ASME HPS-2003: High Pressure Systems
standard by ASME International, 12/01/2003
The ASME HPS-2003 standard for high pressure systems provides the engineer, designer and facility manager with system safety guidance and risk based criteria for personnel and equipment based on design and location of the high pressure system and its components. ASME HPS-2003 complements ASME SECTION VIII of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code as well as ASME B31.3-2002 Process Piping.
HPS-2003 provides guidance to the Engineer for determining the safety requirements that should be taken into account not only with regard to system design, but also to the space that it will occupy, and how its failure could impact its surroundings. As well, it provides guidance for the safe operation and maintenance of a high pressure system.
This standard is essential for every user of ASME Section VIII of the Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and ASME B31.3 Process Piping.
It is a must-have for every Facility Manager having in-house pressure equipment operating at pressures above 10,000 psi.
