UG-37 Nozzle Designing Using COMPRESS
One of the most involved tasks pressure vessel designers face is detailing nozzle openings to comply with ASME UG-37, UG-45 and UW-11. Nozzles serve many purposes including entry and exit points for process fluids, inspection access and drainage. In addition, nozzles support other equipment such as piping, relief valves, pressure gauges and agitators. Careful consideration needs to be given to pressure in combination with any other loads applied to the nozzle connection. COMPRESS easily handles all of these details and offers the most flexible and intuitive nozzle design capabilities available.
