<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in the seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand the hierarchy of applicable regulations, codes and standards for pressure boundary related systems
  • Apply the fundamental principles and industry best practice to design an efficient process piping systems
  • Carry out in-service piping system inspections using various inspection and troubleshooting methods

The productivity of a process plant depends as much on the piping system as it does on all other plant equipment. As a result it is essential that the design of a piping system be optimized, properly maintained, and, when required, repaired in an effective and timely manner.

This course will present information on the design of an efficient process piping system and applicable code requirements. Piping system related subjects such as valves and actuators, inspection and maintenance and piping failure will also be presented. Case studies and workshops are a part of the course.
