INTERPRETATIONS
VOLUME 57 SECTION I
Replies to Technical Inquiries
January 1, 2006 through December 31, 2006

FOREWORD
General Information
This publication includes all written interpretations issued between the indicated dates by the ASME Staff
on behalf of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Committee in response to inquiries concerning interpretations of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. A contents is also included which lists subjects specific
to the interpretations covered in the individual volume.
These interpretations are taken verbatim from the original letters, except for a few typographical and
editorial corrections made for the purpose of improved clarity. In some instances, a review of the interpretation
revealed a need for corrections of a technical nature. In these cases, a revised interpretation is presented
bearing the original interpretation number with the suffix R and the original file number with an asterisk.
Following these revised interpretations, new interpretations and revisions to them issued during the indicated
dates are assigned interpretation numbers in chronological order. Interpretations applying to more than one
Code Section appear with the interpretations for each affected Section.
ASME procedures provide for reconsideration of these interpretations when or if additional information
is available which the inquirer believes might affect the interpretation. Further, persons aggrieved by an
interpretation may appeal to the cognizant ASME committee or subcommittee. As stated in the Statement
of Policy in the Code documents, ASME does not approve, certify, rate, or endorse any item,
construction, proprietary device, or activity.
An interpretation applies either to the Edition and Addenda in effect on the date of issuance of the
interpretation or the Edition and Addenda stated in the interpretation. Subsequent revisions to the Code may
supersede the interpretation.
For detailed instructions on preparation of technical inquiries to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel
Committee, refer to Appendix I.
Subject and Numerical Indexes
Subject and numerical indexes have been prepared to assist the user in locating interpretations by subject
matter or by location in the Code. They cover interpretations issued from Volume 12 up to and including
the present volume and will be updated with each volume.

Interpretation: I-04-34
Subject: Code Case 1855, Referenced on Master Data Report and Stamping
Date Issued: March 7, 2006
File: BC05-1575
Question (1): May a heat exchanger with the shell side manufactured in accordance with Section VIII,
Division 1 and the tube side manufactured to Section I be installed in a Section I boiler system when the
shell side is manufactured to the provisions of Code Case 1855 as an unfired steam boiler?
Reply (1): Yes.
Question (2): For the heat exchanger described in Question (1), is it required that the code case number
be marked on the Section VIII stamping and listed on the Section I Master Data Report?
Reply (2): Yes.

Interpretation: I-04-35
Subject: PG-9.1, Application of ASTM A 696 in Lieu of ASME SA-105 for Use as a Drum Water LevelIndicating Device
Date Issued: March 7, 2006
File: BC06-0128
Question: May a material supplied to ASTM A 696 Grade C be used as ASME SA-105?
Reply: Yes, provided it meets all the requirements of ASME SA-105 and has been recertified according
to PG-10.

Interpretation: I-04-36
Subject: PG-32, Thickness and Nominal Thickness as They Apply to Openings
Date Issued: March 7, 2006
File: BC06-0188

File: BC04-1687
Question (1): Are the out-of-roundness requirements in PG-80.1 applicable to welded headers?
Reply (1): Yes.
Question (2): Is the intent of PG-80.1 to limit the method used to achieve the 1% maximum out-ofroundness requirement to reheating, rerolling, or reforming?
Reply (2): No.

Question (1): In the case of Gage Glass assemblies that utilize multiple tubular sections, does PG-60.1
require an overlap between adjacent sections?
Reply (1): Yes.
Question (2): In the case of Gage Glass assemblies utilizing multiple sections, other than those employing
tubular designs, is it permissible to omit the overlap between adjacent sections required by PG-60.1?
Reply (2): No.
Question (3): In the case of Gage Glass assemblies utilizing multiple sections, other than those employing
tubular designs, is it permissible to omit the overlap between adjacent sections required by PG-60.1 if the
