Process Piping - Corrosion, Insulation and Testing
In Process Piping - Corrosion, Insulation and Testing, you'll learn ...
- Corrosion basics and the different types of corrosion that can impact piping systems
- Methods to mitigate corrosion of piping systems
- Characteristics of common insulating materials
- When to perform hydrostatic vs. pneumatic leak testing
- Various destructive and non-destructive testing methods use for pipe, fittings and welded joints
A critical step in ensuring pipe fitness for operational use is the proper diagnosis of failure resulting from corrosion, leakage or ruptures due to excessive pressures. Corrosion is a natural occurrence that can damage pipe and result in leakage. A correct choice of material, thickness, coating etc. is essential to prevent potential failure. Also when to opt for hydro testing and when to pneumatic test is a common concern to most piping engineers.
In this 5-hour course, you will gain a comprehensive knowledge of corrosion mechanisms, testing, and inspection along with the influence of different environmental factors. The course is written in a simple format without too many mathematical equations.
This course is Part 9 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.
