Page Count: 94
scope:

Rules for the Process Piping Code Section B31.3 have been developed considering piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals.

Content and Coverage

(a) This Code prescribes requirements for materials and components, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of piping.

(b) This Code applies to piping for all fluids, including:

(1) raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals;

(2) petroleum products;

(3) gas, steam, air, and water;

(4) fluidized solids;

(5) refrigerants; and

(6) cryogenic fluids.

(c) See Fig. 300.1.1 for a diagram illustrating the application of B31.3 piping at equipment. The joint connecting piping to equipment is within the scope of B31.3.

Packaged Equipment Piping. Also included within the scope of this Code is piping which interconnects pieces or stages within a packaged equipment assembly.

Exclusions. This Code excludes the following:

(a) piping systems designed for internal gage pressures at or above zero but less than 105 kPa (15 psi), provided the fluid handled is nonflammable, nontoxic, and not damaging to human tissue as defined in 300.2, and its design temperature is from −29°C (−20°F) through 186°C (366°F);

(b) power boilers in accordance with BPV Code Section I and boiler external piping which is required to conform to B31.1;

(c) tubes, tube headers, crossovers, and manifolds of fired heaters, which are internal to the heater enclosure; and

(d) pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, and other fluid handling or processing equipment, including internal piping and connections for external piping.
