The API 653 standard states the requirements for maintaining the integrity of steel storage tanks after they have been placed in service, and addresses inspection, repair, alteration, relocation, and reconstruction. The API 653 specification is applicable for steel storage tanks built according to API 650 or its predecessor API 12C.

During a 3 day instructor led virtual course the API 653 requirements will be explained from a managerial and business prospective. Thereby giving the participants a working understanding of the API 653 requirements. Detailed explanations of all the information and techniques covered in the API 653 'Body of Knowledge' are given, including the ASME welding requirements for storage tanks built to ASME section IX and API 650.

The course consists of 6 online live instructor led sessions spread across three days. All training content is provided through your EngineeringTrainer account.

After the course you maintain 1-year unlimited access to the course, including any new course material. This allows you to perform modules again should you need to refresh your knowledge.

Upon Registration Deadline we will contact you to arrange course dates and payment.

Results

After this course, you...

  • understand the information covered in the API 653 'Body of Knowledge' including ASME welding requirements for storage tanks sections IX and API 650. This includes ASME non-destructive testing principles and application of ASME section V.

  • have seen how to conduct a review of a steel storage tank designed to API 650 including weld sizes, tank nozzle reinforcement, brittle fracture, weld efficiency factors and post weld heat treatment.

  • have a sound overview of how the API 653 is applied for inspection, repair, alteration and reconstruction of tanks.

  • will be familiar with the inspection intervals, inspection requirements and their relationships to ASME codes.

  • can determine corrosion and minimum thickness and calculate the remaining life of a component

  • will understand inspection and degradation mechanisms of API 575, cathodic protection and internal coatings for storage tanks.
