Course Description

This practical highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of ASME B31-3 Process Piping Design, Construction and Mechanical Integrity. It covers the ASME B31-3 code and its significance in process piping design; the design, construction and mechanical integrity requirements; designing conditions and parameters in process piping, pressure and temperature calculations and piping components and supports; the material selection criteria and stress analysis methodologies; and the pipe sizing and pressure drop calculations. Further, the course will also discuss the fluid properties and their impact on piping design; the pipe sizing criteria and methods; the pressure drop calculations for single-phase and multiphase flow; selecting piping components based on pressure drop limitations; the piping materials, fabrication and installation; the material selection guidelines and considerations; the manufacturing processes for piping materials, fabrications and installation practices; the welding procedures and inspection requirements; and the non-destructive examination techniques.During this interactive course, participants will learn the flange design and selection; the gasket selection, bolted joint assembly, tightening procedures and flange leakage and testing; the piping system components and specialty items; the instrumentation and control considerations; the pressure testing requirements and procedures; the test medium selection, leak detection methods, test acceptance criteria and documentation and records; the inspection techniques for process piping; the corrosion mechanisms and prevention; the fitness-for-service evaluations and risk-based inspection strategies; the maintenance and repair considerations; the piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) and isometric and orthographic drawings; the material and equipment specifications, piping standards and codes; the documentation control and management, mechanical integrity programs, regulatory requirements and compliance considerations; the risk assessment methodologies and management of change (MOC) procedures; and the auditing evaluation of process piping systems. link to course overview PDF
