Boilers Operation & Maintenance

Code : M/9

Why Attend This Training Course?

Boiler operation is complicated, especially for modern boilers that are fully automatic. Safety, efficiency, and constant generation of steam or hot water depend on the smooth operation of the boiler. A maintenance program should be established based on the type of boiler, history, and the age of the boiler to increase efficiency, ensure safety, and prevent unscheduled shutdowns. This course has been designed to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge of boiler operation and maintenance, combustion control and feed water management. Problems in boiler operation methods of efficiency improvement, Best practices for preventive and corrective maintenance based on inspection according to codes & standards will be explained and discussed and problem solving and troubleshooting will be illustrated through several real world case studies. Maintenance and repair of the auxiliary mechanical equipment such as fans and pumps, will be also explained in detail. Overall, this program is designed to help maximize safety, dependability, and efficiency, thus extending boiler life, improving boiler efficiency, saving energy costs for the employer, and establishing a culture of safe work practices among the employees.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?

This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.
