Learn how to find and solve vibration problems in your piping systems. We’ll discuss standards and methods to help you decide if piping is in vibration service and discuss which type of pipe supports can help you control vibration in these sensitive areas.
Piping vibration (and resulting fatigue failure) is one of the most common causes of hydrocarbon releases. Multiple industry standards include vibration considerations, but it’s not clear when to apply which guideline and in what detail the system needs to be analysed.
Our troubleshooting engineers are called to facilities all over the world to tackle the toughest vibration problems. One thing we run into time and again is piping that is obviously in vibration service but was not designed as such, using supports unsuited to demanding dynamic loads.
In this webinar, we'll present new ways to identify vibratory service in piping systems, examine the strengths and weaknesses of common piping standards and show examples of when and how to apply them in your project or facility.
We’ll also discuss new guidelines on the horizon and show you the latest solutions to control vibration in new and existing facilities.
You’ll learn how to:
Apply a clear methodology to determine whether a piping system is in vibratory service
Select pipe supports that can control vibration loads
Prevent vibration problems and failures in your piping designs
A certificate of completion that may be submitted for professional development hour (PDH) credits* will be provided upon request at the end of the session (see feedback survey).
The session will take about 60 minutes.
*This webinar is intended to assist participants in retaining and expanding their knowledge base. Wood will provide a certificate for attending the live webinar if requested at the end of the session. Acceptance as development credits is at the discretion of the organisation that receives the submittal.
