Re: Air Receiver Rerating
The rules and the steps you need to go through for rerating are outlined in API 510. The first thing you need is to perform the design calcs to show it is good for the pressure rating based on the current inspection status of the vessel. If you meet all the steps laid out in API 510 and you want to affix a new re-rating you do of course also need an API 510 Certified Inspector involved in the process.

You also need to cehck that the process is acceptable to any regulatory or jurisdictional rules applicable where the vessel is to be operated.
