Seminar pressure impact in piping on 17-18 February 2014 in Essen and 10-11 March 2014 in Munich the cause for pressure surges, steam hammers and pulsations in piping is usually to quickly close the faucets with increasing throughputs. Leaks and downtime during pipe systems are triggered often by pressure surges in liquid promotional lines as well as steam hammers and cycles in steam and gas networks. Transportation energy costs make a high proportion of the operating costs of a production plant. If piping systems are too conservative and there are too many outdated equipment, a very high pressure loss and thus unnecessarily high energy consumption arises. A piping system can be operated energy – and cost-efficient by optimizing the processes with a deeper understanding of the phenomena. In the two-day intensive seminar pressure surges, steam hammers and pulsations in piping on 17-18 February 2014 in Essen and 10-11 March 2014 in Munich offers the Haus der Technik on the fundamentals-oriented practical understanding of the processes occurring in pipes and piping systems for piping engineer, maintenance staff and operating engineers.
Supported by videos of practical attempts are taught to those methods, which are used to estimate potential hazards and risks, measures of prevention are developed. The presenter Dr.-ing. Andreas Dudlik, Mulheim, Prof. Dr. rer.
NAT. Habil. OLAF BleibaumFakultat environmental engineering, Amberg-Weiden College (formerly Technip GmbH) and Dipl.-ing. Anatole Lilienfeld TOAL, Technip Germany GmbH, Dusseldorf make the 2-day intensive seminar in the sections: Basics I – water hammer and cavitation shock, Basics II – pulsations: pressure pulsations in piping systems, part III: experimental design, measurement, prevention methods, part IV: computer-aided calculation for malfunctions and damage cases – application and limitations.
