ASME PCC-2 - Repair of Pressure Equipment and Piping

Last update: Jan 16, 2017

ASME PCC-2, Repair of Pressure Equipment and Piping, is a standard developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and provides methods for repairing equipment and piping within the scope of ASME Pressure Technology Codes and Standards after it has been placed into service. These repair methods include relevant design, fabrication, examination, and testing practices and may be temporary or permanent, depending on the circumstances. The methods provided in this standard address the repair of components when repair is deemed necessary based on appropriate inspection and flaw assessment. These inspection and flaw evaluation methods are not covered in this document, but are covered in other post-construction codes and standards.
