Instructor Led – Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule)
The Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule) course is aimed at any person working with small bore tubing, twin ferrule. Pipes and tubing are an integral part of both onshore and offshore operations, so there is an ongoing need for them to be installed, constructed and maintained. This course identifies and discusses possible risks, such as corrosion, that have the potential to cause a hazard in the future. Learners will study how to assemble, maintain and check small bore tubing, twin ferrule, as well as production and instrumentation diagrams, the importance of adhering to line plans and exactly how to correctly fit and identify components that are applicable. Health and safety procedures are also detailed.
The material covered in the Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule) course is instructor led, including interactive classroom activities.
Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule)
Training Course Objective
This course is aimed at any person working with small bore tubing (SBT) twin ferrule. SBT is an integral part of both onshore and offshore operations, so there is an ongoing need for the installation, construction and maintenance of SBT. This course identifies and discusses potential risks, such as corrosion, that have the potential to cause a hazard in the future.
The material covered in the Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule) course is instructor led, including interactive classroom activities. Course topics and activities include:
- HCR (hydrocarbon releases) history and issues: Being aware of past equipment inspection and maintenance schedules to act as an effective early warning monitoring system for potential future incidents.
- SBT systems: A sound knowledge of the various systems so as to aid the construction and laying of pipes.
- SBT fitting details and identification: Being able to identify various fittings.
- Assembly instructions of fittings (twin ferrule): Being able to understand assembly instructions and perform assembly effectively.
- Storage of materials: Hazardous materials require specific storage conditions.
- Fault recognition: How to quickly identify faults present in/on various kinds of pipes and how to mitigate a recurrence of the fault in the future.
- Installation/maintenance practices: Describing installation and future maintenance requirements and procedures.
- Material selection: Picking the correct material for a pipe based upon the material that the pipe is going to be transporting.
- Production and instrumentation diagrams (P+IDs): Describing how to accurately interpret drawings.
- Corrosion awareness: Being able to identify potential warning signs of corrosion so as to mitigate equipment against damage.
- Measurement of lines and line plans: Description of how to ensure that all parts/sections fit properly. Use of hand bending tools: Correct operation hand bending tools.
- Health and safety: This course focuses on how to properly maintain and identify piping and tubing, identify components that need to be replaced and the current legislation regarding equipment in order to prepare work safely and ensure best practice.
Upon completion of the classroom element of this course the learner will possess the necessary theoretical knowledge required to safely assemble, inspect and maintain small bore tubing.
The Small Bore Tubing Awareness (Twin Ferrule) classroom course has a duration of two days. This knowledge can then be expanded upon by further practical training and experience which can be delivered as a follow-up to this course on customer site, lasting one to four days depending upon each customer’s requirements.
There are no pre-requisites for this course.
This classroom course can be supplemented with practical teaching conducted in the workplace.
