Course Description

Pressure Vessel system is one of the critical production assets in process industry. Organizations recognize the need to maintain authorized inspection agency and technically assess qualified pressure vessel engineers and inspectors to ensure facilities are at top performance. Therefore, API 510 certification is one of the most sought after professional competency that enables inspectors to be actively involved in the improvement of industry & environmental health and safety performance, reinforcement management control, compliance of inspection capabilities. 

This course not only prepare the candidates to pass API 510 examination with confident, it will also advance the appreciation of pressure vessel facilities and thus to broaden the technical knowledge base in order to avoid unplanned shutdown and reduce expenses! 

Course Objectives

  • Explaining all the information covered in the API 510 'Body of Knowledge' including ASME welding requirements for pressure vessels section IX and VIII
  • Reviewing ASME non-destructive testing principles and application of Section V Pressure Vessel Design 
  • ASME Section VIII, weld sizes, vessel nozzle reinforcement, brittle fracture, weld efficiency factors, post weld heat treatment
  • Getting know pressure relieving devices, valves, bursting discs, setting, testing and inspection
  • Introducing API 510 inspection, repair and rerating of vessels, inspection intervals, inspection requirements, relationships to ASME codes. Corrosion, minimum thickness determination and remaining life calculations
