Code on Nuclear Air and Gas Treatment
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This Code provides requirements for the performance, design, fabrication, installation, inspection, acceptance testing, and quality assurance of equipment used in air and gas treatment systems in nuclear facilities.
The purpose of this Code is to ensure that equipment used in nuclear facilities for air and gas treatment systems is acceptable in all aspects of design and operation.
This Code applies only to individual components in a system. This Code does not cover any functional system design requirements or sizing of complete systems, or any operating characteristics of these systems. The responsibility for meeting each requirement of this Code shall be assigned to the Owner or assigned designee.
The requirements of ASME AG-1 for air and gas treatment components may be used for engineered safety features systems and normal systems in nuclear power generation facilities, and for air cleaning systems in other nuclear facilities. The design and procurement specifications shall delineate the design, qualification, and quality assurance requirements appropriate for the application.
