American Petroleum Institute (API) initiated an Aboveground Storage Tank Inspector Certification Program with the issuance of Supplement 1 to API 653, Tank Inspection, Repair, Alteration, and Reconstruction. This 5 days training course is designed to give a detailed discussion onthe required engineering knowledge for In-service Storage tankswith emphasis on syllabus published by API (Body of Knowledge). Thepreparatory course will clarify basic intentions of all code prescribedfor study, how to interpret code rulings and at the end, built-up theconfidence among the participants for taking decisions.

 

The course is divided into six main areas: Basic Storage tank design engineering i.e. API 650, In-service inspection techniques (API 653/ RP 575/ RP 577), Damage mechanisms (API 571), Cathodic protection (API RP 651) and lining of tank bottom (API RP 652), calculations of retirement thickness and other skills required for delivery of quality job & safe operation. The participants will receive comprehensive course notes, illustrated with practical case studies, main punch-points of the course to impart knowledge to participants.

 

With Mr. Uday Kale’s extensive involvements in the facilities inspection, as well as his practical coaching and mentoring approaches, this course not only prepare the candidates to pass API 653 examination with confident, it will also advance the appreciation of storage tank facilities and thus to broaden the technical knowledge base in order to avoid unplanned shutdown and reduce expenses!
