Description


COURSE DESCRIPTION

     The Piping Inspection program is designed to equip individuals with broad knowledge base relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic piping systems.


        This program benefits employers and the industry as a whole by helping to:

              • Provide a continued high level of safety through the use of inspectors specialized in

                 process piping

              • Improve management control of process unit inspection, repair, alteration and re rating

              • Reduce the potential for inspection delays resulting from regulatory requirements


COURSE OBJECTIVES

       The course provides participants with the knowledge necessary to:

              • Effectively use major codes: ASME B16.5 & B31.3; ASME B&PV Sections V & IX

              • Perform all basic piping calculations needed for the API exam

                 (e.g.tmin, test pressure, MAWP, MDMT, corrosion rates, remaining life, etc.)

              • Use API’s requirements during inspection, repairs, and alterations of piping

              • Review welding procedures (WPS/PQR) and welder performance qualifications (WPQ)


WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

       Designed for piping inspectors and engineers working in refineries, chemical & industrial plants, gas plants, pipeline terminals, and oil fields.
