Making Decisions with Insulation is designed to take the student through all aspects of insulation selection and design. Beginning with some of the theory involved with insulation on a pipe, the student will also learn how to analyze a given installation and select an insulation type and thickness that is both economical and safe for plant personnel. The student will also learn the importance of the local dew point temperature and how this may impact the choices they make. Also included in this course is an example problem to illustrate the calculation involved in estimating the energy savings from a well designed insulation system. A MS Excel spreadsheet is also included to help predict line temperatures given the appropriate inputs.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
