Table of Contents

Construction Drawings and Specifications (12.5 Hours) Describes how to determine the insulation requirements of a project by interpreting construction drawings. (Module 19309)

Trade Math and Layout (7.5 Hours) Reviews some basic arithmetic and geometric concepts applicable to the mechanical insulating craft. Building on these basic skills, trainees then learn drafting and layout methods that they will frequently use throughout their careers. (Module 19212)

Heat Transfer (2.5 Hours) Describes methods of heat transfer and moisture migration and discusses the application of various types of insulation to slow or prevent these processes. (Module 19303)

Flexible Foam Insulation (25 Hours) Covers proper tool use and procedures for installing flexible foam insulation, including how to cut and install flexible foam insulation on pipe fittings, valves, flanges, equipment, and air ducts.(Module 19201)

Air Duct Systems (7.5 Hours) Covers the identification of various duct systems and their associated components. (Module 19302)

Blanket Insulation for Ducts (7.5 Hours) Covers fiberglass blanket installation to ducts and apparatus and discusses vapor-sealed blanket insulation facings.(Module 19202)

Board Insulation for Ducts (20 Hours) Covers fiberglass board insulation applications, such as cutting fiberglass board insulation to fit over standing seams and stiffeners, vapor-seal applications, and cutting and installing fiberglass board insulation on round or oval ducts.(Module 19203)

Cements and Fabric Finishes (10 Hours) Covers the proper use of finishing tools, cleanup and protection procedures, and the limitations of cements, fabric finishes, and mastics.(Module 19208)

Insulation Adhesives (5 Hours) Covers the identification, application, and use of adhesives.(Modules 19304)

Vapor Retarders and Insulation Coatings Addresses the need to avoid the intrusion of water vapor into porous insulation and vapor retardant materials available to mechanical insulators. Trainees will also learn how to apply vapor-retardant mastics and membranes for common insulating scenarios.(Module 19211)

Steam and Process Water Systems (10 Hours) Covers the identification of steam and condensate piping and describes steam and process water systems and their components. (Module 19305)

Calcium Silicate/Expanded Perlite Pipe Insulation (20 Hours) Discusses the safe handling and storage of calcium silicate pipe insulation, how to make accurate cuts, and how to install single- and double-layers of calcium silicate pipe insulation.(Module 19204)

Rigid Foam and Cellular Glass Insulation (12.5 Hours) Covers the proper use of tools; handling and storage of rigid foam insulation; measuring, cutting, installing, and sealing rigid foam plastic and cellular glass insulation; cryogenic installation; expansion joints; contraction joints; and vapor stops. (Module 19206)

Industrial Boiler Systems (7.5 Hours) Describes boilers and related equipment, and their insulation requirements. (Module 19306)

Mineral Wool Insulation (12.5 Hours) Describes how to measure, cut, and score mineral wool insulation. Discusses attachments used on mineral wool, installation methods, sealing requirements, and how to use pin welding equipment. (Module 19205)
