Pipe Pressure per ASME B31.1 (104.1.2)

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Pipe

The pressure rating of comparable pipe material to fitting material.

 

Pipe Pressure per ASME B31.1 (104.1.2) formula

\(\large{ p = \frac { 2\;S\; \left( t \;-\; c \right) }     { OD \;-\; 2\;y\; \left( t \;-\; c \right) } }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ p }\) = pressure rating

\(\large{ c }\) = allowable corrosion

\(\large{ S }\) = allowable stress

\(\large{ y }\) = ASME B31.1, Table 104.1.2 (0.4 if temperature is less than 900°F)

\(\large{ OD }\) = outside diameter of pipe

\(\large{ t }\) = wall thickness of pipe
