This training course is primarily intended for experienced O&M staff working in thermal power and process plants, but could also be of interest to corporate engineering and management staff. The objective is to give attendees a comprehensive view of the strategy, actions and considerations involved in effectively managing and thereby assuring the integrity of piping, tubing and vessels that form the pressure boundary to steam or water process fluid. A range of topics relating to the design, inspection and repair of relevant components are treated using a combination of theory and numerous practical examples. The examples are all based on actual project cases encountered by Tetra Engineering staff at plants around the world.
Understand the key considerations involved in designing all the power and process plant components that form the pressure boundary.
Gain insight into the theory underlying the most damage mechanisms that affect pressure boundary components, either on the waterside or fire/air-side.
A survey of the inspection and surveillance techniques and practices that are available and how to best choose the best approach for assuring pressure part integrity over time while considering the impact of economic and operational constraints.
Learn about various methods to predict wear and damage in pressure parts
Methods or approaches for determining the root cause are presented in summary fashion. Whatever the method chosen, it is important to remember that the ultimate objective is to find a solution that prevents further failures.
Learn about how to best plan and then perform repairs to meet the challenge of achieving schedule, cost and quality objectives.
Examples from recent projects performed by Tetra staff are presented, covering field inspections, life assessments and failure analyses on a variety of steam cycle pressure part components.
This course is offered in a 2 day format and a condensed 1 day format.
