Industrial Piping Systems Codes and Standards

ASME Boiler Pressure Vessel Model Code

The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (B&PVC), which is scheduled to be updated in the coming months, is a Standard written to provide rules for the design, fabrication and inspection of boilers and pressure vessels. The mission of the B&PVC is to provide protection of life and property while assuring a long, useful service life to a pressure component designed and fabricated under the auspices of this Standard.

ASME B 31.1 Power Piping Model Code

ASME B31.1 prescribes minimum requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, erection, test, inspection, operation, and maintenance of piping systems typically found in electric power generating stations, industrial and institutional plants, geothermal heating systems, and central and district heating and cooling systems. It also covers boiler-external piping for power boilers and high-temperature, high pressure water boilers in which steam or vapor is generated at a pressure of more than 15 psig; and high temperature water is generated at pressures exceeding 160 psig and/or temperatures exceeding 250 degrees F.
