This newly updated two-day course provides an in-depth review of the requirements for process piping systems, including overviews and applications of both the CSA B51:19 Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code and the ASME B31.3-2016 (*referenced edition in CSA B51:19). It includes content on several new CSA B51 requirements and covers topics on both codes from initial design to in-service management.
Participants will explore how the two codes are related and will learn best practices on pressure systems to help ensure safety and compliance with regulatory requirements.
- Gain a solid understanding of the inter-relationship of CSA B51:19 - Boiler, Pressure Vessel and Pressure Piping Code and ASME B31.3-2016 - Process Piping Code from design through to operational control and in-service management.
- Understand how CSA B51 guidelines are used to help define minimum legal requirements in Canada with specific attention to code adoption and the differences between various jurisdictions.
- Learn about the overall code structure, including new code clauses, communicate the proper application of tables, annexes and locate cross-referenced documentation.
- Distinguish the differences between the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and the ASME B31 piping standards through an explanation of content and proper application of tables and annexes using ASME B31.3-2016 as the primary example.
- Understand the framework required to establish an ASME Weld Procedure using the ASME Boiler and Pressure Code and communicate how to determine the correct Registration Authority
- Learn the importance of the construction requirements as part of an integral system including design, material selection, joining and construction. Testing requirements and non-destructive examination will also be addressed.
- Communicate and duplicate testing requirements and non-destructive examination.
- Apply the use of quality systems in the design and construction of process piping systems.
- Newly-added Course Components
- Topics that address the key updates to CSA B51 including new definitions for steam boilers, thermal expansion relief and more.
- Details on the new clauses that focus on in-service Inspection requirements and pressure relief devices as per the latest updates to CSA B51.
