Two online ammonia refrigeration courses in November provide opportunities to gain knowledge while avoiding travel. Both are part of the Process Safety Management Professional certificate program offered jointly by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Engineering Professional Development and the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC).

“Principles and Practices of Mechanical Integrity for Industrial Refrigeration Systems” is scheduled for November 2-6. Topics include:

  • PSM and RMP regulatory requirements for mechanical integrity.
  • Mechanical integrity-related failure modes for ammonia piping and vessels.
  • Recommended practices for conducting mechanical integrity inspections and tests.
  • Recognized and generally accepted good engineering practices (RAGAGEP) for mechanical integrity.
  • Non-destructive examination (NDE) technologies.

“Intermediate Ammonia Refrigeration Systems” is set for November 30-December 4. This course will focus on expanding attendees’ understanding of the equipment used in ammonia refrigeration systems and teach application-specific tips.
