The Nozzle Quick Design feature eliminates the trial and error otherwise required to design nozzles that meet ASME BPVC requirements such as UG-37 and UG-45. It is not unusual to have vessels with 20 or more openings and time spent detailing nozzles can really add up. With Nozzle Quick Design, you just select the nozzle size you want, locate it on the vessel and let COMPRESS do the rest. Preferences direct the Nozzle Quick Design to fill in the details based on your design rules. Your choices include:
Your preferences are then used to design nozzles that meet the opening reinforcement rules of UG-37, minimum wall thickness requirements of UG-45 and attachment weld sizes per UW-16. Once detailed, nozzle MDMT’s are calculated per UCS-66 or UHA-51 as appropriate.
