This training course covers the general operational and maintenance properties of installations.

The course gives substantive and practical answers to questions like:

  • What damage can occur in my installation?
  • What standards must materials meet?
  • How do changes in the process conditions affect the degradation of materials?
  • What are the properties of new materials?
  • Can production continue despite the discovery of cracks?
  • What forms of corrosion can be expected?
  • How can we act to prevent damage occuring again in the future?
  • Knowledge of the latest international standards
  • Knowledge of the most recent developments in materials
  • Understanding of the basic principles behind degradation mechanisms and translation into practice
  • Insight into ways of improving installation reliability

This course will be given in the Dutch language. More information can be found on our Dutch website.
