Reinforced Thermoset Plastic Corrosion-Resistant Equipment American Society of Mechanical Engineers / 31-May-2011 / 344 pages DescriptionThe use of reinforced thermoset plastic (RTP) vessels,operating at pressures not exceeding 15 psig external and/or 15 psig internal above any hydrostatic head, that
contain corrosive and ASME RTP-1 -2011 otherwise hazardous materials,dictates the need for rules and/or stress analysis concerning materials of construction, design, fabrication,quality control, and inspection of such equipment. In developing rules for RTP, the Committee has adapted
the principles of rules included in Section VIII,Division 1, of the ASME Boiler and PressureVessel Code,wherever they are applicable.
Adaption of standard rules to RTP requires recognition of differences that exist between metallic materials and RTP. These differences are addressed in the remainder of this Introduction.This Standard applies to stationary vessels used for the storage, accumulation, or processing of ASME RTP-1 -2011 corrosive or other substances at pressures not exceeding 15 psig external and/or 15 psig internal above any hydrostatic head.
