Description: This course is a condensed version of the four (4) day FRP831Field Inspection of Aboveground Chemical Bulk Storage Tanks course. While it suits many different needs, its content is structured for those that may consider themselves a junior inspector who wants to get into tank inspection and may want to build up experience required for becoming credentialed someday as a certified FRPI 8310 Inspector. Subjects enable insight essential for inspectors in training to immediately begin condition assessment of Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (“FRP”) Aboveground Storage Tanks (“AST’s”) that are in operation, whether in or out of service. Courses are conducted in the FRPI training and demonstration theater, with a maximum of twelve (12) participants per one (1) instructional leader. The one-hundred-twenty (120) inch projection screen with stereo sound, supplemented by dozens of hands on demonstrations integrating actual production materials, laminate cutouts and runouts, specimens extracted from equipment taken out of service, laboratory test remains plus inspection tools, provides for a tremendously interactive learning involvement. FRP laminate identification, visual imperfections, damage mechanisms plus integrity and leak testing course content makes up a significant portion of this course. This content also applies to inspection of pressure vessels, piping, ductwork, odor and air pollution control systems, underground storage tanks plus other such related process equipment. Learning Objectives: After attending this course, participants should begin to be able to: Identify tank component laminate types, express composition by layer and calculate thicknesses. Recognize originally manufactured laminate visual quality as benchmark for material performance. Recite and put to use appropriate inspection tools. Qualify and quantify laminate damage mechanisms and describe their potential causes. Investigate integrity and leak testing options based on advantages, disadvantages and limitations. Calculate estimated laminate degradation rates and remaining useful life. Discuss AST suitability for continued service. Consider inspection intervals based on findings. Apply principals governing proper use of applicable FRPI Standard Practices. Implement minimum reporting and record keeping procedures. General Course Content and Outline: Introductions. Overview of course content, agenda and learning objectives. Tank construction features and basic design. Explore FRPI SP1010, SP1020, SP1030 and SP1040, including: raw materials, laminating methods, fabrication, secondary bonding (welding), quality control, manufacturing
