1. Line size: 1-1/4, 2-1/2, 3-1/2, 5, 22 not be used except with specifially. If d<1/2 is not used 2. Corrosion: based on Project material selection study report 3. Branch connection shall normally be at a 90o intersection to be run pipe 4. Evalation : where possible, a minimum of 600mm or more between changes in elevation of pipe runs in pipeways/piperack 5. Distance between Piping & Fitting: With out Flange: minimum distance is 50 to 75mm for all piping system With Flange: minimum distance is 30 mm for all piping system Minimum distance from underside of pipe or insulation to high point of deck level or platform shall be 200 mm Minimum distance from outside pipe or insulation to face of steelwork is 75 mm Minimum distance from flange edge or insulation to face of steelwork is 75 mm 6. Distance piping & other equipment: Minimum clear access width between adjacent vessel(insulation thickness to be added) Minimum clear access width between operation & service areas around diesel driven equipment turbine, compressor Minimum clear width between pumps, exchanger, small vessel and piping manifold Minimum clear headroom over platform and walkways Minimum clear headroom over stairways Minimum clear headroom in operation areas Minimum clear headroom in main escape routes 7. Vent & Drain Process vent & drain shall be minimum 3/4" NPS 8. Hydrostatic Test No less than 1,5 time the design pressure (ASME B31.3) 9. According material CS material is connection with SS regulary, Duplex is accordingly with duplex material If t < 60oC can chose the SS replaced Duplex material (same class) 9. Leak Test not less than 1.5 times the design Pressure Testing Fluid is water For design temperature above testing temperature is minimum pressure as above equation:
