NEW COURSE - UT: THICKNESS MEASUREMENT & CORROSION MONITORING PCN LEVEL 2

FIRST COURSE STARTS 29 FEBRUARY WITH FURTHER DATES IN JUNE, SEPTEMBER AND NOVEMBER ANNOUNCED.

DETECTION AND MONITORING OF CORROSION AND DETERMINATION OF MATERIAL THICKNESS USING MANUAL ULTRASONIC TESTING IN STEEL COMPONENTS

Corrosion and erosion is a major issue facing asset management across most plants. The major oil and gas companies operating in the UK have worked alongside BINDT (British institute of Non-Destructive Testing) in accordance with PCN ISI GEN Appendix A to develop a training program to train technicians with a view to measuring the competency of personnel working in these areas on plant assets. This course is applicable to all personnel working in plant integrity across multiple industries.
    
Our IMechE Engineering Training Solutions have been cooperating in the development to produce a training program where certification will be issued to technicians who attend the course and pass the subsequent examinations.

The course will focus on:

- Corrosion and erosion mechanisms in plate, pipe and variables such as elbows, flanges, reducers etc.
- Assessment and identification of corrosion by echo-dynamic patterns and other NDT methods
- Accurate measurement of remaining wall thickness
- Understanding isometric drawings and related component symbols
- Understanding the effect of coatings on measurements
- A general view of coatings and understanding their purpose
- Understanding the purpose and different destructive testing methods
- An understanding of product technology including casting, forging, welding and heat treatment.
- Safety considerations
- A look at the various material types that may be encountered
- This course will be suitable to all plant engineers and inspectors

We will be launching the course in February 2016 at the Engineering Training Centre at Sheffield Business Park.
