Synopsis: This course provides an overview of what air receivers are and where they are used, then teaches students how to estimate the volume of an air receiver, which is one of the most common factors that determine whether a particular air receiver requires inspection.

The training then moves to appurtenances and piping associated with air receivers, and how to determine if a pressure relief device on an air receiver has the correct set pressure and relieving capacity. Additionally, common problem areas with air receivers and valuable inspection techniques are presented.
