Just Released: Mobile-Ready Industrial Courses from the Operator Responsibilities and Plant Science Series!

RedVector is happy to announce these five mobile-ready industrial courses!  These courses were developed in an effort to make the courses future-proof, removing Flash-based elements, and replacing the content with mobile-ready content.  Same great content, now available on an iPad (or computer) near you!

Operator Responsibilities: Introduction

How much do you know about how plants are operated? In this online interactive course we will cover how in a plant, many different systems work together to turn raw materials into finished products. Many different people work together to make sure the systems work the way they should. Some of these people are the plant operators who are responsible for running the process systems.

Operator Responsibilities: Plant Production and Safety

The primary responsibility of a plant operator is to ensure that a unit functions safely and efficiently. To fulfill that responsibility an operator must be able to perform different types of duties under a variety of operating conditions. In this interactive online course, we’ll focus on operator responsibilities related to plant production and we’ll examine some safety responsibilities and regulations that apply to various operating conditions. We’ll also examine some safety permits and regulations that operators must be familiar with.

Plant Science: Heat

This interactive training is designed to introduce you to some of the basic principles associated with heat and heat transfer. In this course, we will describe some of the effects of heat, the relationship between temperature and thermal energy, and the Law of Energy Conservation. We will define the terms sensible heat and latent heat. Also, we will discuss the effects of pressure on the temperature at which a substance undergoes a phase change.

Plant Science: Heat and Plant Science: Heat Transfer

We will define the terms sensible heat and latent heat. Also, we will discuss the effects of pressure on the temperature at which a substance undergoes a phase change.

Plant Science: Process Dynamics and Measurement

This interactive online course is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of heat transfer and the basic operation of a typical heat exchanger. We will describe the effects of a temperature difference on heat transfer and the three modes of heat transfer. We will also explain the basic operation of a shell and tube heat exchanger and identify problems that can occur in a heat exchanger.
