The primary objective of this course is to provide insight into the rules relating to the ASME B31.3 Fabrication and Examination code requirements. Further, it illustrates the relationship of the Fabrication & Examination rules to the Design and Materials rules. Featuring examples of real-world scenarios that have occurred as a result of misunderstanding the relationship of the ASME code to design rules and materials selection, this course ensures participants have critical insight into best practices for piping system fabrication and examination.   

By participating in this course, you will learn how to successfully:

  • Describe the materials selection process and limitations 
  • Identify fabrication rules and their bases 
  • Describe the relationship between B31.3 design and the fabrication & examination requirements 
  • Explain the welding qualification requirements 
  • Identify the inspection, examination, and testing requirements

Who should attend?
Piping engineers and designers, fabricators and erectors, QA/QC personnel, engineers and maintenance personnel who desire a more in depth understanding of the Fabrication and Examination rules of the B31.3 Code covering process plant piping systems. 

Topics covered:

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