API 510 Inspection


API 510 covers the in-service inspection, repair, alteration, and rerating activities for pressure vessels and the pressure-relieving devices protecting these vessels. This inspection code applies to all refining and chemical process vessels that have been placed in service unless specifically excluded.
This includes:

  • Vessels constructed in accordance with an applicable construction code.
  • Vessels constructed without a construction code (non-code)—A vessel not fabricated to a recognized construction code and meeting no known recognized standard.
  • Vessels constructed and approved as jurisdictional special based upon jurisdiction acceptance of particular design, fabrication, inspection, testing, and installation.
  • Non-standard vessels—A vessel fabricated to a recognized construction code but has lost its nameplate or stamping.
