By taking this course, participants will be provided with the necessary knowledge to demonstrate the principles of operations and maintenance (O&M) in a mechanical technician’s work environment.
This course has been designed to provide participants with an understanding of the information that is required for the proper construction, operation, and maintenance of heat exchangers. Inspections and regulations vary depending on the application and current regulations, therefore technicians must be aware of these when working with heat exchangers. Having this awareness will allow each technician to properly address the different troubleshooting techniques and testing procedures.
Upon completion of this course, participants should have a better understanding of the technology related to heat exchangers within the industry. Having this knowledge will help each technician develop confidence and professional enthusiasm, therefore, increasing their efficiency. The knowledge that technicians gained from this course will be further expanded by on-job training and practical experience they will receive throughout the duration of their career.
Heat Exchanger Types and Operation
- Primary function of heat exchangers
- Types of heat exchangers
- Leakage problems, cause, and identification
- Safety issues
On the first day, participants will be introduced to the different types and primary functions of heat exchangers, specifically the basic design and primary components. The identification and causes of leakage will also be covered, along with safety issues.
Operations and Maintenance
- Diagnostics and troubleshooting
- Maintenance and repair
Day two will cover maintenance and repair of heat exchangers. Topics from diagostics to troubleshooting will be covered, as well as different troubleshooting techniques.
This course is mainly targeted to mechanical technicians in oil and gas industry. The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment purchasing, procurement, storage, and job planning as well as immediate supervisors of the working technicians.
Participants taking this course should have attended a mechanical or technical awareness course.
