Similar to the API 580 certification, highly specialized inspectors, engineers, other professionals across the entire petrochemical industry can obtain the API 571 Corrosion and Materials certification as a validation of their knowledge on damage mechanisms.
API RP 571-2020 is the latest edition that describes damage mechanisms affecting equipment in the refining and petrochemical industries. A key first step in managing equipment safety and reliability is the identification and understanding of the various damage mechanisms
Proper identification of damage mechanisms is also required when implementing the API Inspection Codes (API510, API 570, API 653) and in carrying out risk based inspection (RBI) per API 580 and API 581. When performing a fitness-for-service (FFS) assessment using API 579, the damage mechanisms need to be understood and need to be considered when evaluating the remaining life.
The on-line course aims to provide the participants with a thorough understanding of the various damage mechanisms contained in the latest edition of API RP 571-2020 that can affect process equipment, the type and extent of damage that can be expected, and how this knowledge can be applied to the selection of effective inspection methods to detect size and characterize damage. The 66 damage mechanisms to be discussed in this corrosion short course are common to a variety of industries including refining and petrochemical, pulp and paper, and fossil utility.
