56: re-rating The word re-rating appears frequently throughout API codes. Re-rating of the MAWP or MDMT (minimum design metal temperature) of pressure vessels is perfectly allowable under the requirements of API 510, as long as code compliance is maintained. In the USA, the API authorized inspector is responsible for re-rating a pressure vessel, once happy with the results of thickness checks, change of process conditions, etc. In the European way of working, this is unlikely to be carried out by a single person (although, in theory, the API 510 qualification should qualify a vessel inspector to do it).

A nozzle) the situation is slightly different. 1: corrosion averaging reinforcement defined in ASME VIII UG-35. We will look at this later when we consider ASME VIII. 3: evaluation of pitting API codes have well-defined ideas about the effect of pitting on vessel integrity. The clarity of the code sections covering this has varied in past code editions but the general principle is clear.

The temperatures have equalized out). The hydrostatic test procedure ASME VIII UG-99 (g) gives requirements for the test procedure itself. This is a fertile area for closed-book examination questions. An important safety point is the requirement to fit vents at all high points to remove any air pockets. This avoids turning a hydrostatic test into a pneumatic test, with its dangers of stored energy. Another key safety point is that a visual inspection of the vessel under pressure is not carried out at the test pressure.
