ASME B31.3 & API 570 Piping Design and Inspection

25th July 2016


This course is composed of two sections. The first section discusses the design requirements for process plant piping systems. The second section discusses the maintenance requirements for these systems. In each case, the course goes beyond merely repeating the material contained in the governing standards and discusses practical applications and typical procedures. The course also contains sample problems that are worked together and written exercises that are completed by the participants.


Who Should Attend

This course is directed to engineers who are responsible for the mechanical design and maintenance of process plant pressure piping systems to ASME B31.3 and API 570.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to apply the design requirements of ASME B31.3 and the maintenance requirements of API-570 to process plant piping systems. They will also be able to perform engineering audits of designs and procedures that have been developed by others.


Why You Should Attend

The course emphasis is on developing a practical understanding of the mechanical design of pressure piping systems in process plant applications. Sample problems and participant exercises are included throughout the course to illustrate the concepts discussed and provide the attendees with practice in applying them.
