B30.2 applies to the construction, installation, operation, inspection, and maintenance of hand-operated and power-driven overhead and gantry cranes that have a top-running single-girder or multiple-girder bridge, with one or more top-running trolley hoists used for vertical lifting and lowering of freely suspended, unguided loads consisting of equipment and materials. The requirements included in this Volume also apply to cranes having the same fundamental characteristics such as cantilever gantry cranes, semi-gantry cranes, and wall cranes. Requirements for a crane used for a special purpose such as, but not limited to, non-vertical lifting service, lifting a guided load, or lifting personnel are not included in this Volume.

The ANSI/ASME B1.1 / ANSI/ASME B1.2 / ANSI/ASME B1.20.1 – Unified Screw and Pipe Threads Package provides the specifications and gages for unified screw threads and pipe threads. It also specifically specifies the thread form, allowance, tolerance, and designation for unified screw threads. The ANSI/ASME B1.1 / ANSI/ASME B1.2 / ANSI/ASMEB1.20.1 – Unified Screw and Pipe Threads Package

Fitness-for-service assessment is a multi-disciplinary engineering approach that is used to determine if equipment is fit to continue operation for some desired future period. The equipment may contain flaws, have sustained damage, or have aged so that it cannot be evaluated by use of the original construction codes. API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 is a comprehensive consensus industry recommended practice that can be used to analyze, evaluate, and monitor equipment for continued operation. The main types of equipment covered by this standard are pressure vessels, piping, and tanks. This course is timely, emphasizing the practical application of a recently updated standard.

This Standard covers overall dimensions, tolerances, ratings, testing, and markings for wrought factory-made buttwelding fittings in sizes NPS 1/2 through 48 (DN 15 through 1200).

This Section provides requirements for construction of an FRP pressure vessel in conformance with a manufacturer’s design report. It includes production, processing, fabrication, inspection and testing methods required for the vessel. Section X includes three Classes of vessel design; Class I and Class III – qualification through the destructive test of a prototype and Class II – mandatory design rules and acceptance testing by nondestructive methods. These vessels are not permitted to store, handle or process lethal fluids. Vessel fabrication is limited to the following processes: bag-molding, centrifugal casting and filament-winding and contact molding. General specifications for the glass and resin materials and minimum physical properties for the composite materials are given.

If you are an energy planner, engineer, designer, utility project manager, wind power station developer, manufacturer of wind turbine equipment, teacher, or student, WIND TURBINE TECHNOLOGY has all the latest information for you. This text and reference book is ideal for educational settings.

This Code provides test procedures to determine the thermodynamic performance of an axial or centrifugal compressor or exhauster doing work on a gas of known or measurable properties under specified conditions. This Code is written to provide explicit test procedures which will yield the highest level of accuracy consistent with the best engineering knowledge and practice currently available. Nonetheless, no single universal value of the uncertainty is, or should be, expected to apply to every test. The uncertainty associated with any individual PTC 10 test will depend upon practical choices made in terms of instrumentation and methodology

Covers piping systems that transport aqueous slurries of nonhazardous materials, such as coal, mineral ores and other solids between a slurry processing plant and the receiving plant.

The purpose of this document is to provide standards for application to the threaded parts of hose couplings, valves, nozzles, and all other fittings used in direct connection with hose intended for domestic, industrial, and general service in normal sizes of 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2, and 4 in. The normal sequence of connections, in relation to the direction of flow, is from an externally threaded nipple into an internally threaded coupling.  The basic dimensions are given in Table 1 while complete detailed dimensions and thread form are given in Tables 2 and 3.
