Who should join ASME B31.3 training course by PetroSync?
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.
