ASME B31.1: Standards of Pressure Piping - Power Piping
This code prescribes minimum requirements for the design, materials, fabrication, erection, test, and inspection of power and auxiliary service piping systems for electric generation stations, industrial institutional plants, central and district heating plants.
ASME B31.3: Standards of Pressure Piping - Process Piping
Rules for this section have been developed considering piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals.
ASME B31.8: Standards of Pressure Piping - Gas Transmissions and Distribution Piping Systems
This code covers the design, fabrication, installation, inspection, testing, and safety aspects of operation and maintenance of gas transmission and distribution systems, including gas pipelines, gas compressor stations, gas metering and regulation stations, gas mains, and service lines up to the outlet of the customers meter set assembly.
ASME B31.8S: Standards of Pressure Piping - Managing System Integrity of Gas Pipelines
This standard applies to on-shore pipeline systems constructed with ferrous materials and that transport gas. The principals and processes embodies in integrity management are applicable to all pipeline systems.
ASME B31.12 : Standards of Pressure Piping - Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines
This standard activity has been formed to develop a new code for hydrogen piping and pipelines that contains requirements specific to hydrogen service in power, process, transportation, distribution, commercial, and residential applications. It will include equivalent information found in B31.3, B31.8, and NFPA 54 for natural gas.
ASME B31Q: Standard on Pipeline Personnel Qualification
This standard is anticipated to address issues such as methods for determining applicable tasks, initial qualification and reevaluation methods and intervals, required personnel qualification program elements, applicable definitions, abnormal operating conditions, record keeping, and management of change.
