We offer the following training presentations on the following
- Variable flow pipework systems
- District and community heating systems
- Pipe system commissioning
- Pre-commission cleaning of pipework systems
Why train with us?
Compliance with codes
Existing design guidance can be time consuming to read and absorb but compliance with their content is critical for system performance and as a protection in the event of dispute situations. Our courses provide a more interactive approach focussing on the essential issues presented with extensive use of animated graphics.
Unique course material
Some of our course content is sourced from international designers and manufacturers and does not appear in existing UK guides or in other training courses. In particular, our courses on district heating and community heating draws on long established Danish experience in this field.
Complements SystemGuru software
SystemGuru designs systems strictly in compliance with UK and international codes. Users may sometimes wonder why it makes certain decisions or gives certain design warnings. Our courses explain the design principles on which the software is based.
Question 1: What is the maximum pressure differential a TRV should close against?
Question 2: What should the system flow rate be at minimum load conditions?
A. 5-10% of maximum load flow
B. 10-15% of max
C. 15-20% of max
Question 3: What is the optimal design return temperature from radiators connected to a system where the lead heat source is a CHP unit?
A. 40 or less
The correct answer to all 3 questions (as supported by the latest CIBSE and BSRIA guides) was… A.
One or more answers wrong? Your systems are potentially:
- costing more than they should
- wasting energy
- not controlling properly
In a dispute situation you would not be able to rely on CIBSE or BSRIA guides to support your designs.
All answers correct?
If you got all three questions right, well done – but you are probably spending a lot of time on design. Our SystemGuru software will check these and other issues for you significantly reducing your design time.
We can visit your offices and undertake training for groups of up to 15 engineers. Alternatively, we can provide access to an interactive PowerPoint presentation for self teaching. Please call us to discuss the options.
