Boiler - (Part 3 of 4) Pressure Part Failure Analysis & Prevention
This Pressure Part Failure course is designed to benefit personnel responsible for inspecting and maintaining the boiler and its auxiliaries. Emphasis is on common points for all boiler inspections.
The Boiler Inspection series progressively addresses the subject of boiler inspection starting with the fundamentals of inspecting thick-wall (headers/drums) and thin-wall (tubes) pressure parts as well as those sub-components closely associated with reliable operation.
In the advanced assessment phase of this series, the lessons will take stress analysis to a higher level where component life and integrity assessment can be projected beyond the traditional 30-year period, factoring in the risks associated with cyclic operation.
Maximum number of students: 18
This course will provide basic knowledge on the following:
Lessons for this session apply a laboratory focus on the following systems and equipment. Predictive, preventative and corrective boiler and auxiliaries maintenance tasks are addressed from the perspective of pre-outage, outage and post-outage periods:
LESSON 1 - Predictive
LESSON 2 – Preventative
LESSON 3 – Corrective
This course will give the participants an opportunity to ask how laboratory analyses (both metallurgical and computer based) can be applied to the entire plant cycle, including components such as deaerator tanks or turbine blades.
