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.

Mandar Mulay

Mechanical Engineer


Mandar Mulay has about 20 years hands on experience in design and integrity assessment of Piping Systems, Reactors & Storage Tanks, Pressure Vessels, Power Boiler, and Heat Exchanger. He is well conversant with the major industry codes & standards such as ASME Sec. I, ASME B 31.1, B31.3 , B31.4 and B31.8, ASME Sec VIII, BS-5500, TEMA, API -650, IS 803, API 579, ASME PCC-2 etc.

Major projects closely associated with, in his professional career so far are, Qatar Chemicals, Shell, Castrol India, Reliance Industries, Cargill Foods USA, etc. His proficiency in Power Boiler, Piping and Pressure Vessel Codes enables him to trace the similarities and differences of these codes. He also actively involved as Instructor for programs on the subjects of ASME codes, Integrity Assessment, Fitness for Service, etc.

Along with his career in Engineering and Design Department in a multinational company at a very senior post for the last 20 years, he is also visiting faculty to a well known Engineering College in India for their P.G. Courses in Piping Design and Engineering

Apart from being visiting faculty, He has also conducted several Training Courses ( ASME Sec. I, ASME Sec. VIII, ASME B 31.3 Piping Codes , API 579 FFS code, ASME PCC-2 Repair practices, and Heat Exchanger Design Operations & Maintenance ) in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and UAE for engineers from companies like Saudi Aramco, SABIC group of Companies, Qatar Petroleum, ADNOC, BAPCO, DEWA, Gulf Petrochemicals etc. He has already conducted many times the training courses in API 579, where the participants rated him “Excellent” for these courses.
