EG55Q4: PROCESS DESIGN, LAYOUT & MATERIALS (2020-2021)

Last modified: 05 Aug 2021 13:04


Course Overview

Candidates will develop PIDs for major systems applying LOPA and including instrumentation. Inherently safe equipment layout principles for both onshore and offshore applications are addressed.  Layouts will be developed for example applications.

The safety critical systems are reviewed and discussed.

Corrosion mechanisms are addressed together with materials for construction properties.  Basic corrosion models are presented for a wide range of fluids.  The operational modes which present most demand on materials are reviewed.  Corrosion in erosive environments is addressed.  Effects of temperature deviations in fire & blowdown are illustrated and analysed.  Case studies are used to illustrate common issues.
