PPR-CT is Random Copolymer Polypropylene, which is used in today’s HVAC and Plumbing market as a replacement for copper, carbon steel, stainless steel, PVC and CPVC. It has NSF 14 and 61 certifications, and is one of the up-and-coming technologies in the industry today
In today’s competitive environment, all industries have to consider the critical issue of rigging as
a key factor in the continued productivity of their operations. Industrial Rigging & Crane Signaling in
particular is a major focus
The United Association (UA) has addressed industry’s needs by developing an intensive course of study
that includes classroom and hands-on instruction using the latest rigging & signaling equipment and
materials. The UA Industrial Rigging & Crane Signaling Certification Program has been designed to ensure
that UA members are able to take on any rigging & signaling task they may encounter.
* open to 3rd,4th,5th YR. Apprentices and Journeyman with piping experience. Must be able to read Blueprints
TRIMBLE RTS TECHNOLOGY
Engineered and manufactured by the organization that introduced the first robotic total station back in 1990, the Trimble RTS series of Robotic Total Stations was designed specifically to meet the needs of building contractors. Because of this, the RTS Series significantly increases accuracy, reliability and productivity based on the unique applications and workflows of construction.
Robotic total stations allow you to automate tasks on your job site with ease. Through the use of robotic total stations, you can get faster and more accurate access to data and improve your workforce’s collaboration with real-time insights. Keep down your construction costs and eliminate the need for rework with field layout equipment from Trimble.
RTS773: The Trimble RTS773 features an integrated camera with a telescope view you can access remotely through Trimble Tablets and Trimble Field Links. This feature allows you to document locations from anywhere and get instant photo documentation on your as-built locations. The Trimble RTS773 is designed with maximum quality in mind and can be operated remotely using Trimble Field Link Software.
