Boiler - (Part 4 of 4) Advanced Pressure Part Condition & Remaining Life Assessment
This Advanced Pressure Part Condition 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, of four courses, progressively addresses the subject of boiler inspection from 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, 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 ever increasing cyclic operation.
This course will give the participants an opportunity to ask about how the laboratory analysis (both metallurgical and computer based) can be applied to the entire plant cycle including such areas as deaerator tanks or turbine blades. Information covered can be applied to coal, oil, gas, and waste-fired boilers, industrial or utility.
Maximum number of students: 18
This course will provide basic knowledge on the following:
The lessons for this session, Advanced Pressure Part Condition and Remaining Life Assessment, 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
