A comprehensive understanding of boiler plant systems &processes is required to improve the efficiency of your steam generation. At this seminar you will study all aspects of boiler plant efficiency to show exactly where & how performance can be improved

Course Outline
After participating in the course, you will be able to:
  • gain a better understanding of the operation of your boiler plant processes and systems
  • identify areas where unnecessary losses are occurring that are reducing your boiler and plant efficiencies
  • know about new methods to improve your boiler plant’s efficiency
  • describe the basic control and safety application concepts for safe and efficient control and set up of the combustion process

Description A comprehensive understanding of boiler plant systems and processes is required to improve the efficiency of your steam generation. This understanding will help you to reduce the fuel, electricity and water consumptions needed for generating steam. At this seminar, you will study all aspects of boiler plant efficiency to show exactly where and how performance can be improved. Discussions are focused on, boiler plant operating parameters and systems to provide you with information on how to achieve maximum efficiencies and lower operating costs in your facility. Following the easy to implement ideas that you gain from this seminar, you will be able to develop your own plans to evaluate and target the areas of your boiler plant which need efficiency improvements.

Objective To provide practical information which you can readily apply to pinpoint and minimize boiler plant losses. This will result in improved boiler plant efficiency. 

Who Should Attend Managers, operators, facilities engineers, operating engineers, designers, supervisory personnel, mechanical and control maintenance personnel, inspectors and consultants interested in boiler plant efficiency.

The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
