The integrity of the piping system depends upon the considerations and principles used for designing, constructing, inspecting and maintaining the system. Compliance with ANSI/API code requirements for design and construction is needed to assure the safety of petroleum refinery and chemical plant piping. Achieving this desired safety depends on the comprehension and application of these standards by the designer, fabricator, supplier, erector, examiner, and inspector.

This ASME Process Piping, Valve, Flanges course is designed to give the participants a thorough understanding of Process Piping Code, ASME B 31.3. Flange code ASME B 16.5, Valve standard ASME B 16.34, and it will cover Piping layout Engineering. It will help candidates learn the ASME Specification and have to use it. You will understand how to specify and select valves, flanges, pipes, and the use of P&IDs. This course will also provide a background of ANSI / ASME / API code guidance on design, selection of materials, fabrication, testing, and practical methods and trends in piping design and construction. Course deals with the various P & IDs, Equipment Plot Plans, Piping Arrangements, and Fabrication Drawings. This will include pipe sizing, piping specifications, and isometrics, including valves and fittings, piping hangers, and supports.


Attendance in the ASME Process Piping, Valve, Flanges training course will enable participants:

  • To familiarize participants with the main concepts of ASME B 31.3 code.
  • To know how to read the code and interpret its stated and implied requirements.
  • To provide participants step-by-step approach to piping design, including the design optimization techniques.
  • To introduce participants to various material selection, fabrication, erection, and testing of piping systems.
  • When, where, and how to conduct NDT of piping and the acceptance Criteria.
  • To provide participants with the does and don’ts, and good engineering practices of valve installation and operation.
  • To explain to participants the good engineering practices in preventive and brake down maintenance of valves
  • To understand the basic concepts in Piping Design, P & IDs, Pipe sizing, Piping layouts, and Isometrics.
  • To Understand Plant layout, plan, and design piping systems in a safe, dependable, and cost-effective manner.
  • Writing the piping, Flanges, fitting, and valves Specifications


This course is designed for engineers entering the piping design and fabrication; piping engineers requiring a background in code compliance, piping fabricators, and supervisory personnel requiring a review of current design and fabrication techniques and procedures.


ASME Process Piping, Valve, Flanges training course will utilize a variety of proven learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. This includes a lecture with active delegate participation, discussions, real-life problems, and case studies. Through active participation in group work and class discussions, the delegates will get a lot of opportunities to increase their experience and knowledge.

Pre & Post course assessments will be used to measure the effectiveness of this training.
