Selection and Purchase of Bulk Solids Product Containers

Abstract ↓

This Practice provides selection guidelines and configuration requirements for use by a Purchaser specifying cylindrical, atmospheric and low-pressure, welded, shop-fabricated or field-fabricated dry bulk solids bins, hoppers, silos, and gravity blenders having internal design pressures not greater than 103 kPa (15 psig) and/or full vacuum external pressure at the top of the container in its normal operating position. Containers may be welded, shop-fabricated, or field-fabricated, and typically in accordance with the philosophy and requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1, henceforth referred to as the Code.

Supplemental Design Criteria and Purchasing Requirements for Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Abstract ↓

This Practice provides requirements for use by a purchaser for determining the design criteria including design, materials of construction, inspection and testing for shell and tube heat exchangers constructed in accordance with ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 1 or Division 2, henceforth referred to as the Code, TEMA Standards of the Tubular Exchangers Manufacturers Association, and PIP VECV1001. Requirements that are specific to Code, Section VIII, Division 2 are shown in braces . This Practice provides requirements for purchasing shell and tube heat exchangers to be designed and fabricated by a manufacturer. This Practice also provides guidance for the development of purchase specifications for the construction of new shell and tube heat exchangers that meet the philosophy and requirements of Code, Section VIII, Division 1 or 2 and PIP VECV1001. For some heat exchanger purchases, certain requirements in this Practice and in PIP VECV1001 may be assigned by purchaser to manufacturer. The specific requirements assigned (e.g., thermal design and the performance rating) shall be specified on purchaser’s PIP VEDST003 Data Sheet.

Hygienic Process for Food/Beverage/Consumer & CGMP Products Stainless Steel Ball Valve Descriptions

Abstract ↓

This Practice provides requirements for suppliers providing hygienic stainless steel ball valves included in PIP Piping Line Class Material Specifications. For the purposes of this practice, “Hygienic,” “Process,” or “Hygienic Process” refers to all Hygienic Processes for Food/Beverage/Consumer & Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) or other products requiring a clean design. Ball valves are most often used in utility systems, such as clean gas flow, steam, water, etc., that support hygienic processes; however, it is highly recommended to avoid use of ball valves in the hygienic process. If necessary, it is recommended that any product contact ball valves are designated as “Clean Out of Place (COP)” to prevent cross contamination between products and batches.

Reading Practices

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
