DAILY POINTS TO RECALL (DAY 6)

1. Frequency of inspection:

a. External visual: 5 years or same as internal (or on-steam)


inspection, use smaller duration.

b. Internal/on-stream: Smaller of half remaining life or 10


years, if remaining life is < 4 years full remaining life up to
maximum of 2 years.

b. For non-continuous service external same as (a) above


but internal will be after 10 years of actual exposed life for
non corrosive, where as for corrosive it will be smaller of
half remaining life or 10 years.

2. For Insulated vessels, CUI is likely to occur If there is possibility of


moisture ingress and operate between 25 to 250 degrees F.

3. On-Stream inspection may be substituted for internal inspection if:

a. There is no access to enter.


b. If Corrosion rate is less than 5 mpy and R. L. is more than 10
years there are no questionable conditions found during
external inspection. Also, the vessel is not subject to
Environmental damage or Strip/plate lined.

4. Remaining life = Remaining C.A. / Corrosion rate

metal loss over a period


Corrosion rate =
period of metal loss

5. Pressure test:

Min. Test temp. = MDMT + 30F (thickness > 2)


= MDMT + 10F (thickness 2)

Perform Pneumatic test, if hydro is impractical.

DAILY POINTS TO RECALL (DAY 6)

6. If service conditions are changed, the allowable service


conditions (Max. pressure, max. and min. temperature) and
inspection intervals shall be determined for new condition.

7. If both ownership and location are changed vessel shall be cleaned


internally and externally and allowable conditions of service and
next period of inspection shall be established.

8. Inspection records shall have 4 type of information:

a. Design and Construction (permanent) records


b. Running (progressive) inspection records
c. Repair and alteration (modification) records
d. Fitness for service records

9. For vessels whose material is not known, MAWP can be calculated


assuming stress value for A 283 Gr. C material and Joint Efficiency
equal to 0.7.

10. Pressure relieving devices: Inspection interval not to exceed 5 years


normally but for clean non-corrosive service may be 10 years.

11. Authorization for repairs/alteration of vessels constructed as per:

ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1:


Repairs API inspector
Alterations API inspector and P.V. engineer
ASME Sec. VIII, Div.2:
Repairs & Alterations API inspector and P.V. engineer

12. If PWHT is impracticable, materials under P No. 1 (group 1, 2, 3)


and P No. 3 (group 1, 2) shall be repair welded as follows (if impact
testing is not required).

a. Preheat to 300 degrees F for a distance 4 or 4t on


either side of groove (t = weld metal thickness)

b. Welding process shall be SMAW, GMAW, or GTAW

c. Control interpass temperature not to exceed 600


degrees F

13. If impact testing is required and PWHT is impracticable, the
materials under P No. 1, 3, 4 shall be welded as follows:

a. Adopt SMAW/GMAW/GTAW process with temper bead of


half bead technique

b. Requalify the procedures as per table 7-1

c. Use low Hydrogen Electrodes. Carry out Hydrogen bake out


treatment if required (Electrodes designation > H4)

14. For all other materials other than 12 and 13 above, PWHT shall be
carried out after repair if it was carried out originally as per code of
construction.
