The maximum allowable working pressure for avessel is the
maximum pressure permissible at the top of thevessel in its normal operating positionat the designated coincident temperature specified for that pressure
. It is the
least of the valuesfound for maximum allowable working pressure for any of the essential parts of the vessel
by theprinciples given in (b) below, and
adjusted for any difference in static head
that may exist between the partconsidered and the top of the vessel (See 3-2).
