API 571 is means for imparting knowledge to the participants with damage mechanisms which are important when implementing the API Inspection Codes (API 510, API 570, API 653) and in conducting risk based inspection per API 580 and API 581. Refineries and chemical plants contain many different processing units, each having its own combination of aggressive process streams and temperature/pressure conditions.

In this class you will be taught how to identify each damage mechanisms, how to gauge the severity of them, how take preventive action and how to reduce the probability of its occurrence and how to mitigate it’s consequence.

In this 5 days of course, there will be sufficient videos, animations, demo, case studies and workshops to explain the damage mechanism concepts fully. We methodically deals with each type of damage mechanism and how to take effective steps in detecting and dealing with them. Special emphasis is given for tips in identifying damage mechanisms and also inspection and monitoring is dealt very lucidly Also The Basics of Risk Based Inspection and Fitness for Service with respect to the understanding of damage mechanism will be done.
