IMM Basic Course On Operation Of Mobile Air Compressor



Mobile air compressors are commonly used for maintenance/ construction work in oil and gas facilities / sites. There is still a lack of knowledge on the safe operation and maintenance of diesel powered air compressor for many work leaders, technicians and engineers. The Industries need to address this problem urgently to ensure that all mobile air compressors are operated safely and maintained properly to avoid unnecessary downtime due to breakdown of mobile air compressor.


This one day training aims to provide participants with the much needed basic knowledge and skills in the safe operation and maintenance of diesel powered mobile air compressor.


Course Contents

  • Introduction to the basic parts and safety features of diesel powered mobile air compressor.
  • Basic step in operation of a typical diesel powered air compressor.
  • Duty of a Fire Watcher (Compressor Operator).
  • Maintenance of diesel powered air compressor.
  • Procedures required in operating of diesel powered air compressor in oil & gas Facilities / sites.

Materials Failure Analysis For Technical Personnel


Code: MFA

This is a three-day specialized technical training on Materials Failure Analysis / Investigation for Engineering / Technical Management Personnel is specially designed for all field / practising engineers and technical managers as well as those specifically interested in conducting failure analyses and / or materials failure investigations themselves with a systematic approach that are commonly encountered with metallic materials during metallic production / fabrication. Furthermore, the participants can also gain an insight on the importance of quality control especially in the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Shipbuilding Industries.



Through this technical training, technical managers and field / practising engineers who intend to gain an appreciation on the systematic approach on any materials failure analysis / investigation can be realised, and thus to broaden their technical knowledge on the essence of any engineering materials usages relating to maintenance, inspection, alteration and repair of in-service metallic facilities / systems in order to avoid unplanned shutdown and reduce unnecessary expenses. Essentially, they can make an in-situ sound decision whenever encountering for any materials fractures and metallic system failures and even can make a sound decision as to run repair-replace during shutdown and maintenance planning.


Course Content

Day 1: How to Conduct a Failure Analysis

  • Introduction: Understanding the relative importance of failure analysis.
  • Mechanical stresses / environmental- / chemical-influences.
  • The systematic approach for failure analysis.
  • Physical Testing, Finite Element Analysis, Fracture Mechanics, Determine the Type of Failure: Ductile Fracture, Brittle Fracture, Fatigue Fracture.
  • Root Cause Determination; Synthesize and Summarize the Data.


Day 2: How to Conduct a Materials Failure Analysis / Investigation.

  • Acquiring background information.
  • Equation for successful failure analysis.
  • Preliminary Examination; Failure Analysis Rules.
  • Material Evaluation, Environmental testing, Mechanical testing, Chemical analysis.
  • Metallography. 
  • Fractography. 
  • Special Testing; Fracture mechanics, Finite element analysis, Simulation.
  • Typical Non-Destructive Examination Methods.
  • Typical chemical analysis methods.
  • Typical Mechanical Testing Methods.
  • Analyze Data & Prepare a Report.
  • Technical Terms.
  • Case Studies: Mechanical & Metallurgical Failure Mechanisms.


Day3: Case Studies on common Failure / Damage Mechanisms.

  • Introduction - References to Common Standards, Technical Terms.
  • General Failure/ Damage Mechanisms - all industries.
  • Mechanical and Metallurgical Failure Mechanisms.
  • Uniform and Localized Corrosion.
  • Environment Assisted Cracking.



Participants should have at least a basic science and / engineering background with some years of field working experiences.


Who Should Attend?

  • This course is most beneficial to technical management personnel of all levels;
  • Operations / maintenance engineers
  • Welding inspectors
  • Supervisors
  • Planners
  • Coordinators
  • Junior and senior engineers
  • Design engineers,
  • Manufacturers / suppliers,
  • Fabricators
  • Engineering contractors,
  • Technical managers
  • Field / practising engineers who are involved in the project management,
  • Contract engineers
  • Schedule planning of related activities as well as operations and maintenance activities in upstream and downstream sectors of oil & gas facilities, refineries, process plants and petrochemical facilities.


Course Duration

3 days (practical theories, interaction discussion, various relevant case studies & course assessment test)
