CRITICAL LINE SELECTIONS STRESS CRITICAL LINES


ELEVATED TEMPERATURE LINES AS PER BECHTEL STANDARDS
FOR POWER JOBS: C.S LINES>400 Deg. F & S.S. LINES >300 Deg. F

EQUIPMENT CRITICAL LINE


LINES CONNECTED TO
ROTATING MACHINERY - PUMP (API 610), TURBINE (NEMA - SM23),
RECIPROCATING COMPRESSOR, FIRED HEATER (API 560), AIR COOLER (API
661), REFORMERS, VESSELS WITH BRITTLE LINING.
ANALYSIS TO ENSURE THE NOZZLE LOADS ARE WITHIN STIPULATED
MAXIMUM VALUE SPECIFIED BY CODES / EQUIPMENT VENDORS.

SUPPORT CRITICAL LINES


TWO PHASE FLOW LINES.
VERY THICK AND VERY THIN LINES.
THAT IS, LINES HAVING DIA TO WALL THICKNESS RATIO IN THE RANGE: 10<
D/T >90

RELIEF CRITICAL LINES


RELIEF VALVE DISCHARGE LINES.
FLARE HEADER, LIQUID BLOW DOWN LINES.
DOWNSTREAM OF BURSTING DISC.
