Assembly Courses

Installation and Maintenance of QVF® Equipment
Getting professional in Handling Glass - Learning about EC Directives on pressurised glass Equipment, safety rules and good manufacturing practices

Glass Assembling courses

We have been carrying out training courses on a regular basis for the assemblers of our customers for many years now. The new component system QVF® SUPRA-Line has optimized pipe ends and a new coupling system. Fitters now can use the same flanges for flat and ball & socket glass ends and even the same gasket. Nevertheless we focused on compatibility to former systems during development. So we train the participants on QVF® and Schott and their adaptation also. In addition to this, there is instruction in the fundamental theoretical foundations and correlations of Borosilicate glass.

Further, due to a limitation of the number of participants, closer attention can be paid to special problems of individuals, which come about as a result of this practical work.

QVF® Installation Training

Basic course

This basic course conveys the basic knowledge, which is necessary to work with glass safely. This knowledge is deepened through practical instruction in assembly and dis-assembly of frames, pipelines and equipment.
This course is suited for assemblers, who lack or have insufficient practical experience with glass, or for those who just want to refresh their skills.

  •  Introduction to glass as a basic material
  •  Fundamentals in glass apparatus construction
  •  Installation of pipe lines and glass apparatuses
  •  Basics of frame construction
  •  Assembly of frames
  •  Glass components and apparatus construction
  •  Compatibility with former programs
Basic Course

Advanced training course

This advanced training course deepens and expands knowledge conveyed in the basic course. Therefore it is recommended taking part in a basic course before booking the advanced training course.
The practical exercises include assembly work on valves, heat exchangers and columns as well as maintenance work on heat exchangers and stirring machines.

  •  Columns
  •  Exchange of a column section in an  existing column
  •  Maintenance of valve bellows
  •  Stirring machines
  •  Heat exchangers, shell and tube
  •  Maintenance and repair of heat exchangers
  •  Dosing pumps

This course is intended for fitters looking to systematically improve their skills. At the same time they are provided with the latest knowledge and experiences.

This course provides a forum for an exchange of experience at a high level sharing the latest news with each other at the same time.
