The productivity of a process plant depends as much on the piping system as it does on all other plant equipment. As a result it is essential that the design of your piping system be optimized, properly maintained, and when required, repaired in an effective and timely manner.

This course is designed to provide you with a complete understanding of designmanufacturing and construction of piping systems and their basic components, such as fittingsflangesvalves and pipe supports in addition to the codes and standards that apply to them.

The course includes extensive graphics, cross-sectional views, sizing tables and 3D animations. This will give you a virtual practical exposure on piping systems and their accessories.

The course also includes numerous practice sessions and most importantly will present a step-by-step piping design method.

We will show you how to design a piping system from scratch. This valuable and proven piping design method is actually what we use at our petrochemical complex to design a new piping system or to modify an existing one.

This design method is presented at the end of the course. For this reason, we do highly recommend starting the course from the beginning and navigating through all the sections in the order we have established so that you will be in better position when tackling the design section.

So to sum up and to put it simply, the objective of this course is threefold :

1. Break down for you all the piping system design and construction principles into easily digestible concepts like joining technologies, welding methods, pipe expansion handling, calculation of distances between piping supports and dimensioning of pipe guides and anchors…

2. Illustrate using 3D animations and cross-sectional views the main piping components, state their function, their operating limits, their material of construction and their installation procedures such as pipes, flanges, fittings and valves…

3. Provide proven guidelines and best practices for design, construction, installation and maintenance of piping systems in accordance with the codes and standards defined by the ASME & ANSI. The concept of Piping Specifications and Piping Classes will discussed in exquisite detail with numerous practical examples

  • Learn a valuable step-by-step Piping Design Method and start designing your piping systems from scratch (we actually use this proven method at our petrochemical complex to design a new piping system or to modify an existing one)
  • Download our valuable sizing tables and dimensioning charts, essential to properly design your piping system
  • Download our valuable technical booklets covering Flanges & Valves
  • Build a strong understanding of piping design and construction principles for both metallic and nonmetallic piping systems
  • Explain the various pipe manufacturing and joining methods
  • Identify the different types of fittings and their application
  • Identify the different types of flanges, gaskets, and bolting materials
  • Identify the different types of valves, their basic parts and functions
  • Identify the different types of control valves, their basic parts and functions
  • Identify the different types of piping accessories (anchors, dummy and channel supports, spring hangers, hanger rods…)
  • Gain guidance for selecting the most appropriate pipe specification and material for your application
  • Gain guidance for selecting the most appropriate pipe spacing and arrangement to mitigate thermal expansion and successfully design your piping support systems
  • Explain the process of pipe identification
  • Appreciate the various piping classes based on the design and application
  • Know and familiarize yourself with international and national pipe standards and specifications (ASME, ANSI, AFNOR…)

This training course is designed to benefit all levels of technical personnel in the Oil & Gas industry as well as in chemical and process industries but will greatly benefit :

  • Piping Designers
  • Design Engineers
  • Process, Mechanical and Chemical Engineers
  • Operation and Maintenance Engineers
  • Plant Operators
  • Maintenance Personnel
  • Technical Personnel involved in inspection

Some engineering or field knowledge is preferable but not mandatory. All the concepts are explained in depth using an easy to understand language to allow students to build their knowledge from the ground up

Our clients say

"Great Course. Gives you a good range of material for understanding piping systems. Most of the concepts are given here in a 6.5 hour course. They did a nice job with examples and simulations. It was a good review for me. They put a lot of work in their videos. Nice Job WR Training"
"This is far beyond my expectations. The instructor tries to break it down to the lowest possible level of understanding"
"Well structured and easy to understand"
"I'm halfway through the course right now and I have already gained much more information than I really expected. I'm an entry-level engineer in a construction company but as an Electrical engineer, I'm always eager to learn about everything and there are only limited things to amaze an electrical engineer in the construction field so I look through such resources which can help me be a better engineer and I found this course really helpful. Thank you for this excellent job"
"Helder en duidelijk :-)"
