First Class Edition 2.0 Objective Changes

In new printings of PanGlobal's Power Engineering First Class Edition 2.0, Learning Objectives 9 and 10 in Part A1, Chapter 1: Rankine and Brayton Cycles will move to Part A4, Chapter 2: Plant and Equipment Efficiencies. All Part A1 and Part A4 eBooks will automatically update.

 

These objectives are now located in Power Engineering First Class Part A4 Chapter 2: Plant and Equipment Efficiencies:

  • Objective 7: Describe the design, layout, and advantages of a gas turbine/steam turbine combined cycle plant.
  • Objective 8: Explain the total energy concept as it applies to a power plant.

This change was made to better align our books with the SOPEEC exam curriculum and will contribute to a more consistent learning experience and better examination results.

Refrigeration Plant Operator Edition 4

It is another exciting time for PanGlobal!

We are pleased to announce the release of Refrigeration Plant Operator Edition 4.

The content of Refrigeration Plant Operator (RPO) Edition 4 follows the syllabus structure to prepare students to challenge the SOPEEC interprovincial Refrigeration Operator Certificate of Competency. This syllabus is shared with the Ontario Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) Refrigeration Operator Class B Operating Engineer Certification.

Edition 4 has four books sold individually, as listed below.

  • Book 1: Refrigeration Plant Basics  (192 pages)
  • Book 2: Applied Concepts of Refrigeration (322 pages)
  • Book 3: Refrigeration Plant Support Systems (388 pages)
  • Book 4: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (222 pages)

No new chapters have been added to the new edition, however the chapters from the previous edition have been re-arranged into individual books. The advantage of this model is that it highlights the key topics captured in each book. This helps track the progression of content and helps the learner build a better understanding of the material. Each chapter in this book includes self-tests, where appropriate, that are designed to test your understanding. The end of each chapter also contains a set of questions for you to work through. Mathematical examples with fully worked out solutions are provided to help you understand the concepts.

New Boiler Operator (Fireman) Products

PanGlobal is discontinuing the Limited Power Engineer (Fireman) Handbook and publishing two new products in its place.

The first of these products, the Fireman Boiler Operator Handbook for Saskatchewan , presents learners with the knowledge concepts set out by the Technical Safety Authority of Saskatchewan. This handbook has been revised to reference current legislative and regulatory terminology in the province of Saskatchewan, notably removing reference to Limited Power Engineer as the revised regulations removed that category of certification.

The Boiler Operator (Fireman) Handbook presents the same concepts applicable for Boiler Operators and may be used as a general technical manual as Saskatchewan-specific legislation has been removed. PanGlobal anticipates that the material within the Boiler Operator (Fireman) Handbook will support Boiler Operator's in other jurisdictions where, previously, such material may have been absent.

Both products will be available for purchase in print format starting 2 July 2021. eBook versions will be available for sale the week of 5 July 2021.

Announcing the PanGlobal Corrections Contest Winner

Congratulations to Adam Anton!

We are pleased to announce Adam Anton as the winner of PanGlobal’s Corrections Contest. This contest, which ran for over six months, saw learners and instructors alike submitting corrections of PanGlobal’s learning products. Over the course of the contest, 80 submissions were received by our Subject Matter Experts, reviewed and compared to our current materials, and corrected where necessary.

Adam submitted ten (10) corrections which were reviewed and incorporated into PanGlobal's learning materials. As the contest winner, Adam has been awarded with a full set of Second Class (Ed 2.5) learning materials. When notified of his selection, Adam had the following to say:

"I am so pleased to have actually won a set of books from PanGlobal. It comes at a great time during a pandemic where just about the only thing there is to do is study! I have used the CIRKA content for all of my exams and some 2nd class exams, and would (and definitely have) recommended them to friends and workers. CIRKA won’t show you the answers which is good, because it enforces the learner to actually look in the books and find the correct answer. I would definitely recommend the CIRKA content for anyone pursuing any class of exams."

We thank everyone who participated in the contest for their submitted corrections, as the results further strengthen our accurate and precise materials. All corrections found on an ongoing basis are made available in MyPower under Corrections and Updates and are published in future print runs of our learning materials.

CSA B51 & B52

Full CSA code books now available for purchase through PanGlobal

In June, we announced that the Extract of CSA Standards would be discontinued due to changes in CSA Group’s content licencing. To support safety in the Power Engineering and thermal utilities industries, we have established a resale agreement with CSA Group to distribute the full codes.

We are happy to announce that the full B51: Boiler, pressure vessel, and pressure piping code and B52: Mechanical refrigeration code are now available for purchase as a print product from our eStore.

Product Information

CSA B51, Boiler, pressure vessel, and pressure piping code (nineteenth edition)

In keeping with CSA Group’s goal of harmonizing its standards with those of other countries to the greatest extent possible, CSA’s Technical Committee on Boilers and Pressure Vessels and its Subcommittees have, in the course of developing this Standard, worked closely with the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors in the United States and with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) committees responsible for producing the National Board Inspection Code and ASME’s Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code.

There are three parts to this Standard:

  1. Part 1 contains requirements for boilers, pressure vessels, pressure piping, and fittings. It is intended mainly to fulfill two objectives: first, to promote safe design, construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing, and repair practices; and second, to facilitate adoption of uniform requirements by Canadian jurisdictions.
  2. Part 2 contains requirements for high-pressure cylinders for the on-board storage of natural gas, blends of natural gas and hydrogen (hydrogen blends), and hydrogen as fuels for automotive vehicles. It has been harmonized with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard 11439:2013, Gas cylinders — High pressure cylinders for the on-board storage of natural gas as a fuel for automotive vehicles. In addition, the CSA Subcommittee responsible for developing Part 2 has consulted with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) committees responsible for developing CSA/ANSI NGV 2-2016, Compressed natural gas vehicle fuel containers, and CSA/ANSI HGV 2-2014, Compressed hydrogen gas vehicle fuel containers. The members of these two committees are dedicated to harmonizing their standards as far as circumstances allow.
  3. Part 3 contains requirements for compressed natural gas and hydrogen refuelling station pressure piping systems and ground storage vessels. These requirements have been allotted a separate part of the Standard to emphasize the differences between them and the requirements in Part 1, thereby facilitating their application.

 

CSA B52, Mechanical refrigeration code (twelfth edition)

The twelfth edition of this Standard provides the minimum requirements for the design, construction, installation, inspection, and maintenance of mechanical refrigeration systems, and is complemented by the practical implementation guidance B52 Handbook, helping to minimize the risk of personal injury. This Standard applies to all refrigeration systems installed, whether in new or existing premises, to systems that undergo a substitution of refrigerant, and to parts that are replaced in or added to the system.
