This course trains participants to comply with the requirements of ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code. This course specifically focuses on requirements from fabrication and examination to maintenance, including materials and welding qualifications – all vital elements of the power, industrial and institutional plant lifecycle.
 
The key objective of this course is to examine how various stakeholders employ the B31.1 Code requirements to effectively construct and maintain power piping systems, prevent piping system failures, and ensure a higher degree of system reliability.
 
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Identify materials selection and limitations, fabrication rules and their bases
  • Explain welding qualification requirements, inspection, examination, and testing requirements
  • Identify the Code requirements for power piping maintenance

 Who should attend?

  • Engineers within the piping construction and maintenance field
  • practicing piping engineers requiring background on Code compliance and trends
  • piping fabricators and suppliers wishing to understand the relationship of fabrication and manufacture to the design and construction of piping systems
  • QA/QC personnel

Topics covered in this course include:

  • Materials, Fabrication & Examination
  • Materials-Control and Selection
  • Metallurgy – Steels
  • Fabrication of Piping Systems
  • Welding Qualifications
  • Inspection, Examination, & Testing
  • Materials, Fabrication, & Examination Workshop

 Course Materials (included in purchase of course)

  • Each attendee will receive a digital copy of the B31.1 Power Piping Code (for the duration of the course)
  • Digital course notes via ASME’s Learning Platform

Special Requirements (not included with course, purchase separately)

  • Attendees are required to bring a scientific calculator to the course.

This ASME Virtual Classroom course is held live with an instructor on our online learning platform.  Certificate of completion will be issued to registrants who successfully attend and complete the course.

Instructors

Joe W. Frey, P.E., is a consulting engineer with over 37 years of experience in the installation, inspection, maintenance, and repair of piping systems. He has specialized in emergency response to failures, providing fitness for service (FFS) evaluations, repair plans, and path forward assistance for catastrophic failures in piping and coal silos. Mr. Frey also has extensive experience in fire damage assessment in refineries and chemical plants. He has served as Vice Chair of the B31 Code committee and chair of B31.1, and is a member of numerous other piping code subcommittees. Mr. Frey has been instrumental in sponsoring changes in the Code requirements addressing piping maintenance.
 
Hugo Julien, P.Eng., began his career, in the field of pressure equipment, pipeline and storage tanks, as Designer and Quality Manager at HC Vidal Ltd. (1998 to 2002) a pressure equipment and boiler manufacturer.  He then worked as Quality Systems Manager at Xebec, Inc. (2002 to 2007) another pressure equipment manufacturer.  From 2007 to 2019, he has been the Mechanical Integrity Advisor at GCM Consultants, an engineering firm.  Since January 2019, he has been working for CEP Forensic as a Forensic Engineer, where he investigates the causes of rupture, leakage, explosion, etc. 
 
An active associated member CSA B51, he is 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 of Montréal (1997) in Mechanical Engineering.
 
John P. Swezy, Jr. has over 35 years of experience in steam and combustion driven prime mover electrical generation plants and associated engineering auxiliary systems, and over 20 years of experience in developing and implementing detailed procedures, work instructions, and QC programs for design, welded fabrication, repairs, and alterations of pressure equipment following ASME, B31, NBIC, API, DOT and various International Codes and Standards.  He also has extensive experience in the area of nondestructive examination.  
 
Mr. Swezy has been a member of various ASME Codes & Standards Committees since 1996.  He is a National Board Commissioned Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspector and an American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector (CWI). He is recognized for his expertise with the ASME Code rules of Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2 as they apply to toughness, fabrication, and examination of pressure vessels.  He is past Chair of the Subgroup on Toughness, newly elected as Chair of the Subgroup on Fabrication and Examination, and member of the Standards Committee for Pressure Vessels. He is also a member of the Standards Committee for Welding, Brazing, and Fusing; the ASME B31 Piping Standards Committee; and is Chair of the B31 Fabrication and Examination Technical Committee. John was presented the ASME Dedicated Service Award in 2013.
