SAIMC: Johannesburg branch

May 2024 SAIMC


Sagadevan Kanniappen, sales application specialist for WIKA South Africa.

At the meeting of the Johannesburg branch of the SAIMC held on 10 April 2024, Sagadevan Kanniappen, sales application specialist for WIKA South Africa, delivered a presentation on the ASME Performance Test Code 19.3. This was a highly technical topic covering the design and strength evaluation of thermowell machined from solid bar. The presentation covered the history of the PTC 19.3 standard, which touched on the Monju Nuclear Power Station incident in Japan 1995, then thermowell design guidelines, and also the application of the PTC 19.3 using the WAKE frequency calculation. The presentation concluded by discussing de-bottlenecking and the importance of design re-evaluation. The audience thoroughly enjoyed this interesting and relevant topic. The SAIMC would like to thank WIKA Instruments for sponsoring the technology evening and Sagadevan for presenting.
