Notes:

1. The governing thickness (or heads is based on that portion of the head which is in tension. For a 2:1 S.E. head this is the crown position where R = 0.90.

2. Includes pipe 12%% under tolerance.

3. Thickness exclusive of C.a.

4. Thickness at the hub (weld attachment) governs.

5. The governing thickness of flat heads and blind flanges is 1/4 of actual thickness.

6. Since the tension stress in the wear plate is less than the tension stress in the shell, the MDMT for the shell will govern.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
