Description

A pipe is an essential component of an industrial plant. The piping system not only deals with the pipe, it also includes valves, bolts, fittings, baskets etc. The piping system varies from industry to industry depending on their need.  It helps in transfer of liquid gas or any other thing from one end to the other, so care should be taken while designing and installing the system. Periodic inspections and repairs need to be done in order to have a reliable operation. 
Material handling plays an important role in most of the industries. It helps in movement, storage, and control of materials. There are different types of equipment involved in this process. For example, conveyors, cranes, and industrial trucks etc.
This course is designed to provide a detailed guideline about piping systems, plant layout, heat exchanger and different types of material handling devices.
After completion of this course, students will have a clear idea about the piping system, its design and components, psychrometric processes and its properties, material handling principles and different types of devices like conveyors, hoists and elevators and cranes.
