Introduction

This GLOMACS training program on API 653: Tank Inspection, Repair, Alteration and Reconstruction will focus on learning the API 653 tank inspection Code as well knowledge of the API 571, API 575, API 650, API 652, API 651, API 577, ASME Section V and ASME Section IX.

The delegates will further receive instructions on how to take the API Exam, as well as understanding of the material.

Topics include:

  • Tank Shell and bottom Min. Thickness Calculation
  • Maximum Allowable Fill Height Calculation
  • Brittle Fracture Considerations
  • Tank Joints Design, fabrication and welding
  • Cathodic Protection and Methods of Cathodic Protection
  • Surface Preparation and Lining Application
  • Impact Test Requirements and Determination
  • Development and Review of Welding Documentation

Objectives

The aim of this GLOMACS comprehensive training course is to provide the delegates with:

  • Enough knowledge and skills to pass such exam and attain the API 653 certification
  • Identify the API 653 Scopes, Suitability for Service, evaluation of the tank Shell and Min. accepted thickness also the maximum allowable fill Height
  • Evaluation of the tank Bottom, including settlement and release prevention Systems (RPS)
  • Recognize the reasons for Inspection and Causes of Deterioration
  • Determination of Need for Cathodic Protection and Methods of Cathodic Protection
  • Employ post weld heat treatment, identify the charpy impact testing
  • Carryout welding discontinuities and discuss ASME section IX WPS &WPQ and PQR

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS API 653 training course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, videos and interactive worked examples. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises and ample opportunities for discussion and sharing of experiences.

The course instructor may modify the above training methodology before or during the course for technical reasons with no prior notice to participants.

The classroom training of the API 653 Training Course consists of 5 days of training including the final practice exams
