At the end of this course you'll have an understanding of:

  1. The different categories of boilers
  2. Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) technology, boiler control system architecture, and burner/fuel management systems
  3. Various operational and safety control in wide use including:
    • Level detection devices, conductivity, capacitance probes, DP cells and mechanical devices
    • Level-control strategies including one, two and three element control
    • Discrete (On-Off) vs modulating control – code requirements
    • Level protection devices – code requirements
    • Condensate and feedwater systems controls
    • Burner and solid-fuels systems management
    • Boiler blowdown management and control.

This course contains a functioning, interactive burner management system (BMS) simulator typical of those found on gas/oil-fired boilers. It provides a detailed step-by-step overview of the burner logic and flame failure protection that are a mandatory requirement in modern boiler operation. Realistic sound effects give you an immersive experience and the simulator provides an insight into a key aspect of boiler operation that is often poorly understood.
