ASME B31.3 Process Piping 2010, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 31-Mar-2011, 400 pages, Description ASME B31.3 Process Piping :
Rules for piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related processing plants and terminals. This code prescribes requirements for materials and components, design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of piping.

This ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code applies to piping for all fluids including:
1) raw, intermediate, and finished chemicals;
2) petroleum products;
3) gas, steam, air and water;
4) fluidized solids;
5) refrigerants; and
6) cryogenic fluids.
Also included is piping which interconnects pieces or stages within a packaged equipment assembly.
