Length: 2 days CEUs: 1.20 PDHs: 12.00
This course commences around 1PM on the first day of the course.
A comprehensive, supplemental course to PD014,"ASME B31.3 Process Piping Design;" this course is designed to illustrate the relationship of the Fabrication & Examination rules of the B31.3 Code to the Design and Materials rules. Examples of problems that occur as a result of not understanding the relationship of the ASME code to design rules and materials selection are featured. The primary goal of this course is to provide insight into the rules relating to the ASME B31.3 Fabrication and Examination code.
You Will Learn
- 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
