Course Schedule: This course commences at 9:30 AM and ends at 1:30 PM Eastern each day.
This fundamental course trains participants to comply with the requirements of ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code. This course features a deep overview of the code, including the operations, scope, and criteria to ensure attendees can interpret and apply B31.3 effectively. Topics are enhanced by in-class problem solving, directly applying the rules and equations of the B31.3 Code for specific design and operating conditions to illustrate correct applications.
The key objective of this course is to examine how various stakeholders employ the B31.3 Code requirements to effectively design piping systems and prevent piping system failures.
By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:
- Identify what issues to take into consideration when designing process piping.
- Explain the pressure design of piping and piping components.
- Analyze piping flexibility and gauge the limitations of piping and piping components.
- Identify pipe supports, leak testing, piping failures and their causes.
Who Should Attend?
This course is intended for process piping engineering professionals and employees of related governing entities, including engineers, designers, owners, manufacturers, QA/QC personnel, technicians, inspectors, and maintenance personnel who need an understanding of the requirements for compliance and the trends of Code changes for piping design and analysis, fabrication, examination, and testing. Participants are recommended to have at least 2 years’ experience with piping or pressure vessels.
