Process Piping

Process Piping Design

Process piping is a system of pipes used to transport a medium (liquids and gases) from one location to another. But Process piping just doesn't mean only pipes. It also includes valves, fittings, and other components to assist in the conveyance of the medium. Some of you have seen piping in your kitchen laundry room or washroom. Residential piping is relatively simple in comparison to process piping. The process piping routes are often running in all directions and require various kinds of instrumentation to monitor the system.

Renewable Energy Basics

The United States currently relies heavily on coal, oil, and natural gas for its energy. Fossil fuels are nonrenewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In contrast, renewable energy resources—such as wind and solar energy—are constantly replenished and will never run out.
This information will educate you about the basics of the various renewable energy sources: solar, wind, hydrogen, geothermal, ocean, and hydropower. More

Fast Track Learning on Youtube

Fast Track Learning

Fast Track Learning By Discovery is a proven method of acquiring information or skills in an extremely efficient manner using short video segments.

Over the 30 years I have been an instructor I have developed a unique method of learning with the use of video that is fast but still on track to facilitate you learning the essential tools, hence the term Fast Track Learning.

It is self-paced so that you can take what time you feel is needed to grasp the concepts and manage your own learning. The process is broken down into various tasks that build upon each other. As you complete a task your knowledge and confidence will increase.

The videos are broken into short time segments to give you time to digest the information and to make it easier for you to find a topic if you need to review.
