As per ASME B31.3, 303.5.3(b), 304.1.3, ASME BPV Code, UG-28 A = factor determined from Fig. G in Subpart 3 of Section II, Part D B = factor determined from the applicable material chart or table in Subpart 3 of Section II, Part D for maximum design metal temperature Do = outside diameter of cylindrical shell course or tube E = modulus of elasticity of material at design temperature L = total length, in. (mm), of a tube between tubesheets, or design length of a vessel section between lines of support P = external design pressure Pa = calculated value of maximum allowable external working pressure for the assumed value of t, t = minimum required thickness of cylindrical shell or tube, or spherical shell, in. (mm) ts = nominal thickness of cylindrical shell or tube, in. (mm) (1) Cylinders having Do /t values ≥ 10 ONLY

or

For values of A falling to the left of the applicable material /temperature line

Design Temperature:

100 F, or -254 C to 38 C

ambient temp. = 70 F, or 21 C

Material data is per ASME B31.3 - 2006, Tables A-1 and A-1A

The symbol D in ASME B31.3 is equivalent to Do in Section VIII External pressure, P = 1

bar

Remark : due to 1 bar vaccum

Safety Factor, Fs =

3.0

14.5 psi = 100 kPa = 1.02 kg/sqcm = 1 bar External design pressure, P Fs = Pd = L= D/T = 78.7 29.2 in. L/D= 43.5 22.5 0.0012 Factor B= 9000 Pa= 411 psi = 2837 kPa = 28.93 kg/sqcm = 28.37 bar psi = 300 kPa = 3.06 kg/sqcm = 3 bar

Factor A = Pa = 4B/3(D/T)

OK. The external design pressure is less than theoretical collapse pressure.
