The American Society of Mechanical Engineers' (ASME) B31.3 Process Piping Code is considered to be the international standard for piping in processing plants.
The Code is used for piping typically found in petroleum refineries; chemical, pharmaceutical, textile, paper, semiconductor, and cryogenic plants; and related process plants and terminals.
This three-day course, facilitated by an international expert from the USA, provides an introduction to the Code, covering the requirements for the design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing and inspection of process piping systems.
You will also explore the rules for various components including fittings, connections, bends, valves and specialty components and look at trends in Code changes and how they could affect your work and projects.
Upon completion you will be aware of the requirements to safely design process piping to U.S. standards. You will also be able to identify the issues to take into consideration when designing process piping; explain the pressure design of piping and relevant components; analyse piping flexibility and gauge the limitations of piping and relevant components; and identify pipe supports, leak testing, piping failures and their causes.
Who should attend?
Engineers, designers, managers, quality personnel, and manufacturers who are involved in the design, manufacture, fabrication, examination, inspection and/or testing of process piping.
