API 936 Design & Inspection Of Refractory Materials

3rd December 2014


Special Preparatory Course for API 936 Exams

This course discusses the design, installation, repair of refractory systems for processing & power general applications in pressure vessels, piping systems, and fired equipment. The discussions include practical examples of refractory systems in demanding applications (such as FCCU’s, Fluid Cokers, process vessels, fired heaters and steam generation equipment) and are illustrated by photos and a video.

The course will present these topics in the context of API Recommended Practice 936 Guidelines for Refractory Installation Quality Control. Attendees will be well prepared to challenge the API 936 Inspector certification exam upon completion of this course.

Benefit Of Attending

  • Analyse how properties such as erosion, corrosion, thermal shock, mechanical abuse, overheating and chemical attack contribute to refractory design & failures
  • Reduce failures in refractory applications
  • Optimise the design & evaluation of refractory systems
  • Understand refractory failure mechanisms
  • Learn in detail factors affecting refractory performance
  • Manage pre-turnaround planning for greater efficiency
  • Case Study Driven – 8 case studies to help you understand what can go wrong

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for individuals who are responsible for the design, installation, inspection, or repair, managing refractory projects and maintenance of refractory systems in the hydrocarbon processing (HPI), chemical & petrochemical, oil sands, heavy oil and power generation industries.
