4.0 1 Review SKU: AOCO00CENDuration: 120 Minutes

This course is designed to familiarize participants with the basic principles associated with combustion in a boiler and the flow of air and combustion gases during boiler operation. After completing this course, participants should be able to identify the elements needed for combustion in a boiler, explain how fuel is delivered to the burners, and describe the parts and operation of various types of burners. They should also be able to describe the air and gas flow path through a boiler and describe methods used to remove particulates and harmful gases from combustion gases. In addition, participants should be able to explain when and why vents, drains, blowdown valves, and soot blowers are used.
