1. Corrosion Allowance for ASME B31.3 Piping"


"Per Code, I have calculated a minimum pressure design thickness of
some 6" Sch. 80, ASTM A-335, P-11 Piping. How do you arrive at a figure
to allow for corrosion allowance. A corrosion allowance of 0.063" (1/16") is
typical, but is there a formula or table to provide this number? Does a
mandatory corrosion allowance have to be figured in to satisfy the Code?"
CA =
0.063
in
CA =
1.60
mm

B31.3 does not stipulate a corrosion


allowance (CA). Corrosion allowances are normally established by
the end user and are somewhat based on personal preferences
and industry tradition. 0.062" for piping is a common CA; however,
you are free to set whatever corrosion allowances you wish,
unless a state or local agency has adopted and superceded B31.3.
To specify the pipe, add the CA to the minimum design thickness
and select a pipe schedule that is equal to or greater than the
Min. + CA.
