ASME PVP 2019 Activities and Tour of Wilfred E. Baker Test Facility
BakerRisk would like to thank our clients and other guests who visited our exhibit booth and attended our technical presentations at the 2019 ASME Pressure Vessels and Piping (PVP) Conference.
The 2019 ASME PVP Conference was held in San Antonio on July 14 – 19, 2019, and focused on pressure vessel and piping technologies for the power and process industries. This international conference included over 180 technical paper and panel sessions, was attended by approximately 900 people, and had an exhibition with relevant companies.
BakerRisk exhibited capabilities in mechanical integrity, reliability, materials engineering, failure analysis, hazards testing and other services. We also had five technical presentations at the conference:
• “Test Facility Technical Tour Presentation” by Matt Edel, Will Lowry and Dan Benac
• “Reactor Vessel Hazard Assessment Case Study” by Matt Edel
• “PVB Blast Load Enhancement Due to Mach Stem” by Will Lowry
• “Blast Attenuation in Tunnels or Pipes with Turns” by Jihui Geng
• “Preventing and Investigating High-Energy Releases and Explosions of Pressure Vessels” by Dan Benac and Matt Edel
On Friday, July 19, BakerRisk hosted approximately 50 conference participants at the 160-acre Wilfred E. Baker Test Facility near San Antonio, Texas.
The tour included a Pressure Failure Case Study Presentation and five hazard demonstration tests for our guests to experience:
o Shock tube blast wave against stiffened metal plate
o Bursting pressure vessel projectile against steel plate
o Flange leak with saturated propane
o Pressure relief valve pop with propane
o Jet fire with saturated propane
