Created by Swedish company Mittel two step casing involves a sleeve which surrounds pipework used primarily in energy pipelines. The sleeve serves to retain the heat within the pipe network so that it can be redistributed to wherever it is needed. Mittel’s electrofusion technology is one of the world’s most reliable jointing technology for pre-insulated district heating pipes.
NESCol can offer both the full two-day course for those with no previous training and, for those who have had previous experience a one-day refresher course.
