Course Objective

This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.

Course Description

168-Life Cycle Mechanical Integrity Of Piping Systems

The long term mechanical integrity of piping systems is critical to ensuring safety of personnel, and the reliability of a plant. Pipe failures do occur at many facilities, and most failures can be avoided by proper periodic visual observation of the pipe and pipe supports; and Non Destructive Examination (NDE) focused on certain piping systems and locations.

This course describes the methods, checklists and examples of performing visual observations. When finished, the student will understand why the variable spring hanger in the photo is a concern.

The course also shows a method to set up a long term NDE monitoring system, and guides to evaluating the results.  Guidelines for developing Short Term and Long Term Recommendations are also provided to maintain the Mechanical Integrity of piping systems over decades.

This course is intended for those who work in industrial facilities to make them aware of a system they could set up, or maintain; for management who should be focused on reliability and safety issues; and for engineers designing plants to set up appropriate programs during the design and construction phases of the project.

The Piping Engineering curriculum by Mr. May includes:

  • Introduction to Piping Engineering
  • Building Mechanical Integrity Into the Plant Design

Questions 8 and 10 were could not be answered correctly from course material. For question 8, the course material states that the control room can only read pipe temperature. Question 10 was just confusing and did not tie with course material.
