IntRoduction to Asset Integrity Management of Non-Rotating Equipment: Avoiding Fires and Explosions!

Tuesday, 19 May, 12:00 CDT (GMT - 5:00)

Presented by Ron Frend

This webinar will provide a review of the various aspects of mechanical integrity in refineries, oil & gas plants and petrochemical plants. Principal emphasis is placed on the primary means of achieving plant integrity, which is the prevention of loss of containment of pressure containing equipment. This webinar provides structured procedures and applicable methods for the mechanical design of process piping systems and pressure equipment.
