Tangential, Tilted and Hillside Nozzle Design

Due to process and pipe routing considerations, nozzles on pressure vessels and heat exchangers are frequently placed in non-radial orientations. These non-radial or hillside nozzle to vessel intersections create obround openings which require additional geometric calculations to meet ASME VIII BPVC rules. Put another way, the nozzle opening diameter d used for UG-37 reinforcement [...]

Pressure Vessel Component Design With COMPRESS

Simple Pressure Vessel Component Design COMPRESS does not require you to model an entire pressure vessel to design or rate individual components. This capability is useful when investigating a pressure vessel component that must be modified. For complicated components, like Appendix 2 flanges and nozzles, the user can call upon a specific [...]
