Niton UK has announced that, in co-operation with API training provider Analytical Training Consultants and Thermo Scientific, it is organising two free seminars.

These will cover API Recommended Practice 578 (2nd Edition) and the latest techniques and technological developments in positive material identification (PMI) testing.

The seminars will be run in Aberdeen on 5 November 2009 in association with the British Institute of Non Destructive Testing.

With so many safety-critical component parts on any process plant, it takes just one to be of the wrong material to pose a potential hazard and serious risk.

Items such as valves, flanges, pipes, pumps and fasteners need to be made of the correct material and not be substituted, even accidentally, to maintain the integrity of the plant installation.

According to Niton UK, PMI is the most effective way to ensure that the components installed are to the correct specification, eliminating any danger for the facility, personnel or the environment.

The only safe method of implementing PMI is to inspect and evaluate 100 per cent of all components being utilised in the critical elements of an installation.

The most appropriate time to undertake this is not only as the component parts arrive on site or are taken from the store but also once they have been physically installed.

The seminars are free to attend and a buffet lunch will be provided between the two sessions.
