Pressure, maximum working

The maximum total pressure permissible in a device under any circumstances during operation, at a specified temperature. It is the highest pressure to which it will be subjected in the process. It is a designed safe limit for regular use. NOTE: MWP can be arrived at by two methods: a) designed-by adequate design analysis, with a safety factor; b) tested-by rupture testing of typical samples.
