The pipe sizing course is divided into four optional elements:

1. Pipe sizing by hand 

How to use the pipe sizing charts in IGEM/UP/2 in a fully-developed pressure loss allocation method, together with some little-known tips and tricks for sizing natural gas systems up to 75 mbar operating pressure.

2. Pipe sizing using an app - new systems 

How to use the Pressure Drop Calculator (PDC) developed by RAD Training for sizing larger natural gas and LPG propane systems for all pressure ranges, pipe diameters and pipe materials. Includes a copy of the PDC.

3. Pipe sizing ex
tensions to a system £36

How to determine the feasibility of adding new extensions to existing systems, including whether existing pipes will need to be upsized.

4. Understanding gas flow in pipes 

For the curious: a deeper understanding the physics and mathematics of gas flow through pipes, including a discussion of the limitations of the pipe sizing charts and formulae which have been developed over the years.

All prices include VAT.
Pre-requisite entry requirements apply to ACS assessments.
Training is not compulsory for ACS gas courses.
All ACS assessment elements require a core assessment.
