Presenter: John Tonkin

https://www.2kg.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/John-Tonkin1.jpg2020 sees John's 50th year in engineering. Initially he had exposure to plant maintenance (steam, water, pneumatics, ash handling, boilers, turbines and pumping systems) and marine steam plant. A number of More








Aimed at Engineers, Technicians and Senior Foremen, the course aims to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills necessary to:

  • Select the most appropriate pipe specification and material for moderate duties
  • Match the selected pipe with the most appropriate fittings
