Jurandir Primo, PE
This course brings practical concepts for Industrial, Cryogenic, Refrigerant & Scuba Gases – Fundamentals, in a very important didactic form, suited for everyone, beginners, students, technicians, engineers, contractors and all interested professionals, working or not, with gas distribution, petrochemicals, production, manufacturing, chemistry, medicine, civil or mechanical engineering. The concepts of this course are divided in 11 basic sections as follows: Introduction, Manufacturing Gas History, Gas Fundamentals and Laws, Gases Types and Basic Concepts, Main Industrial Gases Characteristics, Cryogenics, Cryogenic Gases & Liquids, Refrigerant Gases, Scuba Gases, Gas Transport, Storage and Safety, and Links & References, properly illustrated and clearly distributed in 48 pages.
The subject of this course is to show important guidelines according to Compressed Gas Association, Canadian Gas Association and other international standards. Industrial gases are specifically manufactured for several applications specifically at ambient temperature and pressure. Cryogenics is a branch of physics, which deals with the production and behaviour of gases and materials at temperatures below 120 oK (-243 oF or 153 oC). Refrigerant gases are chemical products used in refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners, such as heating, ventilating and air conditioning units (HVAC). Scuba gases are special tanks filled with special gases and simple compressed air (tested, filtered and dehumidified).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
