Construction and maintenance of piping, pressure vessels and boilers for the most part requires flanged joints. The latter are highly advantageous as they enable fast assembly and disassembly, and facilitate installation. However, inappropriate installation may entail potential joint tightness problems and consequent risks of liquid or gas leakage.
Due to the importance of such joints, the assembly personnel is expected to be appropriately trained and certified, which is governed by the European standard EN 1591-4 and by the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive.
The program is intended for the assembly personnel, inspectors, work supervisors and anyone who may, one way or another, handle flanged joints.
The duration of the training is two days. The scope of the first day focuses on the theoretical background, while the second day encompasses practical exercises
Procedure for the assembly and disassembly of flanged joints, as well as the assembly instructions for bolted pipe connections are presented.
The training is conducted by specialists with extensive experience in the areas of pressure equipment and its periodic inspection.
If required, the training can be organized on customer premises for at least five (5) and maximum ten (10) people.
To earn the certificate for Dismantling, assembly and tightening of bolted joints in accordance with SIST EN 1591-4, a candidate is to take the examination following the training. There are two parts to the exam, a theoretical and a practical segment.
Having met all the requirements, a candidate is issued the certificate, effective from the date of fulfilling all pertinent requirements (training and successful passing the examination) and valid for the period of five (5) years.
