REINFORCEMENT OF WELDED BRANCH CONNECTIONS*


ASME B31.3 (CHEMICAL PLANT AND PETROLEUM REFINERY PIPING)
With this method, you may design Reinforcement required for branch connections. This method covers the design of piping systems handling all fluids, including fluidized solids, and to all types o service, including raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals, oil and other petroleum products, gas, steam, air, water, and refrigerants, except as provided below (See para. Exclusions). You may also obtain : Wall Thicknesses required (Header "run" and Branch) Area of Reinforcement required Area of Reinforcement available Cross-sectional area of various welds available for reinforcement Cross-sectional area of material added as reinforcement Total Area Available Size of reinforcing pad (if required) Size of fillet welds (Outside and reinforcing pad fillet-if required) Furthermore you will be able to: Check your existing branch connections for different conditions . Check your reinforcement of openings design modifying someone of the parameters as follows: Design Pressure (internal). Design Temperature. Thicknesses (Header and Branch). Diameters (Header and Branch). Material Specification : Header, Branch. Reinforcing Pad Material. Corrosion Allowance (Header and Branch).

EXCLUSIONS (1) Packaged Equipment Piping. Piping which interconnects individual pieces or stages of equipment within a packaged equipment assembly shall be in accordance with B31.3, except that packaged refrigeration piping may conform to either B31.3 or B31.5. (2) This Calculation Method excludes the following: Piping systems designed for internal gage pressures at or above zero but less than 15 psi (103 kP)

provided the fluid handled is nonflammable, nontoxic, and not damaging to human tissue as defined in para 300.2, and its design temperature is from -20F (-29C) through 366F (186C); power boilers in accordance with BPV Code Section I and boiler external piping which is required to conform to B31.1; tubes, tube headers, crossovers, and manifolds of fired heaters, which are internal to the heater enclosure; pressure vessels, heat exchangers, pumps, compressors, and other fluid handling or processing equipment, including internal piping and connections for external piping; piping located on company property which has been set aside for pipelines conforming to B31.4 or B31.8 or applicable governmental regulations; plumbing, sanitary sewers, and storm sewers; and fire protection systems constructed in compliance with insurance underwriters' or other recognized fire protection engineering standards. Notes: - This method applies ASME CODE B31.3 para.304.1.2 (a) "Pressure Design of Metallic Components". - For t>=D/6 (t:Required thickness of the pipe, D:Outside Diameter of the pipe), Calculation of pressure design thickness for straight pipe requires special consideration of factors such as theory of failure, and thermal stress. - This method is not applicable for high Pressures. (High Pressure: Pressure in excess of that allowed by the ANSI B16.5 Class 2500 rating for the specified design temperature and material group).
