Mechanical Isolations

Introduction to Mechanical Isolations

In the Oil and Gas industry, Pipes, Valves, Flanges and Hoses are essential for moving dangerous liquids and gases around safely. In order for a high level of safety to be achieved, these system components are subjected to regular maintenance and remedial work; but how can you protect workers from the potentially harmful contents while work is being carried out?


In this course, we will look at the essential role that mechanical isolations play in securing a process system when a break in containment is required. We will also look at the different roles that are involved with making sure that every isolation is carried out correctly and not removed before work is complete. Finally we will investigate the different types of isolation and the means by which you can test the integrity of each.
