INTRODUCTION

Pressure Vessels, Tanks and Piping Systems are very important equipment for oil, gas and petrochemical industry. This EuroMaTech Pressure Vessels, Tanks and Piping Systems Using API 579-1 and ASME FFS Standards training course will enable delegates to learn how to apply API 579-1 / ASME FFS-1 codes “Fitness-for-Service” to evaluate the integrity and quantify the remaining life of stationary equipment including pressure vessels, storage tanks, piping systems. Proper implementation of those codes ensures minimum down time and maintenance costs through cost effective run-repair-replace decisions and select the appropriate repair options.

Key highlights of this EuroMaTech training course are:

  • Understanding design, operation and maintenance strategies for stationary equipment
  • Identification of failure modes and material degradation mechanisms: stress corrosion, cracks, blisters, in the framework of API 579 / ASME FFS
  • Methodology for quantitative evaluation of remaining life of the equipment based on its fitness for service
  • Integrity of stationary equipment based on material properties of strength and toughness
  • Application of fitness-for-service methodology for optimization of maintenance and repairs
TRAINING OBJECTIVES
  • Understand factor of safety and P-F graphs for pressure vessels, tanks and pipelines
  • Outline the latest techniques of assessing the fitness-for-service of pressure vessels, tanks and piping systems, advantages and limitations
  • Acquire a methodology for quantitative evaluation of the remaining life of equipment
  • Choose and implement cost-effective run-repair-replace decisions based on API 579 / ASME codes
  • Learn how to assess defects in pressure vessels, storage tanks and piping systems

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
  • Pipelines, tanks and pressure vessels operation and maintenance professionals
  • Integrity management and reliability engineers
  • Corrosion and materials engineers
  • Plant and project engineers
  • Inspection engineers for pressure equipment and piping systems
Training methodology
TRAINING METHODOLOGY

This Best Practices on Pressure Vessels, Tanks and Piping Systems Using API 579-1 and ASME FFS Standards training course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, and interactive worked examples. The emphasis in the course will be on explanation of all technical phenomena and providing answers to problems that are encountered in everyday industrial practice. Each learning point will be reinforced with practical examples. There will be a plenty of opportunities for active discussions and sharing experiences.

TRAINING SUMMARY

This EuroMaTech Pressure Vessels, Tanks and Piping Systems Using API 579-1 and ASME FFS Standards training course will provide practical knowledge and experience in evaluating the integrity and overall fitness for service of stationary equipment. It will provide a method of determining the remaining life of pressure vessels, storage tanks, piping systems and pipelines. The training course will also cover basic principles of application of API579 -ASME Code rules related to material properties that are important for consideration of stresses and fractures when making important decision about equipment regarding options: run or repair or replace.
