Identification and Construction
- Types of piping and tubing systems
- Pipe and tubing sizes
- Ferrous vs. non-ferrous
On day one, participants will learn about the identification and construction of piping and tubing systems. Several types of systems that will be covered include water supply, heating and cooling, sprinkler, gas, pneumatic, hydraulic, and process and power generating systems. Identifying pipe and tubing sizes by dimensions, length, and wall thickness and schedule will be covered. Finally, participants will learn about ferrous versus non-ferrous terms.
Maintenance and Diagnostics
- Natural forces that wear on piping systems
The focus of the last day will be the maintenance and diagnostics of piping systems. Special attention will be given the describing the types of natural forces that wear on piping systems. These will include thermal expansion and contractions, weight, electrolysis, friction loss, turbulences, micro biological, and galvanic action.
This course is mainly targeted to mechanical technicians working in the field as an introduction or refresher. The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment purchasing, procurement, storage, and job planning, as well as immediate supervisors to the working technicians.
Persons attending this training should have completed a mechanical or technical awareness course.
