Fundamentals of mechanical integrity for ammonia refrigeration systems

  • marimac 

This virtual course is presented by the Industrial Refrigeration Consortium (IRC) and the International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration (IIAR). It will take place daily between 6 and 10 June 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST. Participants will have the opportunity to learn vital new practices through live instruction from industry experts in the comfort of their own office via interactive virtual learning.


Mechanical integrity (MI) is a significant part of the 14 elements included in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Process Safety Management (PSM) Program. This online education program highlights the importance of mechanical integrity and how it relates to OSHA requirements. From pumps to vessels, this program will provide a comprehensive outline of compliance regarding mechanical integrity for ammonia refrigeration systems.

How is this course delivered?

  • Sessions will be conducted live, participants will be able to ask questions to the presenter in real-time, this is not a self-paced program.
  • The course will be delivered online synchronously daily for one week in 2-hour segments.

What are the objectives?

  • Develop a foundational understanding of regulatory requirements that relate to managing the mechanical integrity of ammonia refrigeration systems.
  • Become familiar with the codes, standards, and guidelines applicable to mechanical integrity for all ammonia refrigeration systems.
  • Understand the various mechanisms that degrade the mechanical integrity of ammonia refrigeration systems.
  • Understand basic principles applicable to conducting mechanical integrity inspections for piping, pressure vessels, and key safety systems.

Intended audience

This course is intended to serve as continuing education for industrial refrigeration professionals whose job responsibilities include ensuring the mechanical integrity of closed-circuit ammonia refrigeration systems. This audience would include plant managers; contractors; maintenance directors and supervisors; designers; utility supervisors; engineering managers; facility engineers; facility managers; refrigeration operators/technicians; mechanical and refrigeration engineers; and industry professionals who focus on regulatory requirements for ammonia refrigeration systems, such as PSM coordinators and state and federal regulators.

The course costing is:

  • IIAR Member Price: USD795.00
  • IIAR Non-Member Price: USD1295.00
