Pneumatics: Pneumatic Instrument Tubing

SKU: RVI-11172Duration: 60 Minutes

In any industry that uses pneumatic instrument systems to monitor and control plant processes or conditions, you'll discover miles of associated pipes and tubing routed throughout the plant. Without these intricate networks of piping and tubing, a plant couldn't operate. The important job of installing pipe and tubing for pneumatic control systems often belongs to you, the instrument technician. You'll be concerned specifically with installing pipe for instrument air supplies and tubing from one component to another in pneumatic systems that control process variables. Our goal in this interactive online course is to examine the basic skills and information you need to know to install piping and tubing for a pneumatic control system. To meet this goal, we'll observe a qualified technician as he puts a piping and tubing installation together. We'll take a close look at the materials and tools he uses and the technique he applies. However, before we start to do any actual work with pipe or tubing, we need to establish what pipe and tubing are, and we need to take a look at the major characteristics of each; their function, the important size factors for both, and the type of material they're made of. By doing this, we'll have a better understanding of how pipe and tubing are similar in some respects but different in others.
