wall thickness reduction of pressure equipment with cover layer and with the
following conditions.
a) the metal protective layer thickness is not greater than 1 mm;
b) for stainless steel or aluminium protective layer, the cover layer
thickness is not greater than 200 mm; for iron protective layer, the cover
layer thickness is not greater than 100 mm;
c) base material thickness range is 3 mm ~ 70 mm;
d) tube or pipe fitting diameter is not less than 50 mm;
e) base material temperature range is -196°C ~ 500°C.
1.3 The inspection of in-use pressure equipment without cover layer can
refer to this Part.
