What is Appurtenant Material?

10/13/2013 8:22 AM

"API 650 Clause 4.2.2 a) ASTM A36M/A36 for plates to a maximum thickness of 40 mm (1.5 in.). None of the specifications for the appurtenant materials listed in Table 1 of ASTM A36M/A36 are considered acceptable for tanks constructed under this standard unless it is expressly stated in this standard that the specifications are acceptable."


I would like to know ,what is appurtenant materials?

I know shell plates, bottom plates, annular plates. But I am clueless about appurtenant material. Appurtenant is different from shell,annular and bottom plates or it is a general terminology to mention the plate used for shell,annular and bottom? I am new to API 650 code and heavily working in it to understand the code.Any experienced hand in tank design or fabrication can help me to understand my doubt.

Thanks

Thanks for the link,I already goolged for the meaning of 'appurtenant materials' mentioned in American Petrochemical Institute Sixfifty. But no convincing answer from any where. Your answer is just the meaning of word 'appurtenant' and it can be used in English literature class.

Here's what I got when I googled "Table 1 of ASTM A36M/A36". Now, what part of appurtenant don't you understand?

3. Appurtenant Materials
3.1 When components of a steel structure are identified with this ASTM designation but the product form is not listed in the scope of this specification, the material shall conform to one of the standards listed in Table 1 unless otherwise specified by the purchaser.

Thanks a trillion for the info. and your effort, but you are too late I found that table yesterday itself in American Society of Metallurgical Engineers Broiler and Pleasure Vessel Code,Section One, Part A,Non Ferrous Material Specification,SA36/SA36M, Close 3. Moreover, Other experienced guys in this forum precisely explained it yesterday itself.

With Best Regards

I think appurtenant materials would be those not actually used for fluid containment, but for supports, stiffeners, etc. Does API 650 have a glossary?

I think the clueless poster has found a way to have a singular, circular conversation with "themselves".

I think we should leave it alone........................................................

I'm willing to give some benefit of doubt to the OP. Code language is sometimes quite unclear.

From memory, ASTM A36M/A36, Table 1 lists some ASTM specifications for other materials that are considered to be equivalent. This clause says, "It is not equivalent unless we say so in this (the API) specification."

These would be the materials listed whose characteristics are not acceptable for the standard to which you would adhere to, for the project you are constructing....

(I attempted to post this previously but it doesn't seem to have reached CR4 - apologies if you are seeing this for a second time)

Without claiming to know API 650, wouldn't it simply be the materials that appurtenances are made of? This link (although specific to a bulk liquid fertilizer example) may help with understanding appurtenances:

LAW Writer® Ohio Laws and Rules

http://codes.ohio.gov/oac/901%3A5-2-01

(M) "Appurtenances" means plumbing, pumps, valves, gauges, fittings, seals, hoses, metering devices, mixing containers, and portable manufacturing units which are connected to a permanent storage vessel, or which are used to transfer bulk liquid fertilizer into or out of a permanent storage vessel.

guilty of web searching definitions:

http://www.info.com/search?qkw=appurtenant&qcat=web

appurtenance being less significant than what it belongs to,

- but may be however specified

Something that is an accessory to something but not an integral part of it is an appurtenance
