Materials, Name Plates, and
Data Reports

however. as built drawings and tabulation sheets are also acceptable. . the Code specifies that materials for parts of a vessel should be laid out and marked in such a way as to easily maintain traceability after the vessel is completed. Stamping is the preferred method of marking vessel parts. Several techniques for identification markings are allowed and are described in this paragraph.UG-77 Material Identification Page 67 Section VIII The material for pressure parts must be handled in a particular way per the Code. The manufacturer must maintain trace ability to the original markings. For instance.

If a particular material should not be die stamped. The part manufacturer can use only materials allowed by the Code. A record of these markings must be maintained which will allow positive identification of the vessel parts after construction. when cutting parts for the vessel from plate the heat number stamped on the piece of plate should be transferred prior to cutting the plate. . plates must be made and attached with the required markings. They may be transferred immediately after cutting if a provision for control of such transfers has been made in the Manufacturer's Quality Control System.UG-77 Material Identification Overview For instance.

such as heads.UG-77 Material Identification Overview If a Code vessel manufacturer buys parts that are formed. etc. the part Manufacturer must supply a Partial Data Report. In addition. The markings of the Part Manufacturer must be present on the part.. A Manufacturer's Partial Data Report is not required if the part was formed or forged. from another. . without the use of welding. the manufacturer of the head shall transfer the markings as applies to the material specification that the part is made from.

3. Plate is the only pressure vessel material that must always have a Mill Test Report (MTR) or Certificate of Compliance (C of C) provided. pipe marked SA-106 gr. which would affect the safety of the vessel. The inspector shall examine these documents for compliance to the material specification. For example. All other product forms must be marked in accordance with their material specification. .UG-93 Inspection of Materials Page 78 Section VIII The highlights of this paragraph are as follows: 1. 2. All materials to be used in a vessel must be inspected before fabrication to find as best as is possible defects. B. The following describes the inspections required.

e. d. must be examined for surface cracks. When forming a Category C corner joint as shown in fig.2 with flat plate thicker than 1/2 in. b. shearing cracks. UW 13. etc. Cut edges of and parts made from rolled plate for serious laminations. Materials. c.. which will be impact tested.UG-93 Inspection of Materials a. The inspector must assure himself that thickness and other dimensions of the material comply with the requirements of this Division. The inspector must verify welded repairs to defects. the flat plate must be examined before welding by magnetic particle or dye penetrant nondestructive examination. .

NDE etc. .UG-93 Inspection of Materials f. perform internal and external inspections and witness pressure tests. The inspector must verify that all required tests have been performed and are acceptable (impact tests. g. The inspector must confirm that there are no dimensional or material defects.).D. h.'s have been properly transferred. The inspector must confirm material I.

UG-116 Required Marking Page 87 Section VIII The marking applied to a vessel's nameplate or directly to its shell are described in this paragraph. . In some cases the Name Plate is missing or sand blasted and not readable. Often a vessel's Data Report is lost and the only information that is available is that found on the Name Plate or the shell itself. The following is a listing of what is required by the Code to be present on the Name Plate. It is important information.

If inspected by the Owner/User of the vessel the word USER shall be marked on the vessel. Year built. 5. 4. 7. 3. Minimum design metal temperature __°F at ____psi. Manufacturer's serial number. Name of the manufacturer preceded by the words "Certified by". 6. The type of construction used for the vessel must be marked directly under the Code symbol by the use of the appropriate letter as listed in the Code. The official Code U or UM symbol. . 2.UG-116 Required Marking 1. Maximum allowable working pressure ____psi at __°F.

If a vessel is built using more than one type of construction all shall be indicated.UG-116 Required Marking 8. If a vessel is in a special service the lettering as shown below must be applied. The MAWP must be based on the most restrictive part of the vessel. 11. the marking must be as follows: . Lethal Service L b. a. When a complete vessel or parts of a vessel of welded construction have been radiographed in accordance with UW-11. Direct Firing DF 10. Unfired Steam Boiler UB c. 9.

. c. b. chambers that neither exceed NPS 10 nor 1-1/8 inch thickness have been radiographically examined for their full length in a manner prescribed in UW 51. "RT 2" Complete vessel satisfies UW-11(a)(5) and UW. other than B and C associated with nozzles and comm..UG-116 Required Marking   a. may be recorded…. d. "RT 3" Complete vessel satisfies spot radiography of UW-11(b). "RT 4" When only part of the vessel satisfies any of the above. . full radiography of the above exempted Category B and C butt welds if performed. "RT 1" when all pressure retaining butt welds.11(a)(5)(b) has been applied.

"PART" b. Name of the Manufacturer c. Code symbol must be applied after hydro or pneumatic test. The letters HT must be used when the entire vessel has been Postweld heat treated. The manufacturer's serial number. 15. Parts of vessels for which Partial Data Report are required shall be marked by the parts manufacturer with the following: a. 14. 13. . The letter PHT when only part of the vessel has received partial Postweld heat treatment.UG-116 Required Marking 12.

and tamper resistant mechanical fasteners of metal construction. The types of acceptable attachment types include welding. of the vessel and must be thick enough to resist distortion when stamping is applied. Adhesive attachments may be used if the provisions of Appendix 18 are met. An additional nameplate may be used if it is marked with the words "DUPLICATE". On previous tests some questions have come from this paragraph. brazing. The nameplate must be located within 30 in.UG-119 Nameplates Page 91 Section VIII In this paragraph are the details of nameplates. including such things as the size and methods of markings allowed. .

A single Data Report may represent all vessel made in the same day production run if they meet all of the requirements listed in UG-120. The manufacturer must either keep a copy of the Data Report on file for 5 years or register the vessel and file the Data Report with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors. The Manufacturer and the Inspector must sign them. . A copy of the Manufacturer's Data Report must be furnished to the User and upon request the Inspector.UG-120 Data Reports Page 92 Data Reports must prepared on form U-1 or U-1A for all vessels that the Code Symbol will be applied to.
