Sample text

API 578 is divided into seven sections (sections 1 to 7). These are all descriptive sections (no calculations) that cover the various aspects of operating what API call a Material Verification Programme. In Europe this is more commonly known as Positive Material Identification (PMI). The API 570 syllabus describes the knowledge required in ten areas, which (broadly) mirror the API 578 sections. This means that, unlike for some of the codes, all of the sections of API 578 are covered in the syllabus.

3: pressure testing As well as API 574, guidelines on pressure testing are found in? 5 only & (d) All of the above & Q7. 3: pressure testing What is the main reason why it is necessary to bleed all of the air out before a hydraulic pressure test of a pipework system? (a) Air absorbs water and so reduces the test pressure & (b) For safety reasons & (c) Air causes shock loadings and so an unsteady pressure gauge reading & (d) Air heats up as it is compressed, further increasing the pressure & 33 Quick Guide to API 570 Q8.

3 Re-rating The word re-rating appears frequently throughout API codes. Re-rating of piping systems is perfectly allowable under the requirements of API 570, as long as code compliance is maintained. In the USA, the API authorized inspector is responsible for re-rating the pipework, once happy with the results of thickness checks, change of process conditions, etc. In the UK/European way of working, this is unlikely to be carried out by a single person (although, in theory, the API 570 qualification should qualify a pipe inspector to do it).
