Compression Fittings and Tube Bending

Course Details

The aim of this course is to provide a fundamental understanding of tube bending and the fittings used in the instrumentation process. Each candidate will understand the basic design principles of each fitting type and identify where they can be used.

Particular focus will be on potential health, safety and environmental hazards directly related to the equipment enabling the candidates to control any associated risks.

The course is partially workshop-based and practical training is carried out in our custom-built training workshop.
