The course is aimed at plant engineers, non-destructive testing engineers, materials and corrosion engineers, plant inspectors responsible for managing the integrity of ageing process equipment, pipelines, boilers and storage tanks.
It is recommended that attendees have a knowledge of either the inspection, design, fabrication, operation or maintenance of process equipment and piping, as well as some knowledge of the most common pressure equipment design codes/standards.
Extensive overview of API 510 "Body of Knowledge" , inspection intervals, corrosion allowances, joint efficiencies, static head and pressure calculations, impact testing, weld size determination , concepts of reinforcement, degradation mechanisms, remaining life calculations, ASME VIII, ASME IX welding and ASME V NDE requirements.
At the end of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the requirements of API 510 "Body of Knowledge"
- Understand the requirements for maintenance, inspection, repair and alteration of pressure vessels
- Review inspection data and determine the internal and external inspection intervals in relation to metal loss, corrosion rates and remaining service life
- Capable of calculating corrosion rates, static head, internal/external pressure and pressure test requirements
- Determine weld size for attachment welds at openings and Nozzle reinforcement requirements
Five day training course. Examination is to be booked separately and can be taken at any TWI Training Centre.
Candidates should bring the API examination standard packs before attending the training course. These can be purchased directly from API.
