For over 100 years, ASME Performance Test Codes (PTCs) have been providing industry with the best technical documents to conduct tests of power plant equipment and systems.
This course introduces practical design considerations and analysis for thermowell installations in power and process piping. PTC 19.3 TW expanded the designs and variations covered by PTC 19.3. This Code is an expanded version of the thermowell section contained in PTC 19.3-1974, and it incorporates the latest theory in the areas of natural frequency, Strouhal frequency, in-line resonance, and stress evaluation.
You will learn to:
- Describe the scope of PTC 19.3 TW
- Recognize the situations where it is applicable
- Discuss the theory behind vortex shedding
- Identify the information needed to perform the calculations
- Apply the results of the analysis
Module 1 - Overview and Scope of PTC 19.3 TW
Module 2 - Stress Calculations
Module 3 - Construction and Installation Considerations
Module 4 - Thermowell Suitability Analysis
Who should attend
This course is designed for anyone who wants an introduction to and a basic understanding of ASME’s PTC 19.3 TW.
