Objectives and Key Deliverables
Objectives (not inclusive the trainer may advise other scopes)
• Attendees will learn the proper way to cut and deburr tubing, install, disassemble and reassemble a tube fitting, and identify basic thread types.
• Ensure components within your system have been correctly installed, and are performing optimally. You will learn to:
Inspect your fluid system installation
Identify correct tube fitting and fluid system component
installation and placement
Identify correct tubing types, placement, and support
Inspect tubing for proper, defect-free bends
• Select, troubleshoot, and maintain the valves that are critical to your operation.
Become familiar with fluid system concepts
Learn the differences in valve types and functions
Identify and resolve common fluid system issues
• Minimize leaks by introducing bent tubing to your system to reduce connections and leak points found in traditional pipe systems.
• Learn how to:
Reduce connection points and leak potential by using tubing in your installations
Customize tubing through correct bending techniques
• Choose the best hose for your application and extend hose life by understanding fundamentals of:
Hose construction and selection
Inspection and maintenance
• Improve system safety and maximize your material investment by learning to assemble cone and thread fittings correctly the first time.
• Prepare tube ends for cone and thread assembly
• Troubleshoot common system problems by identifying incorrect installations
• Fault finding (Instructor has pre-made fittings with fault and the guys have to find the faults.
• Different types of fittings used on PS1 (Oxy facility offshore), how to identify them and ensure there is no mismatch considering metric and imperial
• Segregation and control of different types of fittings
• Inspection of connected systems and use of Go/No Go gauges
• Tube bending techniques and ensuring fitting are not too close to the bend.
• Course should be part theoretical and part practical.
