Materials and Fabrication Practices for New Pressure Vessels Used in Wet H2S Refinery Service
|Publication Date:||1 January 2006|
This report reviews and discusses materials selection, fabrication, PWHT, inspection, testing, and corrosion control practices that have been used for recently manufactured new equipment destined for use in wet H2S refinery environments. Some users choose to take a risk-based assessment approach to the application of the following service categories to new equipment using individual plant operating experience when available. For the purpose of this report, it has been assumed that the equipment was designed and built to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC), Section VIII, Division 1 or Division 2. Piping and atmospheric storage tanks are excluded from the scope of this report.
