The Code includes six categories of fluid service, which provides a means of discriminating among possible degrees of hazard. Less stringent design, examination, and testing are permitted for fluid service of lower hazard (Category D) and more stringent requirements are applied for more hazardous fluid service (Normal, Category M, Elevated Temperature and High Pressure). High Purity fluid service provides requirements needed for piping systems requiring a certain level of cleanness.
