Boiler Instruments and Controls

3.0 3 Reviews SKU: HR00900CENDuration: 60 Minutes

This course is designed to review some of the major points covered in previous courses of the heat rate improvement series, and to cover additional points related to boiler efficiency. After completing this course, participants should be able to describe how changes in parameters that are monitored in the control room can affect boiler efficiency. They should also be able to identify conditions that an operator should routinely inspect at the boiler and its associated equipment.

the examples are very dated and maybe the name of this course should reflect that, i have recently

“the examples are very dated and maybe the name of this course should reflect that, i have recently been to facilities that still have a operations room like this but they also have a DDC version that you can look at on 1 computer as apposed to 1000 gauges.”
