This course presents advanced design and installation concepts for process piping and mechanical systems required for industrial and manufacturing construction applications. Topics include detailed descriptions of piping material typically found in industrial applications, why these materials are used in their applications, design considerations including thermal expansion, structural supports, ideal velocities, corrosion characteristics and other installation requirements. Also included will be process exhaust abatement systems and other large scale process systems found in several industrial and manufacturing applications.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will learn characteristics of various materials used in process piping applications including corrosion, expansion, joining methods, and quality control through lectures, textbook reading assignment and handouts.
  2. Students will learn about piping applications for various systems including chemical, process drains, process gas, high-purity water, drinking water, etc. through lectures, textbook reading assignments and handouts.
  3. Students will identify installation requirements including support, expansion loops, valves, heat trace and insulation through lectures, textbook readying assignments and handouts
  4. Students will learn about process acid, base and solvent exhaust abatement systems, DI water, chemical and gas equipment through lectures, textbook reading assignments and handouts.
  5. Students will identify various quality control requirements for high purity, drinking water, clean for oxygen service, including documentation, texting requirements, etc. through lectures, textbook reading assignments and handouts.
