In Germany, inspection documents and certifications were originally specified in the standard DIN 50049. Later,o the European standard EN 10204, was first published in 1991. As per EN10204, Inspection certificates and documents were of the follwing types:
If you are into piping, you can not ignore the term pipe weight. Whether you are into Layout, stress, material, construction, or elsewhere, you will be required to get the pipe weight.
Induction bending is a method that allows the bending of pipe at any desired angle or shape by applying a bending force on the pipe that has been locally heated up by an eddy current induced by a fluctuating electromagnetic field.
Although metallic piping is widely used today, nonmetallic piping has its own importance, In addition to traditional materials, mankind now has new combinations of nonmetallic piping materials to choose from.
Pickling is the removal of a thin layer (in form of stains, inorganic contaminants, foreign matter, grease, oil, rust or scale, everything) from the surface of steel pipes.
Pipeline buoyancy must be considered anytime there is a possibility that pipe flotation could occur or be ready for dramatic damages to the pipeline. Although, it’s a simple calculation but an important aspect.
Hexagon has announced the release of CAESAR II Version-12, the industry-standard software for pipe stress analysis. The new version introduces …
Floating roof tanks are generally used to store volatile liquids to minimize the loss of the stored liquid product. Whereas, fixed roof tanks are generally used in refineries to store the product that does not readily vaporize at ambient or stored temperature conditions.
Expansion loops are one of the most effective ways to increase the flexibility in the piping system. The stress is generated in the pipelines due to thermal expansion or contraction and it can be damped by the arms of the loops mounted vertically to the mainline.
A pipeline has to be routed in such a manner as to avoid any potential weak link, due to its potentially large movement. Bends are the most common weak links of the pipelines. If a bend used in a pipeline is not properly designed, the large bulging movement…
