Steam Class - Steam & Hot Water Training-Ohio

Pipe Valves offers training in the fundamentals of steam distribution and utilization. This training allows steam users to more efficiently manage their steam systems, which results in increased production and significant energy savings. These classes are held at Pipe Valves in Columbus Ohio. They consist of a classroom portion focused on concepts followed by a live steam demo in our fully functioning steam lab. Generally, they last about one full day (lunch is included in the $299 per person registration fee).

Steam System Design  & Utilization - is a look at the basics of steam systems to provide your team with a stronger foundation. We will look at each component and how they work together in the system.
