23.020.30 Gas pressure vessels, gas cylinders (see also 27.060.30 and 77.140.30)
|Short description:||The harmonised standard under the PED Directive 97/23/EC.|
This part covers all those inspection and testing activities associated with the verification of the pressure vessel for compliance with the standard, including design review by the manufacturer and supporting technical documentation, NDT and other inspection activities including document control, material traceability, joint preparation and welding.
The level of testing is driven by the selection of the vessel testing group. Basically, the testing group determines the level of NDT and the joint coefficient used in the design.
In terms of NDT, the overall philosophy has been the general adoption of EN ISO 5817:2003 quality level 'C' for predominantly non-cyclic loaded vessels and level 'B' for vessels subject to cyclic loadings.

3) According to the R&D of CEOC: for at least the same safety level the European standard EN 13445 enables in many cases a more cost-effective production of pressure equipment than the ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code.
4) This standard is as alternative for NDT of welds in ASME BPVC-V:2004 and ASME BPVC-VIII-1:2004.
5) DEP 188.8.131.52:- is the corporate adoption of this standard by Shell.<
