Boiler System Management: Operation, Maintenance, Troubleshooting



Boilers and steam generating systems are considered highly complex elements of equipment which operate at very high pressures and temperatures. These demanding operating conditions require good quality of construction materials and professional fabrication. Safe and efficient operation of boilers requires that a special attention to be given to the reliability of equipment for steam generation as well as efficient steam system management.

This course is intended to introduce delegates to safe operation of boiler units and the associated equipment for steam generation and steam distribution. Methods and techniques of energy saving related to efficient steam distribution system management will be explained in detail. The course will be primarily focused on practical aspects related to operation, control, maintenance and troubleshooting of problems encountered in boiler systems. The course will also cover reliability of boiler units, as well as on efficient management of the entire steam system. Practical examples and workshop exercises from real life industrial practice will be utilized throughout the training course to emphasize the key learning points.

Course Objectives: 

By the end of this training course, you will be able to:

  • Analyze the safe and reliable operation of boiler and steam distribution systems
  • Discuss ways of improving boiler performance and efficiency of steam generation system
  • Compare and contrast optimal improvement techniques for a given industrial application
  • Estimate the degree of degradation of boiler system due to corrosion and fouling
  • Identify the problems in operations and find the most economical solution
