Piping Systems

Course Status:

In this course we look at pipe work systems for water, air, steam, fuel oil, chemicals and fire protection.

On completion of this training course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the requirement to select the correct type of piping material for chemical piping systems
  • Identify and describe acids commonly used in commercial processes and what type of pipe would be suitable for this application.
  • Identify caustics commonly used in commercial processes and the considerations for selecting piping materials.
  • Describe a typical compressed air piping system and the safety guidelines that apply when work is being carried out.
  • Describe a typical fuel oil piping system and specify considerations for selection of materials for fuel oil piping systems.
  • Describe a typical steam piping system and explain how the properties of steam influence the type of piping material to be selected.
  • Identify the different types of water piping systems and describe considerations for selecting piping materials.
  • Distinguish between the following types of fire sprinkler systems and their various applications • wet pipe • dry pipe • deluge water spray • ESFR • dry chemical • wet and dry riser • foam water
  • Classify the various types of valves and components used in fire sprinkler systems.
  • Explain the requirement for standard identification system on pipe.
