3.1.17 diverter spool Device to direct an uncontrolled flow which may generate from a shallow zone during well drilling activities. NOTE A diverter spool is used on a surface application below a diverter prior to the installation of blowout prevention equipment. 3.1.18 diverter system Assemblage of an annular sealing device, flow control means, and overboard system components which facilitates closure of the upward flow path of the well fluid and opening of the overboard line to divert the fluid flow to the environment away from the rig floor. NOTE Components include, but not limited to, diverter, diverter control system, valve(s), side outlets, and flow/overboard lines. 3.1.19 end connection Integral male or female thread; clamp hub end connector or flange, studded or through-bolted, or any other means used to join together equipment that contains or controls pressure. 3.1.20 equivalent round Standard for comparing various shaped sections to round bars, in determining the response to hardening characteristics when heat-treating low-alloy and martensitic corrosion-resistant steel. 3.1.21 fill-up line Line connected into the bell nipple or diverter housing allowing drilling fluid to be added to the hole. 3.1.22 flange Protruding rim, with holes to accept bolts and having a sealing mechanism, used to join pressure-containing equipment. 3.1.23 flow-direction-controlling member System component that contains and directs wellbore fluid flow. 3.1.24 flow selector Three-way valve with switchable target designed to divert wellbore fluids while keeping a diverter overboard line always open. 3.1.25 flow line Piping that exits the bell nipple or diverter housing, and conducts drilling fluid and cuttings to the mud processing equipment. 3.1.26 flow line seal Elastomeric element that creates a seal between the diverter housing and diverter assembly. 3.1.45 product history file PHF Composite file of records from a traceable API product which includes all records associated with the API product repair and remanufacturing, including certification records required by this Standard. 3.1.46 rated load Nominal applied loading conditions used during design, analysis, and testing based on maximum anticipated service load. 3.1.47 rated working pressure Maximum internal pressure that the equipment is designed to contain or control or a combination thereof. 3.1.48 technical authority Competent and technically qualified person or organization with evidence to demonstrate the expertise, skills, and experience regarding design, quality, and manufacturing processes necessary to perform the required verification(s). 3.1.49 relevant indication Surface NDE indication (Liquid penetrant or magnetic particle examination) with a major dimension greater than 1.6 mm (0.062 in.). NOTE Inherent indications not associated with a surface rupture are considered non-relevant indications. 3.1.50 remanufacture Activity involving disassembly, reassembly and testing of equipment, with or without the replacement of parts, in which machining, welding, heat treating or other manufacturing operations are employed. 3.1.51 repair Activity involving disassembly, reassembly, or replacement of components and testing of equipment after the failure of a piece of equipment. NOTE Repair does not include machining, welding, heat treating or other manufacturing operations. 3.1.52 rounded indication For liquid penetrant or magnetic particle examination—any indication that is approximately circular or elliptical and whose length is less than three times its width. For radiographic examination—any indication with a maximum length of three times the width or less on the radiograph. NOTE Indications may be circular, elliptical, conical or irregular in shape and may have tails. When evaluating the size of an indication, the tail is included.
3.1.54 stabilized For pressure testing—state in which the initial pressure-decline rate has decreased to within a specified rate. NOTE 1 Pressure decline can be caused by such things as changes in temperature, setting of elastomer seals or compression of air trapped in the equipment being tested. For temperature testing—state in which the initial temperature fluctuations have decreased to within a specified range. NOTE 2 Temperature fluctuation can be caused by such things as mixing of different-temperature fluids, convection or conduction. 3.1.55 stress relief Controlled heating of material to a predetermined temperature for the purpose of reducing any residual stresses. 3.1.56 studded connection Connection in which thread-anchored studs are screwed into tapped holes. 3.1.57 subsea diverter Diverter system installed above marine drilling riser. 3.1.58 surface diverter Diverter system not installed above marine drilling riser. 3.1.59 target flange Bull plug or blind flange to prevent erosion at a point where change in flow direction occurs. 3.1.60 targeted Refers to a fluid piping system in which flow impinges upon an erosion-resistant end (target flange) when fluid transits a change in direction.
