and UHV vessels are often constructed in compliance with AWS D17.1, or other similar standards which impose loose technical requirements, making it difficult to invoke a standard of consistent design and construction quality for these vessels. As a result, there are broad inconsistencies in the way manufacturers design and construct vacuum service vessels, often compromising their performance. It would be helpful for users to be able to specify construction and certification under Section VIII, Division 1 rules to impose more detailed requirements for greater consistency in engineering and construction quality. However, HV and UHV vessels have unique design and service needs which often make full compliance with Section VIII, Division 1 impossible, precluding their certification and stamping under the provisions of U-1(c)(2). To eliminate the existing barriers to U Code Symbol Stamping of HV and UHV vessels, a set of alternative rules is being proposed as revisions to existing Code requirements for pressure testing of vessels intended only for vacuum service.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UG (Continued) This paragraph was revised to allow vacuum testing as an alternative for vacuum service vessels, and to impose leak testing requirements for performing vacuum testing. UG-102(a) The definition of, connected to the vessel, is subject to interpretation. The text of the paragraph is revised to clarify the intent of the connection. Also, this provides guidance for static head considerations if the gage is not at the top of the chamber. (a) An indicating gage shall be connected directly to the vessel or with a pressure line that does not include intermediate valves. If the indicating gage is not readily visible to the operator controlling the pressure applied, an additional indicating gage shall be provided where it will be visible to the operator throughout the duration of the test. For large vessels, it is recommended that a recording gage be used in addition to indicating gages. UG-116(j) Revised to clarify the marking and data report requirements for combination units and common elements adjacent to at least on Code chamber. Also reorganized the paragraphs relating to the marking and MDR requirements for combination units. Renumbered UG-116(l) to UG-116(k).

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 PART UB UB-30(d) UW-26(d) was revised (BC03-212) )to permit subcontracted welders to be used only at the address on the Certificate of Authorization or the final installations sire. This is a significant departure from past practice that permit the use of subcontracted welding at locations other than the Certificate Holders address or final installation site. When this revision to UW-26(d) was considered, UB-30 was not included. This proposal will correct the oversight and make both provisions consistent with each other. Rules were added to tighten the requirements for subcontracted brazers similar to those required for welders.

Adjustments made to the minimum tensile strengths for Block Materials. SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 MANDATORY APPENDICES APPENDIX 1-10(b) Corrected At to read AT by errata APPENDIX 2 Revised the definition of go Also, the reference to UG-44(a) to UG-44(b) in the third line. APPENDIX 3 Revised various definitions for consistency with Division 2. 3-2 DEFINITIONS OF TERMS Material Manufacturer: the organization responsible for the production of products meeting the requirements of the material specification, and accepting the responsibility for any statements or data in any required certificate of compliance or Material Test Report representing the material. Material Test Report: a document in which are recorded the results of tests, examinations, repairs, or treatments required by the material specification to be reported. Including those of any supplementary requirements or other requirements stated in the order for the material. This document may be combined with a certificate of compliance as a single document. When preparing a Material Test Report, a material manufacturer may transcribe data produced by other organizations provided he accepts responsibility for the accuracy and authenticity of the data. APPENDIX 6 Added Paragraph (d) which says Documentation showing that the required examinations have been performed and that the results are acceptable shall be made available to the Inspector.

SECTION VIII, DIV. 1 MANDATORY APPENDICES (continued) APPENDIX 8 Added Paragraph (d) which says Documentation showing that the required examinations have been performed and that the results are acceptable shall be made available to the Inspector. APPENDIX 10 Added line (5) to paragraph 10-13(b) to state Pressure parts documentation and certifications The rest of the items were renumbered. Also, Line Item (b)(7) was revised to say Welders Qualification Records for each welder who welded on the vessel The intent of 10-13(b)(6) is to be able to identify which welder made each weld on a pressure vessel; see UW-37(f). The text of the code should be clarified to show this. UW-37(f), Welder and Welding Operator Identification, is clear that the intent of the code is that identifying stamps are to be applied to vessel welds or a record is to be kept as to which welder welded each joint. Paragraph 10-13(b)(6) revised to be clear that records should be kept in accordance with UW-37(f). APPENDIX 23 Removed the maximum limit of 1500F for copper and copper alloy tubes. APPENDIX 24 24-1(a) was revised to add considerations of loads other than pressure. In 24-1(f), retainer requirements were modified. And in 24-1(d) added an alternative to equation 5.

SECTION VIII DIVISION 2 Annex 2.C Section VIII, Div. 2 Code was rewritten in 2007 Edition the words that permit Manufacturers with multiple locations, each with its own Certificate of Authorization, to transfer pressure vessel parts from one location to another without Partial Data Reports were inadvertently deleted. The deletion of these words creates a hardship for those manufacturers that fabricate parts in one location and transport them to another location for assembly into the final vessel. As a historical note the revision to Section VIII, Div. 2 in the 2002 Addenda (BC97-401) AM-105, AS-310 permitted the transfer of welded parts between one Manufacturers Multiple Plant Locations Add Paragraph 2.C.2.3 Manufacturers with multiple locations, each with its own Certificate of Authorization, may transfer pressure vessel parts from one of its locations to another without Partial Data Reports, provided the Quality Control System describes the method of identification, transfer, and receipt of the parts. Paragraph 5.5.1 Added new.7 for weld seam peaking when a fatigue analysis is required Paragraph 6.1.6.3.a) and c) Revised to add consideration of peaking when the weld joint is operating at a temperature where the allowable stress is in the time dependent regime The current words of 6.1.6.3.a are essentially the same as AF-136 from the A06 version of Div 2. However, since VIII-2 now goes into the creep regime, creep should be addressed in addition to fatigue. There have been documented failures of Category A welds failing in creep due to the additional bending stress as a result of peaking. Paragraph 6.1.6.3 is OneCIS I nsuran c e C o m p a n y

modified to include vessels that operate where time dependent properties govern the allowable stress. SECTION VIII DIVISION 2 For welded joints exceeding 2 inches in thickness, Table AF-142.1 of the 2004 Edition of Section VIII Div 2 (incl. 2006 Addenda) listed the maximum allowable offset in welds as a function of the thickness, with a maximum of 3/8 inch in longitudinal joints, or 3/4 inch in the case of circumferential joints. When the 2007 Edition of Div 2 was published, the limit was shown as a maximum of the two criteria. This has the effect of increasing the maximum allowable offsets (see comparison on page 3 of the proposal file). To be consistent with the old Div 2, the Max expression in Table 6.4 should be replaced with Min. For information, a table showing the values from Table AF-142.1 of the old Div 2, the current Table 6.4, and the revised Table 6.4 after the proposed changes are made. Table 6.4 0-1707 Table 6.4 Maximum Allowable Offset in Welded Joints Section Thickness Category A Joints Category B, C, D Joints 13 mm (1/2 in) < t t/4 t/4 13 mm (1/2 in) < t 19 mm (3/4 3 mm (1/8 in) t/4 in) 19 mm (3/4 in) < t 38 mm (1-1/2 3 mm (1/8 in) 5 mm (3/16 in) in) 38 mm (1-1/2 in) < t 50 mm (2 3 mm (1/8 in) t/8 in) max mint 1/6, 10 mm (3/8 max mint/8, 19 mm (3/4 t > 50 mm (2 in) in) in) Notes: t is the nominal thickness of the thinner section at the weld joint.

SECTION VIII, DIVISION 3 The provisions on KM-211.2(c) have been used to circumvent the requirements of KM211.1(a) and (b) for very thick forgings. KM-211.2(c) currently permits Charpy V-notch test specimens for very thick forgings (e.g. a flat head >20 inches thick) to be taken immediately adjacent to the surface. While the impact properties at the surface may be acceptable, the properties at the 1/4 t location may be very poor. This action eliminates the exemption for very thick forgings and clarifies that for contour shaped forgings, the intent is to determine the equivalent of the 1/4 t location as accurately as practicable and to take the test specimens at that location. Para KM-211.c (c) For very thick or complex forgings that are contour shaped or machined to essentially the finished product configuration prior to heat treatment, a drawing prepared by the Manufacturer shall show the surfaces of the finished product which will be subjected to high tensile stresses in service. The distance between this surface and the nearest quenched surface is defined to be the thickness t. Test specimens shall be removed from stock provided on the product. The coupons shall be removed so that the specimens shall have their longitudinal axes at a distance t below the nearest heat-treated surface. The midlength of the specimen shall be a minimum of twice this distance, 2t, from any second heat-treated surface. In any case, the longitudinal axes of the specimens shall not be nearer than 3/4 in. (19 mm) to any heat-treated surface. This is known as the t by 2t test location. For forgings that are contour shaped or machined to essentially the finished product configuration prior to heat treatment, find the interior location that has the greatest distance to the nearest quenched surface. Designate this distance t/2. Test specimens shall be taken no closer to any quenched surface than 1/2 of this distance (1/4 t location). The mid length of the specimen shall be a minimum of t/2 from any second quenched surface.

SECTION IX QW-161.1 Revised to allow multiple specimen to be taken across the weld so that the entire weld and heat affected zones are tested. Changed weldheat to weld and heat. QW-196.2 Revised to delete the reference to QW-462.11 which no longer exists. QW-264 Updated the variables for Laser Beam Welding (LBW) This also required revisions to several paragraphs in QW-400. QW-300.3 Revised the paragraph to say, each participating organization has a PQR(s) to support the WPS or has an SWPS adopted in accordance with Article 5. QW-409.2 Revised to say A change from globular, spray or pulsed spray transfer welding to short circuiting transfer welding or vice versa. QW-409.26 Revised the last sentence to say the increase shall be determined by the methods of QW-409.1 QW-409.29 Revised to address the determination of heat input. QW-420 Revised to clarify the requirement for unlisted base metals. Only base metals listed in table QW/QB-422 with a minimum tensile strength values may be used for procedure qualification except as modified by the following paragraph. The following paragraph says, If an unlisted base metal has the same UNS number designation as a base metal listed in table QW/QB-422, that base metal is also assigned that P-number or Pnumber plus Group Number. If the unlisted base metal is used to procedure qualification, the minimum tensile values of the listed base metal shall apply for the tension test specimens. Also added Material produced under an ASTM specification shall have the same P-Number or P-Number plus Group-Number and minimum specified tensile value as that of the corresponding ASME specification listed in table QW?QB-422. (e.g., SA-240 Type 340 is assigned P-No 8, Group 1; therefore, A240 Type 304 is P-No 8, Group 1.)
