Installation of Pressure Reducing Stations, is part of a series of  online courses designed with installers of pressure equipment in mind. The course first discusses regulations, laws, and standards, then moves into specific requirements for pressure reducing stations.

At the beginning of the course students asked to print a "Checklist of Questions" related to the installation of pressure equipment which may then be used as a guide when in the field.

Learning Outcomes
After completing this course, students will be able to:  

  • Explain why boiler regulation was needed, and how it became standardized.
  • Describe how nationally recognized codes and standards are used to create local jurisdictional laws and regulations.
  • Identify codes that are particularly relevant to installers of pressure-retaining items.
  • Identify organizations that have been key to the development of codes and standards.
  • Describe the functionality and basic design of a pressure reducing station.
  • Identify the ASME (B31.1) and NBIC Part 1 rules governing the design and installation of pressure reducing stations and associated pressure relief piping.
  • Explain when to use and how to determine the size of the required pressure relief devices (PRDs).
  • Recall the contents of B31.1 Nonmandatory Appendix II, Rules for the Design of Safety Valve Installations .

Reference Materials
Although not required, each student may find it helpful to have the following materials (currently mandated edition):

  • National Board Inspection Code, Part 1, Installation
  • ASME Section I, Rules for Construction of Power Boilers
  • ASME Section IV, Rules for Construction of Heating Boilers
  • ASME Section VIII, Div. 1, 2, and 3, Rules for Construction of Pressure Vessels
  • ASME B31.1, Power Piping
  • Calculator

Note: ASME Code and Standards may be ordered through the ASME website.

Criteria for Successful Completion
As a minimum, for a National Board Certificate of Completion to be issued, students must:

  • actively participate in all online course interactions
  • respond to all knowledge check questions
