Technical Courses

Bearing Lubrication and Reliability Maintenance

Who Should Attend
This course will benefit engineers, operators, chemists and maintenance technicians whose jobs require a working knowledge of or have direct responsibility for the operation and maintenance of boilers.

Course Description
This course will provide a comprehensive practical review of boiler operation and maintenance considerations. Fundamentals of boiler design parameters and design codes and standards that are essential for boiler operation and maintenance are discussed with emphasis on typical problems that can be experienced with utility industrial boilers. The impact of good operating procedures and effective maintenance for optimum reliability and efficiency are addressed. Principles of boiler feed water treatment and control will be reviewed, along with key tips for safe boiler start-up and shutdown. The course includes illustrations of various examples of boiler and auxiliaries failures, guidelines for analyzing the cause of the failure and inspection procedures.
