Instructor by : Y. Agus Jayatun 


This course studies important topics regarding the design, in-shop and in-service inspection, repair, alteration and re-rating of pressure vessels and storage tanks, with particular focus on practicality and “how to apply” the provisions of the ASME Pressure Vessel Code, specifically, Sections II, V, VII, IX and API 510; API 650, API 653 and API 2000. The methods outlined in these codes are key if one is to maintain a pressure vessel’s mechanical integrity throughout its design life. The design, inspection and repair techniques contained in the both the ASME and API codes apply to the full range of problems that arise during the life cycle of a pressure vessel.

This course maintains a balance between lecture and in-class exercises and between theory and application. Sample problems and case examples are dispersed throughout the course to emphasize the principles covered. The instructor has a warehouse of knowledge and experience that he passes along to help the participants get a unique multidiscipline approach in solving the problems associated with pressure vessels.
