Aimed at informing participants in the fundamentals of liquid piping systems, KASA Redberg will hold its annual liquid piping courses in Perth on the 13th and 14th October, and in Brisbane on the 27th and 28th October.
As a general rule of thumb, piping accounts for:
- 30 percent of the material costs of a process plant or water treatment facility
- 30 percent of the construction labour; and
- 40 percent of the total engineering time expended in designing, installing or commissioning a plant.
For example, incorrect selection of piping materials, end connections, valves, fittings and support systems are all too common in industry.
The purpose of these two day liquid piping courses is to provide basic instruction on the design, operation and maintenance of liquid piping systems.
At the completion of the seminars, delegates will able to:
- select the most appropriate material and pipe type for the application
- determine the correct pipe schedule for an application.
- understand cavitation and water hammer.
- select the most appropriate valve type for an application; and
- understand control valve sizing.
These liquid piping courses are appropriate for:
- process, design, project and consulting engineers
- line managers and supervisors
- maintenance technicians
- pump sales representatives; and
- anyone who needs to select, specify, commission, install and/or maintain liquid piping systems and pipelines.
