Possibly the most important single safety device on a boiler or pressure vessel, the pressure relief device (PRD) is all that stands between overpressure conditions and catastrophic explosions.This comprehensive review of the design, construction, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of pressure relieving devices currently in use on boilers and pressure vessels details how to protect pressurized equipment from exceeding the maximum allowable working pressure.
This course provides information and instruction on the design, analysis, and qualification of nuclear power plant piping systems that are consistent with the ASME BPV Code, Section III, Division 1, Subsections NB/NC/ND, as well as the parallel requirements of ASME B31.1 for nuclear power plants. The methods and criteria described throughout the course, apply to new systems, as well as modifications or repairs to existing systems.
The course also addresses the integrity assessment of degraded nuclear piping systems (wall thinning and crack damage) using the methods and criteria of ASME BPV Code, XI, operability assessment per NRC Inspection Manual, and piping repairs per ASME BPV Code, XI and ASME PCC-2.
The course covers (a) the code and regulatory requirements, (b) the technical and historical basis of the requirements, and (c) best industry practices for the correct and cost-effective design, analysis, and integrity assessment of nuclear piping systems.
|This course covers the nature of pumps and valves and how they interact for optimum system performance. It will help participants develop a full understanding of how pumps and valves work, covering selection, installation, operation, maintenance, and trouble shooting. During the course participants receive guidance in making cost-effective decisions on the sizing of a pipeline diameter and tips for avoiding poor system operation.||This course provides an introduction to the principles of welding technology. The course describes the process of welding and how it affects welded materials and structures. It describes the electric circuits that are used to generate welding arcs, material properties, and the metallurgical and dimensional effects of welding on structures. The course also provides an overview of weld design concepts including efficient weld sizing and communication of weld and welding information through weld symbols on drawings.|
ASME BPV Code Section III, Division 1: Rules for Construction of Nuclear Facility Components and USNRC Regulations
|This course is a comprehensive overview of Section III, Division 1, including interfaces with Sections II, V, IX, XI, and NQA-1. The course explains how Section III is implemented by the US NRC in its regulations, and regulatory guidance. The course also explains the Section III requirements and processes, including the requirements for design, determination of safety classification for components, quality assurance, third-party oversight by the Authorized Inspection Agency, and the duties and responsibilities of N, NA, NV and NPT certificate holders.|
