This training course provides an overview of API 970 (CCD's) and API 584 IOW's. The work processes will be described in detail. Examples of deliverables will be provided.
Trainees should bring examples of PFD's (CMD's). The class will go through the process of developing IOW's for one or two process units.
The instructor has experience with oil sands units (such as DRU's, SAGD and upgraders) and has extensive background in oil refining corrosion/materials.
Becht Engineering is excited to be partnering with Codeware, Inc. to present this 2.5-day COMPRESS software training. Students will be building models of pressure vessels and performing calculations using COMPRESS. Upon completion of this course participants will be able to design and rate vessels with ease. Our instructor, Don Kurle, PE, has been working with Section VIII, Division 1 for over 35 years and worked several years for Codeware, Inc. as a technical support engineer assisting clients with technical issues related to application of the COMPRESS program. He also developed and presented training classes in the use of the program.
Who Should Attend? Individuals involved with the design or inspection of pressure vessels who are looking to gain hands-on experience using COMPRESS. This course is intended for beginners, as well as experienced vessel designers and inspectors. To benefit most from this course, a familiarity with the ASME Code is recommended, but attendees are not required to have an Engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter. If you wish to increase your knowledge of the Code in addition to learning how to use COMPRESS, we recommend registering for our ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Design with COMPRESS training course.
Becht Engineering is excited to partner with Codeware, Inc. to present this ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Pressure Vessel Design course with COMPRESS software training. Enhance your understanding of ASME Section VIII, Division 1 design rules through five days of intensive training with hands-on problem solving using COMPRESS.
Who Should Attend? Individuals involved with the design or inspection of pressure vessels who are looking to gain hands-on experience using COMPRESS. This course is intended for beginners, as well as experienced vessel designers and inspectors who would like to update their knowledge of the Code. Some degree of technical background will be helpful, but such individuals are not required to have an Engineering degree or previous work experience in the subject matter.
Becht Engineering's 5 day API-579/ASME FFS-1 Fitness for Service course provides theory and practical application of API-579/ASME FFS-1 methods for assessing the acceptability of equipment with various kinds of flaws. The Fitness-for-Service training provides direction for performing FFS assessments using procedures specifically prepared for pressurized equipment. For the topics covered in the training, example problems will be solved using hand calculations supplemented with BechtFFS software and Codeware Inc.'s INSPECT software.
Who Should Attend? Individuals involved in performing assessment of petrochemical equipments with flaws will benefit from this course.
Becht Engineering's 4 day Process Piping Course is designed to provide participants with a complete and up-to-date overview of the area of Piping Technology with an emphasis on process piping. The course covers design, fabrication, examination and testing requirements of ASME B31.3. It covers Code requirements from design through start-up of new piping systems, as well as requirements for inspection and repair of piping systems that have been in service, as provided in API 570, Piping Inspection Code. This course provides a foundation of knowledge necessary for those responsible for assuring the mechanical integrity of existing piping systems, as well as those responsible for designing and constructing new piping systems.
Who Should Attend? Engineers, senior designers, maintenance, quality assurance, inspection and manufacturing personnel who work 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.
Becht Engineering's 4 day Design-By-Analysis course will introduce participants to the Design-By-Analysis portion of the ASME code Section VIII, Division 2, Part 5. Based on the rules and guidance provided in Part 5, this course is a comprehensive introduction to the requirements of performing Design-By-Analysis to the ASME Code. This course provides detailed instruction on performing finite element analysis in compliance with the Code. Examples problems are presented and discussed for many of the common rules. This course is intended for engineers who are familiar with pressure vessel and piping design, and need additional guidance on applying Design-By-Analysis concepts.
Who Should Attend? This course is intended for engineers who are familiar with pressure vessel and piping design, and need additional guidance on applying Design-By-Analysis concepts. It is also intended for engineers who specify and review Design-By-Analysis work by others. Experience in using finite element analysis will be helpful, but is not necessary.
Becht Engineering is excited to be offering this new course. The course will cover perform fitness-for-service (FFS) assessment of aged and/or damaged tanks, vessels and piping systems, in accordance with API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 - using case studies. Make run-or-repair decisions, in accordance with API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. Understand the technical and historical bases of the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 methods and criteria Repair Options (ASME PCC-2, API-653, NBIC NB-23): If repair is necessary, select the repair, in accordance with ASME PCC-2 and compare to other repair standards (API and NBIC).
Becht Engineering is excited to be offering this new course. The first part of this course covers the fundamental design rules, regulations, and practices for ASME III and ASME B31 piping systems in nuclear power plants. The second part of the course provides a guide for the evaluation of degraded and non-conforming conditions through case studies, using ASME XI and the corresponding NRC regulations and precedent. The course concludes with a review of repair options for safety-related and non-safety piping systems and components.
