Understanding how machines work is a vital in understanding any working with any type of machinery. This program will provide the basic knowledge and skills in mechanical systems management including the hand tools used, safety and health practices, lubricants and lubrications, and industrial rigging principles and practices.

    Thermal Systems

    Thermal systems are multipart assemblies of coupled components, showing a common structured behavior; for example a refrigerator is a combination of pipes, compressor, electric motor, heat exchangers, valves, insulation, casing, doors, lamp, etc., interacting to a common goal of cold production within. Thermal systems are found in many products, many of which can be found in industries such as manufacturing and industrial.

    Industrial process control is used in many industries such as oil refining, pulp and paper manufacturing, chemical processing and power generating plants. The development of large industrial process control systems was vital in allowing the design of large high volume and complex processes, which could not be otherwise economically or safely operated. In this introduction program, learners will dive into industrial process control by exploring the different areas of process control measurement such as common methods for measuring volume, motion, force, temperature, fluid flow, and electricity, fluid flow, and temperature. This program discusses the function of basic devices for measuring and controlling different kinds of variables in process control.
