Length: 1 days
This course is a combination of “Bolted Joints and Gasket Behavior” (PD539), “Design of Bolted Flange Joints” (PD386) and “Bolted Joint Assembly Principles Per PCC-1 — 2019 ” (PD577). Take these courses as a combo and save up to $1,485.
VCPD539 — Bolted Joints and Gasket Behavior
Gain an overview of bolted joint fundamentals, whether gasketed or not, including behavior and troubleshooting. Participants will take a more detailed look at the latest development on gasketed joint assembly, torque factors, bolting patterns, and gasket behavior, tightness, selection and specification. This course is intended for practicing design and manufacturing professionals involved in the assembly of electro-mechanical hardware components of any size. Each participant will receive a copy of the book, An Introduction to the Design and Behavior of Bolted Joints, 3rd Edition, by John Bickford. Please bring a scientific calculator to class.
VCPD386 — Design of Bolted Flange Joints
This course specifically reviews the different flange types and facings used in pressure vessel and piping industries, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each. Participants are introduced to the various ASME codes and standards applicable to pressure vessels, piping and flanges and how to use them to design for internal and external loads. Participants will receive the textbook, Gaskets and Gasketed Joints, by John H. Bickford. Please bring a scientific calculator to class.
VCPD577 — Bolted Joint Assembly Principles Per ASME PCC-1 — 2019
This course will train and test bolting personnel at the supervisory level on the technological and practical problems of assembling bolted joints in large scale industrial applications. Participants enjoy interactive instruction, a student manual with resource materials (which includes a 1-year subscription to the most comprehensive on-line bolting library on the web), and in-class demonstrations.
Please see individual course descriptions for more information.
Who Should Attend
Engineers involved in the design, construction or maintenance of pressurized equipment utilizing flanged joints for the petroleum, refining, chemical, power, and process industries.
Practicing design and manufacturing professionals involved in assembly of electro-mechanical hardware as well as engineers and technicians in design and assembly operations. Two years of engineering experience would be beneficial, but is not necessary.
