Presenter: John Tonkin

2020 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 years in the selling, commissioning and trouble shooting of pumping systems…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
  • Create a design which represents a cost effective solution to single pipeline systems for moderate duties
  • Design the most cost effective pipe work system for the conveyance of any type of fluid
  • Design pipe work systems which have more than one outlet
  • Define the causes of water hammer, calculate its transient values and offer appropriate actions which will reduce or eliminate its occurrence
  • Define the procedures necessary to install, test and commission a piping system
  • Suggest appropriate protective coatings for pipe work systems
  • Calculate the life cycle cost for a pipe system

Main Topics:

  • International and national Standards and Specifications
  • Pipe manufacturing methods & materials
  • Pipe fittings and their application
  • Jointing systems
  • Pipeline profiling and hydraulic gradient
  • Pressure, static, friction and velocity head
  • Calculating Total Dynamic Head
  • System head curves and their practical application
  • Introduction to cost-effective pipe sizing
  • System head curves
  • Pipeline profiling
  • Behaviour of liquids other than water
  • Compound pipelines
  • Designing suction and delivery pipe work systems
  • Water hammer: Calculation and prevention
  • Installation testing and commissioning of pipelines
  • Coatings and other protection procedures
