Emerson Process Management says that two of its pipe products – Micro Motion Coriolis and Rosemount 8800 vortex flowmeters – have been certified to the ASME (American Society for Mechanical Engineers) B31.1 Power Piping design standards, in addition to the existing B31.3 Process Piping design standard.
Micro Motion Coriolis and Rosemount vortex meters bring accurate, reliable measurement to a wide range of applications, helping electricity generators gain better insight into their processes for improved operations, says the US-based company.
“We are committed to serving the power industry and are excited to announce compliance to B31.1 Power Piping design standards,” says Andy Dudiak, president of Micro Motion at Emerson Process Management.
The Micro Motion Coriolis meters that comply with the B31.1 Power Piping design standard include the Elite, F-series and R-series meters. Meanwhile, the Rosemount 8800 vortex products that meet B31.1 design standards and Code Stamp certification include all carbon steel flanged, reducer and dual vortex meters with flange ratings up to and including ASME Class 1500 (PN 160) on one-inch (DN25) through eight-inch (DN200) meter body sizes and ASME Class 600 (PN100) on 10-inch (DN250) and 12-inch (DN300) meter body sizes.
B31.1 Power Piping design standard certification applies to all areas of the power plant except for boiler external piping (BEP), and is a basic design requirement for products sold into the power industry. B31.1 Code Stamp certification, on the other hand, applies to the BEP area of the plant.
