Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-ofthe-art simulators. The latest ASME Post-Construction Code is an extension of the current API standards for Risk-BasedInspection (API 580, API 581), Fitness-For-Service assessment (API 579), Damage Mechanisms (API 571) and repairs. They are a practical and important addition to the ASME design and construction codes, their objective is to prevent failures by timely detection and analysis of degraded conditions, and application of the right repair technique. In this highly practical course, participants will learn how to (1) plan inspections, (2) evaluate inspection results and calculate the remaining life of corroded and degraded equipment, and (3) select and implement the right repair by applying the new ASME Post-Construction Codes (PCC). The course will follow the same outline as the ASME PCC Codes, making the course notes a practical and handy reference to illustrate and explain the various requirements of the new ASME PCC codes. Further, the course will review the recommended practices of API 579 and API 571 and how they can be applied on Fitness-for-Service and damage mechanisms affecting process plant equipment. This course is design to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of API-579 FFS and ASME PCC 2 repair practices. It covers the scope and limitations of API 579, fitness-for-service engineering assessment procedure, remaining life assessment and concept of remaining strength factor; the remediation methods including in-service monitoring, assessment techniques and acceptance criteria and the identification and characterization of damage mechanisms; the various methods of FFS assessments and their application to plant equipment/piping; assessing pitting corrosion and proper selection of pitting charts; the ASME PCC-2 standard as well as the applicability and limitations of repair methods covered by ASME PCC-2; the application of welded repairs and mechanical repairs for non-welding repairs; and the NACE standards, material selection and requirements for piping link to course overview PDF
