COURSE TITLE: Basement Insulation Basics
COURSE NO: T03-006
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Basement Insulation Basics
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the good practices for insulating basements in new and existing homes.

 

There are many considerations to account for when making decisions about insulation. Costs, codes, energy efficiency, pest control, moisture management; the list goes on. Coupled with the large variety of insulation options including mineral fiber, mineral wool, foam boards, foam sprays, polyisocyanurate, etc., it is important to be aware of what options best suit a project’s particular conditions.

 

Codes are also constantly changing. While it is beyond the scope of this course to provide a comprehensive view of all basement insulation codes, it does discuss many common codes relevant to basement insulation projects, as well as changes to codes in recent years.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, energy professionals and construction personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of basement insulation applications.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding what considerations should be taken into account when looking at basement insulation options
  • Familiarizing with the variety of insulation options
  • Understanding the problems associated with the choice of insulation
  • Familiarizing with codes which must be met for projects involving basement insulation
Course Document

COURSE TITLE: Insulation Audit and the Economic Thickness of Insulation
COURSE NO: T04-005
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Insulation Audit and the Economic Thickness of Insulation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides insight to the energy loss from an inadequate or uninsulated surface and discusses "how much" insulation is adequate on economic criteria.

 

Consideration of cost and conservation of fuel warrant a close assessment of insulation systems in the existing installations and new projects. Identifying the rate of thermal energy (heat) loss from an inadequate or uninsulated surface is the starting point for understanding the incentive for installing thermal insulation.

 

A thermal insulation thickness that satisfies an economic assessment of the minimal cost of owning and operating a thermal system is commonly called the economic thickness. The economic thickness pays for itself besides earning a return over its original cost. From this definition, any changes occurring in the prices of fuel or in the insulation cost will tend to shift the economic thickness to another value. Therefore the insulation levels, which were uneconomical in the earlier years, may be quite lucrative now due to drastic increase in fuel prices in the recent years. Based on the prevailing cost structure one has to review the entire insulation system and assess if additional insulation is necessary to achieve optimum economy.

 

This 4 PDH  online course is applicable to mechanical, chemical and process engineers as well as system design engineers working in power, P&C, refineries, fertilizers, metal & mining, manufacturing and engineering industries. This course is also intended for energy auditors, operational and maintenance personnel, health & safety personnel and loss prevention engineers.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Assessment of thermal losses
  • Understanding thermodynamic equations governing heat transfer from flat and cylindrical surfaces
  • Understanding the concept of insulation audit (instruments and measurements)
  • Learning computation of heat losses and surface temperatures with real time examples
  • Learning about the potential of energy saving opportunities
  • Familiarizing with economics and payback analysis
  • Understanding the factors affecting insulation degradation and effective maintenance practices
  • Knowing the parameters affecting quality of insulation job
  • Understanding the concept of economic thickness of insulation

COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Overview of Insulation Materials
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of insulation materials including their properties, selection, applications and benefits.

 

Prevention of heat loss by application of insulation is the simplest method of achieving substantial economies in energy. Some estimates have predicted that insulation in US industry alone saves approximately 200 million barrels of oil every year. The other benefits include the improved productivity, enhanced environmental quality, personal safety, process control, reduction in noise levels and also the fire safety.

 

The most important characteristics of an insulation material is low thermal conductivity, low tendency toward absorbing water, and of course the material should be inexpensive.  The type of insulation selected should be able to withstand whatever conditions it will experience without degradation. In process industry, the most common insulators are various types of calcium silicate or fiberglass.  Calcium silicate is generally more appropriate for temperatures above 225°C (437°F), while fiberglass is generally used at temperatures below 225°C (437°F).

 

This 5 PDH online course is aimed at mechanical, chemical & process engineers; system design engineers working in process, manufacturing and engineering industries; energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, health & safety personnel and loss prevention engineers.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding the application, characteristics and benefits of insulation to industry
  • Learning about the key properties of thermal insulation products
  • Understanding the selection aspects of insulating materials
  • Learning about the organic & Inorganic type of insulation materials
  • Learning how to classify of insulting materials on hot and cold surfaces
