ASME STP-PT-006-2007

Design Guidelines for Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines

This report provides recommendations and guidance to the ASME B31.12 Hydrogen Piping and Pipelines Section Committee for design factors for metallic and nonmetallic pipe materials when used in a dry hydrogen gas environment; design life considerations; nondestructive examination (NDE) recommendations; in-service inspection (integrity management) recommendations; research needs and recommendations. The scope of this report includes all common metallic piping and pipeline materials used in the construction of piping and pipeline systems, of seamless and welded construction; composite reinforced welded or seamless metallic-lined piping and pipelines that are currently commercially manufactured and for which technical design data is available; composite reinforced plastic-lined piping and pipelines that are currently commercially manufactured and for which technical design data are available. Design factors are developed considering the operating conditions, internal hydrogen environment within the piping and pipeline systems and the effect of dry hydrogen gas on the material of construction. Composite piping and pipeline line pipe are considered as hoop-wrapped construction with liners capable of withstanding longitudinal loads. Other examination and inspection recommendations are made using similar considerations. Research recommendations are made based on lack or vagueness of existing data or where the research results were not readily adaptable to engineering use.

Lay-up combinations developed in accordance with Practice D3737 are not required to be governed by this standard. Note 1:  The models described by Practice D3737 have been developed and modified based on more than 50 years of experience and many test programs. In some cases, however, it may be desirable to develop a new model based on other input properties or using lumber materials or grades not covered by that standard. 1.4  Details of production, inspection, and certification are beyond the scope of this document. However, for test results to be representative of production, quality control systems shall be in place to ensure consistent quality.

ASTM E2565-21

Standard Guide for Consensus-Based Process for an Occupational Safety and Health Standard That Includes an Occupational Exposure Guideline

1.1  This guide presents a framework for a stakeholder-focused, consensus-based decision-making process for occupational safety and health standard development activities that include adoption or development of occupational exposure guidelines (OEGs) as a part of occupational health and safety standards. 1.2  This guide applies to safety and health standard development activities in which an occupational exposure guideline will be included as one element of a comprehensive standard that addresses safety and health management strategies such as communication, monitoring, and controls. It is not meant to be used to develop an OEG apart from the context of such management strategies. In cases where other occupational exposure limit (OEL) establishing bodies have developed OELs, those may be reviewed, assimilated, or adapted rather than recreated ab initio . 1.3  This guide does not replace existing consensus-based decision-making or committee participation processes that are used to develop safety and health standards. It is intended to be used in conjunction with such processes to improve scientific and technical input and stakeholder involvement in occupational safety and health decision-making for such standards. 1.4  Limitations— This guide does not prescribe specific methods for generating or evaluating scientific and technical data related to assessing a particular occupational safety and health issue. Occupational safety and health standards apply to a wide variety of substances and occupational exposure circumstances. It is not possible to anticipate all situations where an OEG may be useful for a standard. This guide will be helpful in promoting appropriate balance and input, but the consensus process must deal with real-world complexities that individual standards may involve. 1.5  This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
