5 Days

Ref No:      WC048
Title:          Pipeline: Design Inspection & Testing
Start Date: 30 October 2023 End Date: 03 November 2023
Venue:        London, United Kingdom
Fee:            $6,500

In any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.

The course will review the basic requirements of the ASME B31 Code for Pressure Piping. Topics include: design conditions, pipe sizing, pressure design, flexibility analysis, material, fabrication, examination, testing, and mechanical integrity for existing piping systems, as provided in API 570 Piping Inspection Code.

  • To provide the participant with a complete and up-to-date overview of the area of Piping Technology 
  • The participant will learn the design, fabrication, examination and testing requirements of ASME B31 
  • Familiarizing the participant with the related standards for inspection and repair of piping systems that have been in service, as provided in API 570, Piping Inspection Code 
  • The participant will gain a deep understanding of the physical phenomena which affect the operation, durability of piping systems
  • Participant will learn to calculate the pipe schedule, and pipe size that serve certain application 
  • Participant will learn different methods of pipe inspection and testing based on related Codes and Standards 
  • Participant will exposed to different method of checking pipe flexibility

Engineers and Technicians of mechanical, and chemical engineering background will benefit largely from this workshop. Maintenance, Operation, inspection, and R and D People should also attend this course.
