Process Equipment and Piping Systems: Application, Design and Operation

<< Back to Course Catalogue

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

  • Size & select major process equipment for specific applications
  • Improve plant availability & productivity by applying industry standards & best practices
  • Assess the degradation & condition of process equipment as well as make run/repair/replace decisions
  • Achieve measurable improvement in the plant's mechanical reliability level & a reduction in failure rates

Engineers in process plants need an integrated & practical understanding of the key design, operation & maintenance aspects of major process equipment & piping systems. This course aims to provide participants with the skills to design & build business-focused facilities that can be safely & effectively operated & maintained while complying with all regulatory requirements, industry codes & standards. To achieve this end, the process equipment & piping systems must have the required level of reliability to perform their intended function, at the least life cycle cost, over their specified life.

This course builds on a focused & practical coverage of engineering materials properties & selection methods & provides structured procedures.
