ASME PCC-2 Repair of Pressure Equipment

Mandar Mulay

ASME PCC-2, being a relatively new standard and fairly popular, has proved to be useful worldwide for the repair of pressure equipment and piping.

Many large companies have adopted these procedures and incorporated them into their company specifications.

The intent behind this 3-day training program is to introduce this standard to all attendees and understand all the basic concepts and philosophy, as well as the various procedures for repairing pressure equipment and piping.

In the training course, we also will discuss the limitations and advantages/ disadvantages of all the procedures mentioned in the standard.

The correlation of this standard with other in-service codes and standards such as API-510/ 570/ 579/ 580 will also be understood and clarified to all attendees.

This training course will not only be useful to maintenance engineers but equally for all supporting disciplines such as design, operations, and inspection engineers.

It will help all engineers to collectively troubleshoot and resolve problems/ issues at the site related to temporary/ permanent repairs of equipment and piping.
