Organizational Impact
The productivity of a process plant depends as much
on the piping system as it does on all other plant
equipments. As a result it is essential that the piping
must be efficiently designed, well maintained and,
when required, repaired in an effective and timely
This course will present information on the design of
an efficient process piping system and code
requirements. Sessions on piping system related
subjects, such as valves and actuators, pumps,
insulation, inspection and maintenance, piping failure
etc. are also be presented.
