1. GP101: Introduction to GeoPro Products
The first step to a successful grouting project is choosing the right grout. Take this short course to get familiar with GeoPro’s full line of geothermal grouting products and thermal enhancement compounds. Learn the appropriate uses and mix recipes for each product, as well as the many advantages our products have over the alternatives.
2.GP202: GeoPro Product Handling
This course focuses on proper handling practices to minimize the potential for issues in the field. Topics include general mixing guidelines, proper silica sand selection, water quality concerns, common seasonal issues and problems with formation losses. A look at proper mixing equipment selection rounds out the lesson leaving you with all of the information needed to ensure success during installation.
3. GP301: Quality Assurance
The end of a geothermal installation is a terrible time to ask if design specifications were met. Learn how to effectively manage the grouting portion of a geothermal project from design throughout installation without missing project milestones or overburdening the system designer, project manager or the installers with unnecessary work.
4. GP401: Technical Grouting Considerations
The role of thermal grout in the thermodynamic performance and the health of the deep earth environment of every geothermal installation cannot be overstated. This course covers an in depth discussion of the technical considerations governing grout selection including a detailed discussion about grout thermal conductivities and their effects on system performance.
