Pressure Vessel

Procedure
Inspection Procedure for Pressure vessel is as follows;
1) Document Review:
a. Inspector to check the Purchase Order and its attachments i.e. ITP, Design
Drawings, Data Sheet Approved Procedures, Pre qualification Documents, client
specifications, project specifications and inspection requirements (Form 175) etc.

b. The purchase order shall clearly state the description of the pressure vessel
(Quantity, Dimension, service etc..) as well as the client and international
specification applicable.

c. Unless otherwise mentioned in the Purchase Order, ASME sec VIII Div I ,Saudi
Aramco Specification 32-SAMSS-004 and ASME stamp is applicable for all
pressure vessel.
d. Material required for the manufacturer of pressure vessel will be in accordance
with ASME Sec II part Client specification.
e. Pre-inspection meeting is conducted in prior to start of fabrication activities and
to discuss & finalize all the QA/QC activity for the project and to Finalize the
Inspection Test Plan(ITP).

f. Inspection activities are to be carried out as per the agreed Inspection test Plan.

2) Physical and quantity verification: Material should be physically identified


and its quantity verified before inspection. Reference document in this case shall
be the Purchase Order.
3) Visual Inspection: A complete visual inspection of the material shall be
conducted. Check for physical condition and any visible defect/ discontinuities if
present shall be highlighted.
4) Dimensional Inspection:
Dimensional inspection of the pipes shall be done with respect to the applicable
standard/ specification/Client requirement.
5) Marking Inspection:
Marking shall be checked as per the applicable standard/ specification.

Report:
A report shall be generated in standard approved format w.r.t. the activities mentioned
above.
Responsibility:
QC inspectors are responsible for performing the inspection.
