Is it for me?

This course is for you as a plant engineer, non-destructive testing engineer, materials and corrosion engineer, or plant inspector responsible for managing the integrity of ageing process equipment, pipelines, boilers and storage tanks.

It is recommended that you 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.

What will I learn?

This 5-day course provides an extensive overview of API 510 "Body of Knowledge", inspection intervals, corrosion allowances, joint efficiencies, static head and pressure calculations, and impact testing. You will also be taught about weld size determination , concepts of reinforcement, degradation mechanisms, remaining life calculations, ASME VIII, ASME IX welding and ASME V NDE requirements.

What will I leave with?

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
