Piping System Training is a course anyone in the piping system industry can use. This course provides real-world practical knowledge for junior engineers, is a good refresher course for senior engineers, and helps operations and maintenance supervisors, design and process engineers, and operators and maintenance personnel better understand how piping systems operate. This course provides the foundation of piping terminology, mathematics, and the underlying concepts and principles that determine the performance of individual piping system elements and the system as a whole. Piping System Training places an emphasis on understanding the relationship between components that make up the piping system.
This class is designed for developing core competencies and essential skill sets, giving you the ability to take what you've learned and apply it directly back on the job. We collaborate with leading companies to give you unrivaled training. Engineered Software has collaborated with Crane Co. to provide you with the most comprehensive training you can receive on piping systems.
Topics covered in this 2-day course include:
- basic terminology, units, and
physical laws that apply to fluid flow
- understanding the role of tanks and
- centrifugal pump operation,
importance of the pump curve, and power and operating
- head loss and pressure drop
calculations for pipelines, valves, and fittings
- control valve operation,
classification, sizing, and selection
- principles of process measurement and
- types of processes and process
equipment used in piping systems
- types of piping systems, key concepts
to understanding system operation, and how to
troubleshoot piping system problems
Classes are from 8 AM - 5 PM with four 10-minute breaks and one hour for lunch. In-class exercises are provided so bring a calculator to test out your new skills.
