Boiler optimization is complex. Learn from an industry expert who will share the knowledge you need to achieve efficient, safe and reliable boiler systems and procedures.

Understand thermodynamics and the chemistry of combustion including optimization, heat generation control and pollutant mitigation. Examine existing and new hot water and steam system controls and strategies. Discuss operation and maintenance best practices for optimum use and extended life. Finally, determine when it makes sense to retrofit or replace boilers and the financial considerations and justifications associated with this decision.

During this session a sample wiring diagram of a boiler's circuitry will be examined in order to demonstrate what sequence a typical boiler follows for troubleshooting purposes. A diagram and corresponding information sheet will be provided at the session.

As a result of this training, you will be able to:

  • Discuss various types of boilers and how to achieve safe, low emitting and efficient operations.
  • Explain the proper use of boiler controls and the options available today.
  • Define effective operation procedures with an emphasis on water quality.
  • Describe hot water systems and the applications for condensing and non-condensing boilers.
  • Justify the decision to replace or retrofit boilers from a mechanical and economic standpoint.

Who should attend?

Mechanical engineers, design and build contractors, facility engineers and managers, energy managers, boiler plant supervisors and operators, and general maintenance staff responsible for boiler operations.
