Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. Refrigeration systems are common in the natural gas processing industry and processes related to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and chemical industries. Several applications for refrigeration include NGL recovery, LPG recovery, hydrocarbon dew point control, reflux condensation for light hydrocarbon fractionators and LNG plants. Selection of a refrigerant is generally based upon temperature requirements, availability, economics and previous experience. For instance, in a natural gas processing plant, ethane and propane may be at hand; whereas in an olefins plant, ethylene and propylene are readily available. Propane or propylene may not be suitable in an ammonia plant because of the risk of contamination, while ammonia may very well serve the purpose. Halocarbons have been used extensively because of their non-flammable characteristics.This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of refrigeration system commissioning, operation and troubleshooting. It covers the discuss mechanical refrigeration, refrigeration stages and condensing temperature, carryout horsepower and condenser duty estimation as well as design and operating considerations, apply considerations for vacuum refrigeration systems and identify the types of compressors, recognize mixed refrigerants, chillers an system controls as well as recognize absorption refrigeration and carryout principles of refrigeration processes. During this interactive course, participants will learn the illustrating of cryogenic processes and constant ? temperature refrigeration processes, identifying the need for refrigerant including optimum mixture composition, natural gas liquefaction process and cooling and liquefaction of air and its constituents, employing proper troubleshooting and problem solving processes, implementing the rules of thumb for troubleshooting and problem solving skills, applying gathering skills and interpersonal skills.
