Presented by PPFA TIPS Product Line Committee
Thermoplastic industrial piping systems (TIPS) have been successfully used for over seven decades. To educate the engineering community to a variety of commonly used plastic piping materials, the TIPS product line committee of Plastic Pipe and Fittings Association (PPFA) has created a professional, generic (not favoring any one plastic material or manufacturer) tutorial. The purpose of the tutorial is to educate audiences to the dos and doníts of TIPS. The tutorial will include Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS), Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride (CPVC), Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), and Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) plastic piping materials.
This ten hour online course presents presented in colorful and clear PowerPoint with narration to include the following sections: Introduction & History, Features & Benefits, Engineering Design, Joining/Installing/Testing/Repairing Methods, Product Availability, Selecting the Proper Plastic Piping Material and Applications. The course also includes the Thermoplastic Industrial Piping Systems workbook (89 pages) consisting of over 300 pictures and charts. The workbook follows closely the tutorial presentation. The workbook is a permanent record of the TIPS tutorial and is a convenient method to have ready access to any of the course information.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
