Terms and conditions
An applicant who withdraws from the course 2 working days or less prior to the course start date will entitle ARVENG to retain 10% of the tuition fee as an administration fee. Once the course has started, no refund will be made.
All ARVENG courses are subject to possible changes of dates that will be communicated as soon as possible. ARVENG is not responsible for the expenses incurred for travel-related contracts (hotels and flights), so we recommend that they are not made well in advance and if they are made, they should be contracted with cancellation or change insurance.
Get a discount for early payment if you register 15 days before the start of the course, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will inform you how to proceed.
The course follows the “learning through experience” methodology. A series of discussions, individual exercises and simplified case studies provide practical knowledge to implement in the field. With the help of the Study Notes and with the assistance of the instructor, participants will gradually progress through the course.
Who should attend?
This course is intended for graduates (or soon to be), designers, freelancers, technicians and engineers involved in: calculation, design, selection, manufacturing, safety, quality and maintenance of systems and equipment in industrial processes.
Previous knowledge of this subject is not required to attend to the course.
The main objective of this course is to transfer to participants the theoretical and practical skills required to guarantee and adequate design and installation of flanged joints. This knowledge has been obtained from experience and sound engineering practices.
At the end of the course, participants will have a clear vision of the requirements of these regulations.
What to expect?
- Get familiar with the vocabulary, terminology, and fundamental concepts of flanged joints.
- Learn the organization of the code, scope, and fundamental sections.
- Benefit from lessons learned and best practices from different international projects.
- At the end of this training participants will be able to define the main requirements for flanged joints:
- Flanged joints as per ASME PCC-1
- Verification of the main parameter to guarantee an adequate seating of bolted flanges.
- Tightening of bolts
- Tightening Sequence
- Torque calculation
- Pressure tests
