7 API 570 familiarization questions Here are some questions to help familiarize yourself with the content of API 570. You can track down the answers from the code section given in the question. You will find the answers near the end of this book. Q1. 37: definitions The replacement of a corroded pipe spool with one identical in all respects is known by API 570 as: (a) A repair & (b) A re-rating & (c) An alteration & (d) A code concession & Q2. 6: definitions Which of these is defined as primary process piping by API 570?

The timescale in Fig. 1 shows these in diagrammatic form. Look at table 7-1 in your copy of API 570 (see Fig. 2) and note the following abbreviations and terms that have been used. The other terms and words used should be selfexplanatory. 1: temporary repairs The terminology used here is straightforward. Note, however, the new acronym in this section. We will see it appearing regularly in the ASME codes: . SMYS stands for specified minimum yield stress. Note how it is a specified value (in the code).

It effectively says that only ASME-compliant material can be used for repairs and alterations if you want to comply with API 570. This is currently difficult to comply with in the UK and other European countries where the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) has a different system of material approval. Therefore, accept that this part of API 570 does not fit well into the UK situation, but remember what API 570 actually says. The exam paper will be about what it says, not your view of how it fits into the UK inspection world.
