Length: 1 days
This two-day MasterClass provides a foundation of knowledge necessary for those responsible for assuring the mechanical integrity of existing piping systems, as well as those responsible for designing and constructing new piping systems. The program presents background on fundamental causes of piping vibration and describes how to identify sources of vibration. Rules of thumb and simplified methods for evaluating vibration severity, as well as methods of treatment are discussed. A wide variety of causes of vibration will be explored in detail in order to enable the participant to evaluate the variety of piping vibration problems that can occur in piping systems, properly.
Upon completion, attendees will be able to
- Identify the probable causes of piping vibration, and determine if vibration is likely to be excessive
- Recommend methods to correct the problem if the vibration is excessive
Who Should Attend
Engineers, senior designers, maintenance, quality assurance, inspection and manufacturing personnel who work with process piping (e.g., in the chemical, petroleum, plastic processing, pulp and paper fields), will find this masterclass to be an essential resource and time-saving means to gain an understanding of piping vibration causes and remedies.
Participants are encouraged to bring examples of troublesome vibration problems they have experienced or are experiencing for class discussion.
This Master Class is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic understanding of at least one of the ASME B31 piping codes
