|Publication Date:||1 January 2008|
It is recommended that containers use PRDs that meet the applicable requirements of the edition of the ASME Code or other applicable regulations, codes, standards, or specifications in effect at the time of manufacture. The container PRDs shall also meet the requirements of this publication, except containers for liquefied petroleum gas and anhydrous ammonia shall use PRDs meeting the applicable requirements of the following two standards:
- NFPA 58, Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code ; and
- CGA G-2.1, American National Standard Safety Requirements for the Storage and Handling of Anhydrous Ammonia (ANSI K61.1) .
A number of states and cities have pressure vessel laws and regulations that include requirements for PRDs. Manufacturers and users are cautioned that in some instances the relief devices recommended in this standard might not be acceptable unless special permission is obtained from the authority having jurisdiction.
