Online Companion Guide to the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Codes: Criteria and Commentary on Select Aspects of the Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes

Publisher:
ASME Press
Publication date:
2020

This chapter focuses on specific aspects that are the driving and controlling forces in hydraulic systems for nuclear power plants. It discusses how the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code requirements are implemented for Class 1, 2, and 3 nuclear pumps designed to meet the requirements of the Code. The Design Specification defines the applicable Code, the class of construction for the pump, and all operational requirements which define how the components function in their applications. The Owner’s Responsibilities for the system design play an important part in establishing the rules applicable to the Design Specification for each safety-related...
