Description

Instructors

Length: 4 days    CEUs: 3.00    PDHs: 30.00

This course provides an introduction to the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code. It covers the requirements of B31.3 for design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing and inspection of process piping systems. It explores the rules for various components including fittings, connections, bends, valves and specialty components.  Other topics include dimensions and ratings of components, fluid service requirements for joints, piping flexibility and support, welding, heat treatment, bending and forming, brazing and soldering, assembly, erection, examination and inspection.

Each student will receive a copy of the B31.3 Process Piping Design codebook. 

On completion of this course, you will be able to:
 - Identify the responsibilities of personnel involved in the design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of process piping
 - Describe the scope and technical requirements of the ASME B31.3 Code
 - Apply and implement the quality requirements that are defined in the ASME B31.3 Code.

Special Requirement
Each student must bring his or her own calculator.

Instructors

Robert Kauer (Dipl.-Ing., Dr.-Ing.) received his engineering degree at the Technical University of München in 1991. Since earning his degrees, he has been working in the field of pressure vessel and piping technology, starting as an R&D engineer at the Institute of PVP Design, Experimental Stress Analysis and Plant Engineering in Munich.

Throughout his service at TÜV SÜD, Dr. Kauer has handled various national and international projects related to design, structural reliability, Fitness for Service, and inspection programme development for nuclear and non-nuclear applications in pressure vessel and piping technlogy. He is an ASME Authorized Inspector Supervisor and is member of various national and European committees. Currently, Dr. Kauer is responsible for Consulting Projects related to Fitness for Service, Asset Integrity and Process Safety Excellence at TÜV SÜD Industry Service, in Munich.

Jim E. Meyer, P.E., has over 40 years of experience in refining petrochemical, chemical, power generation and industrial facilities. He is a principal engineer at Louis Perry and Associates, a full service engineering and architectural firm, located in Wadsworth Ohio. Jim is experienced in overall project coordination/management, pressure equipment, piping design, analysis, specifications, support design, mechanical system requirements and documentation requirements. In particular, areas of his technical competence include ASME piping and pressure vessel codes, stress analysis, field troubleshooting piping system support, vibration, and expansion problems.

Jim is a member of ASME and has been involved in the ASME B31.1 and ASME B31.3 Section committees for over 35 years. He is currently Chair of the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Section Committee, Chair of the ASME B31 Standards Committee, and serves on the ASME Board on Pressure Technology Codes and Standards. Jim has also served as Chair of ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code Section Committee.

Most recently, Jim co-authored chapters in the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Companion Guide, 4th Edition, covering the ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code and the B31.3 Process Piping Code. Past projects and work experience has involved major oil refineries, petrochemical plants, fossil, nuclear, solar and alternative energy generation, as well as cryogenic and vacuum test facilities.

George Antaki, P.E., Becht Engineering, is a Fellow of ASME, with over 40 years of experience in pressure equipment. He is an ASME Fellow, internationally recognized for his expertise in design, analysis, and fitness-for-service evaluation of pressure equipment and piping systems. He is the Chairman of ASME B31 Mechanical Design Committee, Chairman of ASME III Working Group Piping Design, member of the ASME III Subgroup Component Design, ASME QME, and ASME Operation and Maintenance Subgroup Piping. He is the author of three textbooks on the subject of pressure equipment design and integrity evaluation, including Fitness-for-Service for Piping, Vessels, and Tanks.

Mr. Antaki earned his degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Liege, Belgium in 1975, and his Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 1985.

Hugo Julien, P.Eng., began his career, in the field of pressure equipment and storage tanks, as Designer and Quality Manager at HC Vidal Ltd. (1998 to 2002). He then worked as Quality Systems Manager at Xebec, Inc. (2002 to 2007). Since 2007, he has been the Mechanical Integrity Advisor at GCM Consultants. An active ASME/CSA member, he is also a certified API 510, API 570, API 571, and CSA W178.2 Level II (CSA B31.3, ASME W47.1/W59, and CSA Z662) inspector.

Mr. Julien graduated from l’École Polytechnique de Montréal (1997) in Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Manufacturing. He is a member of the following professional engineering associations: Quebec (OIQ), Ontario (PEO), British Columbia (APEGBC), Alberta (APEGA), Saskatchewan (APEGS), and Newfoundland/Labrador (PEGNL).
