Industrial Pipefitting Skills

Introduction

 

A piping system is a complete network of pipes, fittings, valves and related components that are designed to work together to convey, control and monitor a wide variety of fluids in the oil and gas and petrochemical industry. Each system is designed accordance to the condition and type of fluid to be conveyed, the temperature, pressure, flow rate and the working atmosphere of the system. These types of systems include chemical, gas and fuel oil, steam, water and cooling systems. At JTI, Pipe fitting program includes basic site and shop safety, hand and power tools, drawings and specifications, pipe related equipment, rig­ging and hoisting, Oxyfuel cutting, welding, skills related to the fabrication, installation, maintenance and repair of piping systems. The curriculum is based on the National

 

 

Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the requirements of local industries such as Saudi Aramco and Sabic.

Industrial Pipefitting Skills is a project based training program where students participate in the actual con­struction of various types of piping systems used in indus­try to simulate real fabrication situations, alignment and rigging installation techniques needed to develop the skills to be a competent Pipefitter.
