The mechanical integrity and reliability of process equipment and piping systems can only be achieved if they are designed by competent engineers and operated and maintained effectively within the design envelope, namely, the integrity operating window (IOW).
This course provides the appropriate mix of fundamentals, methodologies, best industry practices, and practical tools to enhance the competencies and improve the performance of design, operation, and maintenance technical professionals individually and collectively to add value to the organization and improve the plant safety and reliability
- Technical Professionals
- Operations and Maintenance Personnel
- Maintenance of Oil & Gas Plants
- Oil Refineries & Petrochemical Plants, and Power Plants
At the end of this course the participants will be able to:
- Increase awareness and understanding that mechanical integrity of process equipment and piping systems depends jointly on the proper design, operation, condition assessment, and maintenance of the equipment, underscoring their vital individual and team roles in managing change.
- Explore practical and sound methods and tools to enable them to carry out basic design calculations for pressure equipment following applicable industrial codes, standards, and best practices.
- Understand the degradation mechanisms that process equipment could be subjected to over their operating life, how to identify them, predict and determine their impact, and what appropriate measures can be taken to prevent and control the resultant damage.
- Gain the knowledge and failure analysis skills they need to conduct damage and failure analysis to prevent similar failures from happening.
- Gain the knowledge and skills of the hazard identification and analysis, and in risk assessment and management.
- Working knowledge in mechanical design of pressure equipment and piping systems in compliance with applicable codes, standards, and regulations – ASME B&PVC Section VIII, B31.3
- The inter-dependence of design, operation, and maintenance for achieving mechanical integrity of pressure equipment and piping systems
- Understanding, prediction and Identification and assessment of active degradation mechanisms and the failures they may cause
- Failure investigation techniques and root cause analysis
- Application of risk-based methodologies in inspection and maintenance – API 580
- NDT methods and their effective application – ASMEB&PVC Section V
- Performing Level 1 fitness-for-service assessments – API 579
- Engineering materials properties and selection criteria for specific applications
- Hazard identification and risk analysis and management
IN HOUSE AND ONLINE TRAINING
While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
