Module Description: The aim of this module is to introduce the student to industrial oil fired appliances and installations, oil storage and tank installations.This module introduces the student to practical and theoretical knowledge of oil codes of practice, safety and current regulations.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Comply with the safe codes of practice with regard to oil safey regulations.
LO2 Explain the operating principles for a range of commercial oil fired systems, including installation, storage and delivery.
LO3 Analyse the technical design requirements of commercial oil burners and flues.
LO4 Survey data to produce efficiencies in commercial burners and flues.
LO5 Generate a sectional oil boiler, using four sections, front, intermediate and back sections, employing correct procedures and selection of tools and materials.
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

Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Building Regulations
Codes and standards within the industry. Health and safety hazards, protective clothing and personal safety, and environmental considerations.
Oil Specifications
Calorific value of oil, different grades of oil and their identification, origins of oil and oil based products, Oil pre-heaters, and redwood viscometer testing. `
Oil Storage and Supply
Compare the principles, safety features and installation requirements of oil fuel, storage, and supply, storage tanks, tank materials, installations, above and below ground storage, tank connections and access, tank filling, spill prevention, leak detection and overfill prevention, tank gauges, and corrosion protection, Bunding and containment, and alarm systems.
Oil Pipeline Installations
One and two piped systems, pumps - pumped oil lines, fill lines and termination points, piping materials, metering, filters, testing of the pipework network, corrision protection and pipe sizing.
Commercial Oil Burners
Single, modulating and duel-fuel, analyze the components and operating principles, codes of practice, burner control, start up and shut down sequence, basic fault finding, heating system considerations, servicing and commissioning procedures.
Sectional oil boilers
Sectional oil boiler - basic theory and building techniques employed, using correct tools, materials and correct sequence selection.
Calculations
Basic pipe and tank sizing of oil lines, fill pipes, and tanks. Stack loss percentage, flue gas temperature, carbon dioxide percentage, combustion efficiency, and air supply requirements.
Chimneys, Flues and Ventilation
Construction types, materials used, draft stabilisers, insulation, and cleaning points.
Controls
Fire valves, duel thermostat, frost protection and filters,
Combustion Efficiency Testing
Flue draught, smoke reading, carbon dioxide percentage, flue gas temperature, flue / appliance efficiency, found using maual and digital analyzer.
