Pipefitters Handbook

SKPT 106

Course Description

Prerequisite: SKMA 097 or MTH 097 with a grade of "C" or better. Explores mathematical calculations including geometry and trigonometry. Includes: pipe bends, linear expansion of piping, tank capacities, leverage, methods of layout angles, pipe-fitting calculations, pipe-welding layout, and reference tables. (45-0)

Outcomes and Objectives

Understand plumbing symbols and associated piping configurations.

Objectives:

  • Study and demonstrate plumbing vocabulary.
  • Use some mathematics to solve set, run, and travel.
  • Identify safe practices regarding piping systems and their relationship to plumbing code.
  • Perform calculations for simple bends, wrinkle bends, single offset bends, double offset bends, and expansion bends.
  • Show understanding through calculations of linear expansion of piping.
  • Perform methods of laying out angles, squares, elliptical-shaped hole on steel plate, bolt holes on flanges, and ring gaskets.

Use basic mathematics and trigonometric functions to solve piping problems.

Objectives:

  • Layout wrap around, two-piece 90 and 45-degree turns; four-piece 90 degree turns.
  • Determine the length of cut pieces for three and four-piece 90-degree turns.
  • Use and interpret reference tables to gather information about piping, fittings, and other fittings for piping systems.
