Process Piping (Type B) Installer Training
This course has been designed to equip the student to utilize NRI’s Engineered Composite Repair (ECR) systems for the repair of both, Type A and Type B defects on piping systems including straight pipe, elbows, and tees. Type A defects are defined by the ASME PCC-2 and ISO/TS 24817 documents as non-leaking defects. This includes, but is not limited to, external corrosion defects up to 80% wall loss, dents, gouges, wrinkle bends, and faulty welds. Type B defects are defined by the ASME PCC-2 and ISO/TS 24817 documents as leaking defects. This includes, but is not limited to, through-wall defects and internal corrosion which will result in wall loss below 0.04” (1mm). Successful completion of this course will require the student to pass a written test on the various aspects covered in the class (see Agenda Outline below) as well as perform repairs on a pipe section with external wall loss plus a 1” hole, an elbow, and a tee using two of NRI’s ECR systems. The Student’s repair on the 1” hole must pass a hydro-pressure test of at least 1,200 psi (83 bar) once fully cured. This course shall qualify the student to install the following ECR systems from NRI for Type A and Type B defects: Syntho-Glass® XT, Viper-Skin®, Thermo-Wrap™ Inspectable, Thermo-Wrap™ CF, and Acid-Shield™.
Composite Inspection Course
This course has been designed to teach the student the methods and procedures to properly verify and inspect Engineered Composite Repair (ECR) systems from start to finish. This course will discuss different types of ECR Systems, Engineering Assessment Forms, Engineering Design/Calculation documents, Quality Control points and forms, verifying proper surface preparation and cleaning, proper mixing of materials and saturation of fibers, methods and means of determining root cause of failures, and other items relevant to the usage of ECR systems. The inspection methods and processes discussed in this course will work with ECR systems to ensure proper installation and working conditions regardless of the specific product used. Time will be spent working with various tools used in the QC of ECR systems and an assessment test will be given.
Thermo-Wrap® 500 Add-On
This add-on course provides additional training and qualification on the Thermo-Wrap 500 product at elevated temperatures to ensure the student understands the needs and concerns of conducting composite repairs on elevated temperatures.
Composite Clamp™ Add-On
This add-on course provides additional training for the proper installation of the Composite Clamp product. This clamp is designed to seal live leaks with a very low-profile clamp so that an ECR system may be installed successfully in leaking scenarios.
Syntho-Glass® UP Add-On
This add-on course provides additional training for the proper installation of the Syntho-Glass UP kit. This kit is designed to seal live leaks so that an ECR system may be installed successfully in leaking scenarios.
