This Five-day program offers a proper understanding of the ASME/ TEMA codes and standards, pertaining to mechanical design engineering, inspection and testing of the shell and tube heat exchangers and it’s relevant referred codes. This course emphasizes understanding of ‘stated’ and ‘implied’ requirements (i.e. content and intent) of the codes. The participants would be explained in detail the application of these code/ standard rules and mechanical design formulas for different design
conditions and services.
ASME Section VIII/ TEMA are very commonly adopted guidelines which are comparatively easier to use, in comparison to BS/DIN/ other codes and standards.
This course is intended to give the participants the confidence for carrying out design, and maintenance and testing for shell and tube heat exchangers and also will help to carrying out strength calculations and assessment of integrity of existing exchangers. How to adopt code rules for different types of exchangers and with various service conditions will be illustrated with case discussions. Important code stipulation will be reviewed and discussed collectively with participants so as to address the difficulties and ambiguities they might have encountered during their working. This course will also help the design engineers to assess the work of the fabricators/ vendors as regards to drawing and calculation review/ approval.
Over and all the course will make the attendees comfortable with the use of ASME/ TEMA codes and standards and understand the basic concepts with better clarity. This will give the candidates a firm background for further studying in-service codes/ standards such as API-579, ASME PCC-2 or API-510.
The course is designed for, but not limited to, mechanical design, operations, maintenance, and inspection professionals who are involved in equipment such as pressure vessels, heat exchangers, process columns, etc .
