Piping Systems: Part 3 - Valve Design, Pipe Tracing, Insulation and Natural Gas Transmission Systems

This webinar has not been scheduled yet.
Piping Systems: Part 3 - Valve Design, Pipe Tracing, Insulation and Natural Gas Transmission Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH live webinar will present information about several topics including valve design, piping equipment, corrosion protection as well as the design, construction and maintenance of natural gas pipelines. Some examples of the types of valves that will be discussed are check valves, ball valves, gate valves, globe and angle valves. The different procedures for sizing and selection of these types of valves will also be explored.


The course will also discuss pipe insulation and heat tracing. In liquid process piping systems, pipes must be insulated when potential heat loss cannot be tolerated, freezing potential exists, or the protection of personnel from hot piping is required. As with insulation, heat tracing is also used when potential heat loss from the piping cannot be tolerated by the process or when freezing potential exists. Heat tracing can be accomplished in several ways including the use of steam and organic/synthetic fluids.


Finally, the course will characterize the natural gas pipeline industry while exploring natural gas transmission systems along with their different components. Topics to be studied include the design, construction and maintenance of natural gas pipelines.


This webinar constitutes Part 3 of a four-part Piping systems series. While it is recommended that you take all four parts consecutively, you can still sign up for Part 3 only, as each of the four parts were structured to stand alone. For your convenience, we have provided a brief description for each of the remaining parts to help you decide which parts you wish to sign up for:

  • Part 1 presents information about initial stages of piping design, discusses P&ID’s, PFD’s, loadings as well as other design issues on a high level
  • Part 2 presents general piping design, discusses non-ferrous piping and corrosion in piping, and introduces valves
  • Part 4 presents pipeline construction procedures, discusses plumbing systems as well as industrial, commercial and institutional boilers


This 4 PDH webinar is intended for civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers, as well as design and construction personnel.

Learning Objectives

We recommend that you register for any webinar ahead of time, although you can still register online up to the start time of the webinar. If you need any assistance with last minute webinar registrations, please contact us at 877-322-5800.

Webinar Access

From the webinar access and completion instructions that you receive, you will be provided with a link to access the webinar platform from your computer to view the pesentation as well as listen to and interact with the instructor. Therefore, to get connected, you will need a computer with high-speed internet as well as microphone and speaker capabilities. We recommend using a headset connected to your computer for enhanced audio quality.

Alternatively, if your computer is not equipped with a microphone and speakers, you need to dial in using a phone line. From the webinar access and completion instructions, you will be also provided with a dial-in number to join the webinar and listen in. Furthermore, you will be provided with a link to download the webinar handout, or you can download it directly from you account, in the event you are unable to view the webinar on your computer screen.

Regardless of the connection method used, you will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor at the appropriate times either way. We recommend that you connect to the webinar approximately 10 to 15 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.

Certificate of Completion (PDH Credit)

Following attending the webinar, you need to return to the website and log in to your account to complete and submit the feedback form. Once submitted, we will email you your Certificate of Completion. You can also download it instantly, or at anytime, from your account where all your PDH records are kept for your convenience at all times.
