Risk-Based Inspection

This API-Branded, Risk-Based Inspection training course gives attendees the basic understanding of RBI principles, recommendations, requirements, and the methodologies of API RP 580 and 581.

Upcoming Courses:

Risk-Based Inspection (API RP 580/581)

July 25 @ 9:00 am July 29 @ 1:00 pm EDT

This API-U approved Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) virtual training course provides attendees with a basic understanding of RBI principles and methodologies given in API RP 580 and 581. With a heavy emphasis on API RP 581 technology, students learn how to apply RBI technology to processing equipment by determining the probability of failure, the consequence of failure, and risk.  The culmination of the course occurs when attendees learn how to plan the equipment’s next inspection based on risk criteria. Additionally, the instructors facilitate discussions on developing an RBI program using industry best practices to avoid common pitfalls and mistakes when implementing and maintaining your RBI program. Typical risk reduction and the benefits of shifting from a time or conditioned-based inspection program to an RBI approach are also presented. Finally, the instructors present a detailed, comprehensive example problem to demonstrate the step-by-step risk calculations for a typical pressure vessel using the methodology of API RP 581.

Damage Mechanisms

This Damage Mechanisms training course covers an overview of basic metallurgy and a description of the most common refining processes. Its major focus includes detailed discussions of the key refining damage mechanisms addressed in API RP 571 and examples of equipment damage and failures. 

Upcoming Courses:

Damage Mechanisms (API RP 571)

August 15 @ 9:00 am August 19 @ 1:00 pm EDT

This Damage Mechanisms training course covers an overview of basic metallurgy and a description of the most common refining processes. Its major focus includes detailed discussions of the key refining damage mechanisms addressed in API RP 571 and examples of equipment damage and failures. It also includes discussion of typical non-destructive evaluation (NDE) methods applicable for detection of damage related to the specific damage mechanisms. Many problems can be prevented or eliminated if the precursors to damage are observed and monitored so that any potential damage is mitigated. This training course will teach attendees to identify damage mechanisms and potential risk areas. The instructors will discuss the background and logic behind the document and provide relevant case histories.

Fitness-for-Service

This Fitness-For-Service training course will provide attendees with an introduction to API 579-1/ASME FFS-1. This training course covers all of the sections of API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 with a focus on the Level 1 and Level 2 assessment procedures.

Upcoming Courses:

Fitness-For-Service: Volumetric Metal Loss (Parts 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 of API 579)

August 22 @ 1:00 pm August 24 @ 5:00 pm EDT

The training session begins with the definition of fitness-for-service (FFS) and introduces the Life-Cycle Management (LCM) framework as a process to manage the entire life-cycle of fixed equipment including design, construction, in-service use, repair, and retirement. Opportunities for FFS assessments are presented from both the traditional reactive mode and from an opportunistic proactive mode. General background information, as presented in Part 1 of the API 579-1/ASME FFS-1 Fitness-for-Service (API FFS) standard with regards to its scope, organization and use, and the responsibilities and qualifications of the parties involved with FFS assessments, is reviewed. The general eight-step procedure from Part 2 of API FFS is presented, which is used for all of the assessments contained in API FFS and introduces the three common acceptance criteria used in FFS assessments including: Allowable Stress/Remaining Life, Remaining Strength Factor (RSF), and the Failure Assessment Diagram (FAD).
