Pneumatic/Electro-Pneumatic Control Systems Course

This course aims to enable technical personnel to understand the Pneumatic and Electropneumatic Automation System better; improve participants operation, maintenance and troubleshooting skills. The Pneumatics and Electropneumatic course is a comprehensive, highly practical and interactive course. You will have an opportunity to discuss pneumatic systems specification, construction, design-applications, operations, maintenance and troubleshooting issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information and best practice in dealing with the subject. Learning Objectives At the end of this course, participants will be able to: Describe the basic physical principles of compressed air, basic SI units and other physical quantities used in Pneumatic and Electro-Pneumatic systems Read pneumatic schematics Understand the operation and application of standard pneumatic valves and actuators Perform simple circuit design using standard symbology and functions such as automatic return, logic control, speed control, pressure sequencing, reduced actuator forces and timing Work safely with pneumatic components and systems Troubleshoot and repair simple pneumatic problems Understand essential pneumatic terms and understand their key applications Discuss the correct operation, control sequences and procedures for the safe operation of various pneumatic systems Target Participants Maintenance Technicians/Engineers, Supervisors, Electromechanical personnel, and newly recruited Technicians Methodology Lectures complemented by hands-on exercises using various pneumatic components, valves and actuators.

Optimal Handling of Generators and Other Related Equipment

Starts: 4th May, 2020

Location: 20 Harvey Road, Sabo Yaba


Equipping staff In house to take charge of generator repairs and maintenance saves a lot of cost to companies. Companies who engage outside sources for their generators repairs and maintenance run the risk of incurring huge cost and downtime. This training is designed for people in charge of servicing and maintaining generators in companies to minimize cost and avoid downtime. It is purely a practical workshop with minimal theoretical session. Participants expected. All levels of supervisors and technicians are expected to participate, those who repair generators on behalf of their companies to a third party. Content: Knowing parts of generator and their functions Generator maintenance standards and practice. Practical session-demonstration with a sample generator with minimum capacity of 50kva Occupational safety and health administration (OSHA) standards and regulations Ben 08034113550
