From the very start, I liked the idea of an online

program; however, I was concerned that the material

would be difficult to digest because of the lack of

a face-to-face experience that a classroom setting

offers. Let me just say that it didn’t take long for my

fear to leave me. Your approach to teaching made me

feel comfortable and I was able to relax.

Description

The focus of instrumentation and control systems has traditionally been on those industries that operate continuous pro-cesses, like petroleum refining and power generation. Those who view batch processes as nothing more than a series of short, continuous processes misunderstand the fundamental differences between the two and may incur lower efficiencies and higher operating costs than necessary. This training course will equip you with the basics needed for choosing, designing and manag-ing a batch control process.

Participants can expect to learn • to define the measurements needed and

the control elements to be manipulated in a batch process

• the attributes of both continuous processes and discrete processes that are related to a batch process

• the elements that make a batch process different from both continuous processes and discrete processes

• the elements included in a complete batch recipe

• to apply the IEC-61131 standard and the ISA SP88 standard to your batch processes • to maintain safety and flexibility in the

batch processes

• PLC- and DCS-based batch automation

Description

Since the performance of virtually all plant equipment and facilities is determined by the properties of the various materials which make up the components of those systems, how materials behave is a key part of failure analysis and the related predictive and preventative maintenance of industrial equipment. This course is a comprehensive introduction to materials science and engineering with a practical orientation.

Participants can expect to learn: • Materials at the atomic level

• Polymers and their structures • Imperfections in solids

• Mechanical properties and failure of materials

• Phase diagrams and transformation phenomena

• Physical properties of materials • Applications, fabrication and

environ-mental corrosion of materials

Dr. Carl Frahme has more than 40 years of business and industrial expe-rience in materials-related industries. In his previous position, he was involved in developing technology to convert mine tailings and mineral wastes into porcelain-quality ceramic floor, wall and roof tile made from 100-percent waste content. He has been an active consultant since 1987, which led to a wide variety of assignments and a number of employed positions. Prior to his consulting career, he was involved in R&D, product development, management, marketing and sales, and manufacturing. Target Audience

This course will benefit maintenance and reliability professionals, who must understand materials for their profession; engineers who have not had a materials science course or need an update in this area; scientists who need a thorough understanding of materials for research and application; as well as product designers, procurement personnel, and government regulators.

Description

The most recent study sponsored by the NACE International, The Corrosion Society, showed that the estimated direct cost of corrosion in the United States is $276 billion annually, equal to approximately 3.1 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product or to about $1,000 per capita annually. The good news is that they also estimated that between 25 and 30 percent of these annual corrosion costs could be saved with the application of good corrosion management practices. This course will help maintenance professionals understand the different types of corrosion, assess the corrosion behavior of materials and utilize corrosion prevention strategies.

Participants can expect to learn: • Corrosion of ferrous alloys and non-ferrous

metals

• Corrosion-assisted fatigue failure • Corrosion and degradation of ceramic

materials and polymers

• Mitigation of corrosion through material selection and design

• Inspection, monitoring and maintenance • Corrosion in different industries, including

manufacturing, production, energy and transportation
