Fundamentals of Piping Theory

Program Objective

Learn the Piping Theory basics proficiently to understand the piping system and its related concepts, rules and the methods to be followed as per the codes in the industry.

Course Outline

Fundamentals of Piping Theory course gives clear knowledge about the piping and its industrial applications. Piping systems are like arteries and veins. It is required in distributing the fluids in industries. It is must for a piping engineer, designer & draftsman to know all about the piping, as the piping group has the main responsibility for the design and layout of the facility. Fundamentals of piping theory is about the piping engineering and its concepts and rules which need to be followed while creating the process drawings and piping 3D models. This course builds the skills required for understating the piping engineering to create the drawing for Power plants, Petrochemical setups, oil and Gas industry, and Food and Beverage manufacturing units etc.
