Time: 10am-12pm

Improper piping of steam equipment, and failure to properly consider steam’s thermodynamic properties and the effects of the bi-phase steam system often results in early equipment failure and wasted energy. This course highlights some important details and principals behind those details as a way to avoid those issues. Part 1 of the course discusses steam hammer and how to avoid it; proper piping of heat transfer equipment (with concentration on steam coils and shell and tube heat exchangers); and air venting. Part II addresses various ways to utilize heat in high temperature condensate, which might otherwise be lost as wasted flash steam. Three short videos supplement the course to support written material. At the conclusion the student should have a better understanding of some of the ways that proper design results in better use of
steam’s energy and longer equipment life.
