Process Piping - Materials
In Process Piping - Materials, you'll learn ...
- Selection criteria for piping materials covering service life, temperature, pressure and corrosion considerations
- Commonly used standards for pipe and fittings
- The impact of carbon content and alloying elements on strength, hardness, ductility, machinability, and weldability
- The five different classes of stainless steel and their metallurgical characteristics
- Piping materials for special applications, such as high temperature, low temperature, cryogenic, stress-corrosion cracking and sour service
Pipe materials are selected on the basis of service requirements - most important being the strength and the corrosion resistance. In making a choice, it is necessary to know what materials are available and to what extent they are suited to the specific application. The decision is quite involved and the choice is significantly affected by the environment and the intended use.
This 6 hr. course provides fundamental knowledge of the design and selection of process piping materials. It covers the guidance on the applicable codes and materials. It gives the pertinent information of the most common ASME/ASTM codes and material standards highlighting the applications these are suited for.
This course is Part 2 of a 9-part series that covers the entire gamut of piping engineering in an easy-to-learn format. Each course in the series is stand-alone. Feel free to jump back and forth through the courses depending on your own knowledge and experience and your current needs. However, it is suggested that you complete the series in sequential order if you have limited knowledge of piping systems.
This course is intended for mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, piping engineers, control systems engineers, as well as civil, structural and electrical engineers who have a need or a desire to know more about piping components and systems. No prerequisite knowledge of the subject is required.
