    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements for the installation of pressure equipment. It is part of a major program to restructure, unify and simplify the various Standards which comply with AS/NZS 1200. Provides requirements for the safety of pressure vessels and boiler installation. It recognizes the growing use of quality assurance systems, and ensures the initial and continued safe and reliable performance of pressure plants.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the requirements for, and gives guidance on, the installation of boilers, pressure vessels, and associated piping, control, and safety equipment constructed in accordance with AS/NZS 1200, together with other associated Standards, such as AS 1210, AS 1228, AS 1797, AS 2593 and AS 3653.NOTE: No requirements can be written in sufficient detail to cover all aspects of installation for the great variety of pressure equipment. Each installer is responsible for taking every necessary step to ensure that the quality of the installation is in accordance with all applicable requirements and is adequate for continued safe performance of the equipment. This may require further work to be undertaken and the seeking of expert advice.This Standard applies to, but is not limited to, the following pressure equipment:(a) Static boilers (including superheaters, economizers, reheaters and air heaters) but excluding domestic pressure cookers, domestic coffee machines and similar boilers.(b) Static fired and unfired pressure vessels (including industrial fired heaters, water heaters, feedwater heaters, heat exchangers and other similar equipment).(c) Associated auxiliaries, e.g. boiler combustion equipment, fuel storage and handling equipment, combustion air and flue gas systems, feed and circulating pumps.(d) Associated appurtenances, e.g. safety valves, pressure gauges, water gauges, blowdown systems, feedwater controllers, soot blowers, steam and water valves, and rupture discs.(e) Associated pressure equipment control systems.(f) Associated piping.
