Process Equipment Integrity



This training program offers comprehensive instruction on inspecting, evaluating, and repairing process plant equipment and connected piping systems. Theoretical learning, participants will learn inspection techniques, evaluation methods, and repair strategies essential for maintaining process plant equipment and piping systems.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the damage and degradation mechanisms that affect process equipment and piping and progressively adversely affect their condition and fitness for continued service.

  • Understand that effective inspection is the backbone of plant integrity and that it has a significant impact on EHS and the financial performance of the company.

  • Increase the awareness of industry codes and best practices related to inspection, repair, and alteration of process equipment and piping including ASME BPVC and various API codes, standards, and recommended practices.

  • Provide a sound and concise coverage of fitness-for-service assessment methodologies and API/ASME FFS standards to enable making run/repair/replace decisions about the damaged equipment/piping.

  • Cover the main industry codes and practices for repairs and alterations to achieve business focused repairs and lower maintenance costs.

  • Provide methodologies for performing fitness-for-service assessments of damaged equipment/piping to make run/repair/replace decisions.

Targeted Audience:

  • Process, Mechanical and Chemical Engineers.

  • Operation and Maintenance Engineers.

  • Project Engineers.
