Kinnear 206 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM Struggling with TOO MANY Piping CMLs? Let us Introduce you to a Risk Based Criticality Assessment Approach to Optimize the Number of CMLs This session will look at using criticality assessment (CA) approach in developing a corrosion monitoring location (CML) program for facility piping. The CA process assigns risk values to the various piping systems after which a CML selection criteria is followed. This is a documented approach and allows strategic placement of CML’s. The workshop will include interactive participation in a CA of a facility and subsequent CML selection. IRISNDT

Maxbell – Tom Elder Crane 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM ASME IX: Welding Procedure Specification (WPS) and Qualification Record (PQR) This course provides a basic understanding of how to review welding procedures and their associated qualification records. To accomplish this objective, the course starts with a review of ASME Section IX, part QW, focusing on understanding the QW-250 welding variable tables and their connection to welding data. A portion of the day will be spent reviewing at least two WPS-PQR combinations depending on time. The course is great for those new to welding procedures and an excellent refresher for experienced professionals. The course will reference the 2019 Edition of the ASME IX Code. CASTI
