The High-Pressure Heating Distribution Piping Systems course is a three-day program for training on heating distribution systems. The program was started years ago to train workers and supervisors on how to readily recognize hazards associated with piping systems in steam tunnels. The program evolved to including high-temperature underground piping systems and building piping.
This study course is structured to explain the hazards associated in steam tunnels including steam and condensate piping and working on HTHW (high-temperature hot water) piping systems including MTHW (medium temperature hot water).
The course covers the science behind the high-energy in the distribution piping and the engineering of: 1) Piping and 2) Primary Elements of a System Design. In addition the course covers actual cases of accidents and how they could have been avoided. Finally, this High-Pressure Heating Distribution Piping Systems course instructs the attendee on recognizing the hazards from pipe under insulation corrosion to what to do in the event of steam condensate water hammer. The course is offers many good ‘rule of thumbs’ that are readily applied to many situations.
