Course description

This five day, intermediate level course for facility engineers and project engineers reviews the key areas associated with the mechanical design of pressure vessels and heat exchangers for oil and gas facilities. The course is focused on vessels, heat exchangers built in accordance to ASME VIII Div 1, considering material selection, key design calculations, and manufacturing processes. The course is not aimed at process engineers sizing equipment (PF-42 covers these elements), although a brief review of the sizing correlations is included. The course is delivered from the perspective of a vessel fabricator to better understand the dos and don'ts of ideal mechanical specification of pressurized equipment by owner/operators, in order to optimize material utilization and minimize construction costs. The Houston session features an afternoon field trip to a large pressure vessel fabricator.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Mechanical, facilities, construction, or project engineers and plant piping/vessel designers who are involved in the specification and purchasing of pressure vessels, heat exchangers, and other pressure-containing equipment for oil and gas facilities.

Training Course Content

Vessel codes and standards (ASME B&PV Code, TEMA, API); Vessel material selection, corrosion mechanisms, heat treatment, and basic metallurgy; Essential design calculations for vessels and heat exchangers; Welding process overview and inspection requirements; Constructability and operability considerations; Vessel integrity, evaluation, and re-purposing of pressure-containing equipment according to API/ASME
