Do you produce an equipment, which is operating under excessive pressure (vessels, apparatus, heat exchangers, columns, pipelines, boilers, etc.)? Then you need to visit us! And of course, there should be a video about how do we do this and what is better – non-destructive tests or hydraulic tests? This is the way how do we see the advertisement of our services.
Talking seriously, our Company was one of the first companies who accredited to CU TR 032/2013 (herein after referred to as the Technical Regulations ''Equipment under pressure''), and what is important, we started to conduct certification in accordance with this regulation. It was the time, when a lot of companies didn't want to be the first, and waited for majority reaction, we did everything in accordance with instructions written in regulation. The technical regulation ''Equipment, under pressure..'' is rather complicated. It is not like all previous technical regulations of Customs Union, which came into effect before. This technical regulation was edited with the participation of the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological, and Nuclear Supervision (Rostekhnadzor), and a bit looks like industrial safety rules that existed before.
To determine, you need the required confirmation of the compliance with CU TR 032/2013. You don't need to do much actions, just to determine, for what field your equipment is intended, to determine the capacity of your equipment, or diameter, and you need to know maximum permissible operating pressure. That's all. If you know these three parameters, you can clearly understand what are the requirements your product must meet. If you know, in what field the equipment is used, then determine, which group your environment belongs. If working environment is different, then you need to choose the most dangerous. The technical regulation ''Equipment, under the pressure..'' divides environment into two groups.
1st group includes such kinds of working environment as consisted from flammable, toxic, and highly toxic gases, liquids and vapors, in a single-phase state, and their mixtures.
2nd group includes all other environments, except those, which belonging to the 1st group. Now you know, which group your working environment belongs to. Next, you need to open Appendix 1 to CU TR 032/2013. There are several tables. Tables are divided according to the equipment and working environment.
More specifically, tables are divided into vessels, boilers and pipelines. In its turn, the vessels are divided into two groups, and the same way boilers and pipelines are divided. What does it mean? If your environment belongs to the 1st group, and you produce vessels, so you need Table 1. And you can already see in the table, what do you need, knowing the capacity and the maximum allowable working pressure, and choose the category of your equipment.
