The Committee is scheduled to meet the next day to complete the revision. It was previously reported that, although PTC 8.2 was no longer an American National Standard (ANS), it was being sold as an ASME Code. At the June 2009 meeting, Ray Henry said that he would review the document to determine if there is any need to revise it. Ray Henry to report Reaffirmed on February 13, 2009. Published on December 8, 2008. Sam Korellis/Steve Nuspl to reported on the fan test conducted at the Flaktwoods facility in Niles, Michigan. This program has been funded by EPRI. The purpose of this rest test is to determine the effect of inlet flow profile distortion on fan performance. The Secretary reported at the June 2009 that the PTC 12.1 Committee is being reactivated and a teleconference will be held in the near future. George Osolsobe to report.

The PTC 12.2 Committee was reactivated in June 2007. On May 2627, 2009 the Committee completed its review of the Industry Comments. [A total of eight face-to-face meetings have been held.] This is a remarkable achievement considering that the revision was a complete overhaul and a change in philosophy in conducting PTC 12.2 Code test.

PTC 19.5-2004 Flow Measurement At the last meeting, it was reported that the revision of this Supplement is progressing satisfactorily. Committee is working on revising Chapters 4 (orifices) and 5 (nozzles). Mr. Keyser requested feedback on electromagnetic flow meters. The Committee voted to not include it in PTC 19.5. Instead, provide a reference and a link to the recently revised MFC16-2007, Measurement of Fluid Flow in Closed Conduits by Means of Electromagnetic Flowmeters. Dave Keyser reported that he wanted to submit the revised sections for review but was told that the whole document had to be submitted. The Secretary said that this was a misunderstanding. PTC 19.6 NEW, Electric Power At the June 2009 meeting, the Chair, Cary Campbell, reported that the Measurements Committee held a teleconference on June 11 and expects to complete an Industry Review Draft in August.
