Process Equipment and Piping Systems: Application, Design and Operation

Webinaire / les 6, 7, 8 et 9 mai 2024 /
Code : 15-0509-ONL24



Veuillez noter :
This course is held online over 4 days on the following schedule (All times in Eastern Time Zone):

10:00 am to 6:00 pm Eastern (Will include the usual breaks)

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand equipment design methods based on existing world standards
  • Apply HAZOP, LOPA, and FMEA analysis during design and operation
  • Perform Risk-Based Inspection and analyze results
  • Perform fitness for Service (FFS) analysis
  • Make the run/repair/replace decisions

Components of process equipment and piping systems are subjected to hazardous service conditions and damage mechanisms. This course will enable technical personnel to become familiar with suitable design methods, the selection of quality engineering materials, and the procedures for monitoring and inspecting equipment to detect and assess any damage and malfunction in operation.

The course will present the approach based on a criticality list, including risk-based inspection and corresponding tests focusing on failure mechanisms and prevention techniques. This course will also cover practical aspects of equipment safe and efficient operation, maintenance, and repair techniques, as well as the method of calculation of equipment remaining life.

This course will have several class workshops, including case studies and selected practical, real-world examples to solve in teamwork.

Course Outline

  • Equipment Safety in Design and Operation
