Boilers, Boiler Controls, Combustion and Steam System Efficiency

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in this course you will be able to:

  • Increase the operational efficiency of boiler plant processes and steam systems
  • Identify areas where losses are occurring, reducing your boiler plant and steam systems efficiencies
  • Apply methods learned to improve boiler plant and steam system's efficiency
  • Ensure the safe and efficient control and set up of the combustion process by recognizing the basic control and safety application concepts
  • Improve production and process efficiency, and establish a road map to a more reliable steam system

A comprehensive understanding of boiler plant processes and steam systems is required to improve the efficiency of steam generating equipment and reduce the fuel consumed for steam production. At this seminar, you will study aspects of boiler plant and steam system efficiency, and performance improvements.

Discussions will focus on operating parameters for drum-type boilers and systems and will provide you with information on how to achieve maximum efficiencies. Armed with the easy-to-implement ideas gained from this seminar, you will be able to identify areas for efficiency improvement and assess their impacts and costs to your organization.
