COURSE TITLE: Cooling Towers
COURSE NO: M07-001
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Cooling Towers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides comprehensive information on cooling water systems and describes different types of cooling towers, their mechanical components and the problems associated with cooling water.

 

A cooling tower is a device used in industry to cool hot water (by partial evaporation) before reusing it as a coolant. Water directly contacts surrounding air and a very small part (1-2%) evaporate. This evaporation increases the air temperature and humidity and decreases the temperature of the water making it possible to cool below the normal air temperature. Although this heat is usually transferred to a cool, flowing volume of water, final rejection is always to the atmosphere and, invariably, is accomplished by some form of heat exchanger.

 

The machines and processes of industry, as well as the air-conditioning systems for buildings generate tremendous amounts of heat, which must be continuously, dissipated if these machines and processes are to continue to operate efficiency. Water cooling is the most efficient method of dissipating heat.

 

This 7 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of cooling towers.

COURSE TITLE: Heat Tracing Systems
COURSE NO: E04-019
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Heat Tracing Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance on heat tracing, its different types (electric, steam, hot water), and its advantages and limitations.

 

The term heat-tracing refers to the continuous or intermittent application of heating pipelines, tanks, vessels or other equipment used for storage or transportation of a product (liquid, powder or gas). The purpose of heat tracing is to compensate or make up for the heat loss to the surrounding atmosphere in low ambient temperature climates. Some applications for heat tracing include; preventing fluid from freezing, maintaining process fluids at pumpable viscosities, preventing formation of hydrates and waxes in hydrocarbon liquids (oil, etc), and also sometimes to preheat part of a fluid system prior to initial startup or after a primary heating system shutdown.

 

The heat tracing is generally accomplished by employing electric or steam tracing and insulating both the process fluid pipe and the tracer together, using appropriate insulation materials and metal lagging. The decision between electric and steam heat tracing depends on various factors and this course outlines the pros and cons of both the methods.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to process, mechanical and electrical engineers, operations & maintenance personnel, as well as consultants and contractors who construct, build and manage facilities involving heat tracing systems.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding what is heat tracing and where it is used
  • Understanding the different types of heat tracing systems: electric, steam, hot water
  • Understanding the advantages and limitations of constant watt, parallel circuit, self regulating and skin type heating
  • Learning the control techniques: ambient air sensing or line control for optimum energy efficiency
  • Understanding the power supply, protection and safety devices
  • Learning about the various codes and standards governing the design and installation of electric heat tracing
  • Understanding three types of steam heat tracing systems: external tube tracers, cemented tracers and fully jacketed pipe
  • Understanding the do's and don'ts of steam tracing
  • Learning step-by-step approach for estimating the heat loss and selection of an electric heat tracing system
  • Learning the key factors affecting the selection of heat tracing systems
  • Learning the factors favoring and against the application of electric and steam heat tracing systems
