If yes, then book an Armacell CPD today!

Armacell UK offers a series of CIBSE approved lunchtime learning seminars for mechanical services engineers. Courses are held at engineers’ offices, where a buffet lunch is provided.

The courses currently available are:

• Mechanical services insulation materials

A review of the different types of mechanical services insulation available for HVAC-R pipe and ductwork equipment, and the key considerations when specifying materials, including fire performance, energy saving and thermal-conductivity ratings, condensation control, acoustics and installation methods.

• Environmental insulation standards

An introduction to the environmental considerations and assessment methods when specifying thermal insulation materials, including: BREEAM Green Guide ratings; Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certificates; life-cycle assessments; global-warming and ozone-depletion potential ratings; the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS); Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme; Thermal Insulation Performance (TIP) Checks; payback periods; and CO2 savings.

• Building Regulations guidance for HVAC-R insulation materials

A review of the Building Regulations and standards governing pipe and duct insulation, including: BS 5422 (Method for specifying thermal insulating materials for pipes, tanks, vessels, ductwork and equipment operating within the temperature range -40°C to +700°C); Part L and the Domestic and Non-Domestic Compliance Guides; water supply regulations; and fire regulations (BS 476 fire tests and Euroclasses).
