Training Course: ASME VIII Div 1 Theory/Practice - Pressure Vessel Design
Duration: 3 days
CPD Points: 3
Dates: to be scheduled
Times: 08:00 - 16:30
Location: Unit G14, Pinewood Office Park, 33 Riley Rd, Woodmead, Sandton
Trainer: Ray Delaforce
The course is operated as a workshop where the participants are taken through
the design of the main pressure envelope of a pressure vessel, including nozzle,
vacuum rings and other components that go into the design of a pressure vessel.
You will do all the calculations from exercises (for your personal records). At
the end of the course, the delegates will be able to design, or review the
design of the major components of a vessel.
Chempute Software will provide training venue, printed training notes, teas,
lunches, course certificate. ECSA Course Accreditation has been applied for.
NB: Please bring a calculator to the course.
