API 570 Piping Inspector Inservice

Role of Piping Inspector in inservice Inspection

api570

Routine inspection of Oil and Gas Refineries, Petrochemical Plants and Fertilizer plant. Piping Inspection is the regular inspection of Plant Piping which are placed inservice. Regular thickness monitoring and recording the data and updating. relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic piping systems Risk Classification, Probability of Failure and when to replace the Piping. Corrosion and their related damage mechanisms. Process Piping requirements as per ASME B31.3 and Flanges Design and Rating as per ASME B16.5

Objectives

This course is designed to maximize your success in passing the API Piping Inspector Certification Examination by teaching you to:

This course will help to the inservice Inspection personnel, Shutdown Inspector, new people entering to Piping Inspection and repairs of Process Piping during the regular Plant Inspection, Shutdown inspection of Refineries, Oil and Gas Refineries, Fertilizer Plants and Petrochemical plants.

The participant will come to know how to find the initial thickness, Corrosion Rates, Remaining Service Life, Inspection Interval,determine the weld joint quality factor “Ej” of a longitudinal pipe weld joint, remaining thickness, Corrosion Rate, Long Term Corrosion, Short Term Corrosion, Erosion, Corrosion Rates and Inspection Intervals, Weld Joint Quality Factors and Casting Quality Factors, Internal Pressure/Minimum Thickness of Pipe, Pressure Testing ,Impact Testing ,Preheating and Heat Treatment requirements, Thermal Expansion, Minimum Wall Thickness and working Pressure for Flanges. NDE requirements, Corrosion and related Damage mechanisms, FitnessFfor Service (F.F.S.), Risk Based Inspection (R.B.I.)
