The long awaited PTC TW is a completely new standard that ASME responded to changing industry demands for a more comprehensive set of. thermowell failures in their systems, but ASME PTC had been the standard by which most thermowells were designed. Color enhanced smoke trail . Since then, ASME PTC TW has been applied successfully worldwide in all industries whose processes are subject to high loads.

In there was a serious accident at the Japanese nuclear power plant in Monju. This article is protected by copyright. As a result, passing through the in-line resonance is possible, if the process medium is gaseous and the range of the in-line resonance does not fall within the continuous operation of the plant.
For the case, which cannot be completely eliminated, of a thermowell rupture resulting from in-line resonance, the standard demands safety provisions to prevent severe injury to personnel or damage to the plant. KG Klingenberg a. The amendments contained within it relate to the following three aspects.
News from process industries from all over the world. You want to use it for your own purpose? The provisions that it 91.3 for the wake frequency calculation were based on J.

What Has Changed with the 2016 Revision of the ASME PTC 19.3 TW Standard?
Subscribe to the newsletter. This applies, for example, to companies in the oil, gas and chemical industries. It was caused by the rupture of a thermowell due to turbulence: Main Germany Company Profile Contact. Our portfolio can be seen here.
As a consequence of the Monju incident, the ASME standard from was completely revised and the result was published in Infos can be found under www. The superior quality carbon dioxide will also be supplied to Coca-Cola systems. Here, the permissible flexural fatigue stress must not be exceeded during the cumulative number of vibrations of 10 11 cycles.
Furthermore, the process medium must not adversely affect the fatigue strength of the thermowell material. Scientific Image of the Day: Dos Santos International; Picture: This standard remained unchanged for more than 20 years.
What Has Changed with the Revision of the ASME PTC TW Standard?
Such an in-line resonance was not considered in the original calculation basis from Receive 15 new engineering projects per week — get them easily delivered into your mailbox. The revision provides some clearer and more-detailed definitions.

This edition of the standard only considered the more frequently occurring vibrations at right angles to the flow direction. Chemical Safety Board; Picture: The vibration direction of the tube was parallel to the flow direction of the medium in the pipe.
It stands as the benchmark: With this deal, a wide range of PVA polymer grades will be made available in the pharma market. Select a picture to open the gallery 8 Pictures.
As expected passing through this in-line resonance is the responsibility of the plant owner.
