Pressure Equipment Integrity Management; In-Service Pressure Piping (API 570)

Have you ever dealt with corrosion under insulation with a process piping built to ASME B31.3? What type of Stress Corrosion Cracking was damaging your plant piping? How did you manage the risks of de-rating a pressure piping installed on pipe rack? Did you perform a new hydro testing or what kind of NDEs was implemented instead of hydro? How did you fix the damaged part? How was your contribution to the company asset integrity management? Do you have an effective inspection plan in place? When does it require to be revised? What are appropriate inspection intervals? Should it be an internal, on stream or external inspection? How many damage mechanisms do you know? Which NDEs are more appropriate for which damage mechanisms?

These are some of the questions around integrity of pressure piping. Here below are some topics extracted from API 570 which will be discussed in this session:

  • Introduction
  • Scope
  • Definitions
  • Owner/User Inspection Organization
  • Inspection, Examination and Pressure Testing Practices
  • Interval/Frequency and Extent of Inspection
  • Inspection Data Evaluation, Analysis, and Recording
  • Repairs, Alternations, and Rerating of Piping System

API 570 is the code for In-service Inspection, Rating, Repair, and Alteration of Piping Systems. It is one of the main codes within the context of API 579, Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments.

The ASME and API new construction codes and standards for pressurized equipment provide rules for design, fabrication, inspection and testing of new pressure vessels, piping systems, and storage tanks. These codes do not provide rules to evaluate equipment that degrade while in-service, nor do they address deficiencies due to degradation or from original fabrication that may be found during subsequent inspections. API 510 along with API 570, NBIC Part 3, and ASME PCC-2 are widely-used and recognized codes and standards governing repairs and alterations that apply to most industry sectors.
