Interpretation: VIII-78-105 Subject: Section VIII, Division 1, U-1(c)(6), UG-19(a), and UG-99(e) Date Issued: July 19, 1978 File: BC78-351 Question: When applying the exemption for a Section VIII, Division 1 pressure vessel in U-1(c)(6) to the tube side of a shell and tube heat exchanger when the tube side contains only water, should the 120 gal nominal water-containing capacity be applied to the entire water containing capacity of the tube side, including both channels or heads and tubes, or should it be applied separately to each channel and head? Reply: The intent of Section VIII, Division 1 regarding multiple chamber vessels is that each pressure chamber be treated as a separate pressure vessel. In the case of a shell or tube type heat exchanger as covered by your inquiry, U-1(c)(6) would apply to the total volume of the channels or heads and tubes. The channel sections or heads and the tubes would not be treated independently in determining volume of the water side of the heat exchanger. The intent of U-1(d)(2) is further clarified by UG-19(a) and UG-99(e) that deal with combination units. As indicated by footnote 1 to U-1 in Section VIII, Division 1, the Code does not take precedence over pressure vessel laws that may exist at the point of installation.
