The long awaited PTC TW is a completely new standard that ASME responded to changing industry demands for a more comprehensive set of. thermowell failures in their systems, but ASME PTC had been the standard by which most thermowells were designed. Color enhanced smoke trail . Since then, ASME PTC TW has been applied successfully worldwide in all industries whose processes are subject to high loads.

This edition of the standard only considered the more frequently occurring vibrations at right angles to the flow direction.

As expected passing through this in-line resonance is the responsibility of the plant owner. It was caused by the rupture of a thermowell due to turbulence: The superior quality carbon dioxide will also be supplied to Coca-Cola systems.

The revision provides some clearer and more-detailed definitions.

How this translates into figures is shown in the table see picture gallery. In there was a serious accident at the Japanese nuclear power plant in Monju. It stands as the benchmark: For the case, which cannot be completely eliminated, of a thermowell rupture resulting from in-line resonance, the standard zsme safety provisions to prevent severe injury to personnel or damage to the plant.

Here, the permissible flexural fatigue stress must not be exceeded during the cumulative number of vibrations of 10 11 cycles.

What Has Changed with the Revision of the ASME PTC TW Standard?

The amendments contained within it relate to the following three aspects. Scientific Image of the Day: Infos can be found under www.

Subscribe to the newsletter. The provisions that it contained for the wake frequency calculation were based on J. This applies, for example, to companies in the oil, gas and chemical 1.3.

As a result, passing through the in-line resonance is possible, if the process medium is gaseous and the range of the in-line resonance does not fall within the continuous operation of the plant. Such an in-line resonance was not considered in the original calculation basis from News from process industries from all over the world.
