The Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC) and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR) Present:
Fundamentals of Mechanical Integrity for Ammonia Refrigeration Systems
Virtual Offering May 17 – 21, 2021 - 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST – Daily
Produced by: Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC)
Hosted by: International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR)
About the workshop: Mechanical integrity (MI) is a significant part of the 14 elements included in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Process Safety Management (PSM) Program. This education program highlights the importance of Mechanical Integrity and how it relates to OSHA requirements. From pumps to vessels, this program will provide a comprehensive outline of compliance regarding Mechanical Integrity for Ammonia Refrigeration Systems.
For whom: PSM coordinators, utility supervisors, refrigeration operators/technicians, consulting engineers, contractors.
Topics to be covered: Introduction to mechanical integrity for refrigeration systems, mechanisms that degrade mechanical integrity in ammonia refrigeration systems, MI inspections applicable to pressure vessels, refrigerant piping, and key safety systems.
- Develop a foundational understanding of regulatory requirements that relate to managing the mechanical integrity of ammonia refrigeration systems.
- Become familiar with the codes, standards, and guidelines applicable to mechanical integrity for all ammonia refrigeration systems.
- Understand the various mechanisms that degrade the mechanical integrity of ammonia refrigeration systems.
- Basic principles applicable to conducting mechanical integrity inspections for piping, pressure vessels, and key safety systems.
CEUs are available: Participants may receive a Continuing Education Certificate reporting 10 contact hours, which will provide documentation for engineering (or other) Professional Development Hour (PDH) or Continuing Education Unit (CEU) requirements.
