Minnesota Board of High Pressure Piping Systems possible amendment to rules governing the Minnesota High Pressure Piping Code, Minnesota Rules, chapter 5230, Revisor’s ID Number R-04739.

The Board of High Pressure Piping Systems is considering rule amendments that will incorporate by reference updated national codes and engineering standards regarding high pressure steam and other heating media piping, ammonia refrigeration piping, bioprocess piping and the welding requirements for these high pressure piping systems. The national codes and standards currently incorporated by reference into Chapter 5230 are not subject to frequent change, but from time to time are updated and republished by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This proposed rulemaking intends to amend those rule parts in Chapter 5230 which incorporate by reference these national codes and standards by updating the rule parts to reflect the most current versions and editions of those national codes and standards.
