The purpose of the meeting is to provide knowledge in the field of designing heating networks and information about Radpol pre-insulated pipes

Radpol pre-insulated pipes and joints

Meeting description
We had the pleasure of training employees of the Kelvin company from Bielsko Biała in the field of designing district heating networks. Our expert – Hanna Bindarowska, who at Radpol S.A. serves as the Chief of District Heating Designer, she conducted the substantive training.

The design training covered topics related to:

  1. Legal standards
  2. Project classes
  3. Stresses and forces acting on the pipeline buried in the ground
  4. Permissible axial stresses in pre-insulated pipelines
  5. Maximum installation lengths
  6. Piping laying methods:
  • natural compensation
  • compensation with bellows compensators
  • preheating
  • preload

7. Calculations of the network with a computer endurance program.

The design training also covered practical applications of various solutions in a pre-insulated network. The issues of non-standard compensation (different angles of network refraction), location of branches, and even examples of connections of a duct network with a pre-insulated network were discussed.

The last part of the training ended with a practical demonstration of muffing conducted by Witold Niesiołowski – our heating expert Witold Niesiołowski. The participants of the training had a muffing kit with a burner at their disposal, thanks to which it was possible to perform muffing on their own.

Below are some shots from that day.
