Converting existing boiler room equipment may be the best alternative when it is not viable or economical to replace the entire boiler system or associated capital equipment, and many times conversion offers the best return on investment. Retrofitting existing boiler room equipment can help reduce unscheduled downtime, provide enhanced safety improvements and more.
Parallel positioning controls help a burner to optimize its fuel-to-air ratio by using dedicated motorized actuators for the fuel and air valves. These parallel positioning controls directly tie into the electronic firing rate control, enabling more efficient and consistent performance.
The Internet of Things (IoT) helps make companies smarter and more efficient, and the boiler room is no exception. There are several parameters that can be monitored in real-time on a boiler system to provide operational insights. The resulting data can help operators and facility managers make informed decisions to boost efficiency, prevent or reduce downtime, improve safety, and provide peace of mind. Learn the fundamental requirements for IoT in the boiler room and how to enable legacy boiler equipment to be connected.
Dates: SEPTEMBER 29-30, 2020
The overall objective of this course is to make the attendee more knowledgeable about what a boiler is, how it operates, and what ancillary equipment is required to support its operation. Additionally, the program stresses safety and the proper operating practices required to maximize efficient, safe, and reliable service of the equipment.
During this webinar, attendees will learn the benefits of pressurized condensate systems, different application methods and equipment, and how to control and apply it to a new or existing system. Providing savings in fuel costs, increasing plant profitability, and maximizing steam system efficiency
During this webinar, attendees will learn the importance of water conditioning, methods of mechanical and chemical treatment, consequences of improper water chemistry, as well as the benefits and best practices of steam and hydronic system water treatment.
This webinar will explore different methods of designing a combined heat and power system that can be used to offset a plant’s existing utility costs. Using real life examples and case studies, this webinar will dig into the why’s and how’s of cogeneration.
For optimized system efficiency, matching boiler and pump turndown is critical to maintain the delta T and maximize efficiency. In this intermediate webinar, attendees will learn more about boiler combustion basics, burner excess air and the effect on condensing boiler efficiency and how to maintain design delta T to maximize system efficiency.
Research shows that top-performing plants achieve 90% less downtime and about 15% extra uptime by focusing on the basics, particularly preventive maintenance. Modern boiler systems include safety controls, but they are no substitute for routine maintenance. Plant equipment almost always provides some kind of advanced warning before failing, so it is critical to establish and maintain a preventive maintenance program to ensure reliability, longevity and safety.
