This course provides an introduction to the ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code. It covers the requirements of B31.1 for design, analysis, materials, fabrication, testing and inspection of process piping systems. The instructor provides insight into how they have evolved and what future changes may be expected.
This course explores the rules for various components including fittings, connections, bends, valves, expansion joints and specialty components. Other topics include dimensions and ratings of components, fluid service requirements for joints, piping flexibility and support, welding, heat treatment, bending and forming, brazing and soldering, assembly, erection, examination and inspection and testing.
Each student will receive a copy of the ASME B31.1 Power Piping Code.
On completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify the responsibilities of personnel involved in the design, fabrication, assembly, erection, examination, inspection, and testing of power piping
- Describe the scope and technical requirements of the ASME B31.1 Code
