Thorough pre-commission cleaning of pipework has become even more important with the adoption of energy efficient controls strategies that may result in low flow rates, particularly in terminal units with very small orifices in control valves.
The course will provide a better understanding of the issues and procedures involved with pre-commission cleaning and is aimed at those either involved in pre-commission cleaning or overseeing the process.
It will cover the main principles of pre-commission cleaning, as set out in BSRIA Guide Pre-Commission Cleaning of Pipework Systems and combine lectures, practical demonstrations and worked examples. The aim is for pre-commission cleaning to be achieved through a process of flushing and chemical cleaning (where required) followed by the addition of biocides and inhibitors. Systems designed and cleaned in accordance with BSRIA's guidance are far less likely to experience operating problems.
