Valid From: Semester 1 - 2013/14 ( September 2013 )
Module Delivered in 2 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: MICHAEL HOURIHAN
Module Author: Noel JBarry
Module Description: This module is designed to introduce the student to the installation and operating principles of steam systems, compressed air systems, medical/industrial gases and vacuum systems. It describes the operation of selected pieces of plant such as boilers, compressers, gas distribution, high and low pressure steam plants, safety, hazards and components.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Describe the operating principles of a range of industrial service systems.
LO2 Identify and apply safe working procedures on industrial systems.
LO3 List the critical components used on steam systems, compressed air systems, medical/industrial gases and vacuum systems.
LO4 Identify colour coding of pipework on various industrial systems.
LO5 Describe the safety and environmental requirements for industrial service elements.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
