Course Description
This two-day course will cover advanced topics related to the ASME B31.3 Process Piping Code. This course emphasizes the piping flexibility analysis process, including practice application of simplified methods and demonstration of computer analysis methods. This course also covers requirements for nonmetallic, Category M fluid service, high pressure and high purity piping, as well as in-service inspection to API 570 and a comparison to ASME B31.1 Power Piping requirements. An introduction to piping vibration and a discussion of considerations for underground piping are included.

Each session is conducted in a lecture/discussion/problem solving format designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance on understanding Code requirements. The instructor will be available following each day’s session to provide participants with further opportunity for discussion and consideration of specific problems. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of the code (not included in course fees) to the session.

The learning objectives for this course include:
  • Develop and understanding of how to perform a piping flexibility analysis.
  • Create acceptable arrangements for piping systems with expansion joints.
  • Develop an understanding of special considerations for nonmetallic, lethal service, high pressure, high purity and underground piping.
  • Formulate inspection plans for piping that has been placed in service.
Who Should Attend
Engineers, senior designers, maintenance and manufacturing personnel who work in depth with process piping (e.g., in the chemical, petroleum, plastic processing, pulp and paper, and bioprocessing fields) will find it a time-saving means to broaden and update their knowledge of piping.

This course is most valuable to folks with 5 or more years of experience in the process industry.

Having taken the Introduction to ASME B31.3 Course is helpful, but not a requirement.
