ASME Sec. VIII, Div. 1

Fabrication Code Requirements

June 6-9
Calgary, AB

This is an introductory course to provide a basic understanding of the fabrication, inspection and testing portions of ASME Section VIII Division 1. Principles of design will be discussed, but not in sufficient detail that this course can be considered a design course for new construction. ASME Section VIII, Division 1 deals with new construction, however, in this course the application of the principles expressed in the code will be extrapolated to deal with operation and maintenance issues and how they work with API 510 for post construction inspection, repairs and alterations. The course also includes a brief introduction to ASME Section II - Part A (Ferrous Material Standards) and to ASME Section IX - Welding Qualifications.

This course is ideal for inspectors, engineers, maintenance and QA personnel who work for owner-user companies, inspection companies, fabricators, maintenance service and repair companies, inspection companies, EPC's and others who want an understanding of the principles and applications of ASME Section VIII, Division 1. Optional evening tutorial sessions will be available.

API 579-1/ASME FFS-1


June 14-17
Calgary, AB

This course will discuss the basic and intermediate methodologies of inspecting and assessing equipment for continued service, the need for more advanced evaluations, and the possible remediation available will be discussed in accordance with the methodologies given in API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. A limited discussion will be presented on advanced methods of assessment.

The role of the inspector in gathering data and evaluating that data will be discussed as will be the role of the technologist and engineer in appraising the data and employing it in engineering calculations.

This course is ideal for inspectors, engineers, and technologists who are involved in performing API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 evaluations, inspecting and analyzing pressure vessels, pressure piping, tanks and pipelines for safe operation when there is a change in service temperature, or where they have been found to be damaged, distorted, cracked, blistered, or experiencing metal loss.

Code Design Requirements for Pressure Vessels

June 21-24
Edmonton, AB

The design requirements of Section VIII, Division 1 will be explained and the application of those requirements demonstrated through example problems. General, material, and fabrication requirements with related documentation will be covered.

Participants will not only gain the knowledge for design of safe and economical vessels, they will also learn how to select proper materials, avoid common fabrication problems, and prepare data reports. A number of important Code Cases, which will result in more economical construction will be introduced. The latest Code revisions and the work being performed on future revisions will be reviewed.

This course is ideal for individuals involved with the purchase, design, fabrication, or inspection of pressure vessels. (Engineers, designers, fabrication personnel, QA supervisors, and inspectors who work for pressure vessel owners, fabricators, inspection companies, EPC's and government agencies.)
