Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

This Boiler and Steam System Operations training course is designed to provide up to date operation and maintenance strategies of industrial boilers and steam turbines. This training course entails a study of steam and thermal laws applied to industrial processes followed by an illustration of the design, operation and maintenance of steam turbines and plants, and their related aspects. The aim of this PetroKnowledge course is to provide a satisfactory approach to the problems posed by steam turbines and the means to solve them.

Highlights of this Boiler and Steam System Operations training course include:

  • Understanding of proper operation and monitoring techniques as applied to steam turbines
  • Ability to put in place measures to quantify equipment condition
  • Identify and specify new steam turbine plant

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

By the end of this Boiler and Steam System Operations training course, participants will be able to:

  • An understanding of the construction of boilers and steam turbines
  • Familiarity with operational constraints of boilers and steam turbines
  • Insight of best practices of operation and maintenance of those equipment
  • Knowledge of how to optimally maintain these equipment for the benefit of the company
  • Hints and tips for practical application of monitoring technologies so as to achieve the best results

Who is this Training Course for?

This training course is primarily targeting maintenance, inspection and, to some extent, the operation of steam generating equipment in process and power industries. A portion of the course is focusing on the static pressure components of an industrial and power generation systems, while the emphasis is on the critical power generation/steam consumers.

This PetroKnowledge Boiler and Steam System Operations training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but would greatly benefit:

  • External Inspectors
  • Electrical Maintenance Personnel
  • Maintenance Personnel
  • Equipment Designers

How will this Training Course be Presented?

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes formal lectures, case studies and interactive worked examples. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and sharing experiences.

Organisational Impact

This PetroKnowledge training course will greatly affect the organisation achieve careful operation and properly focused inspection and maintenance that will ensure high availability of the steam generation system and increase overall stability of the processes, preventing potentially significant losses and ensuring best return-of-investment of the considered equipment.

This Boiler and Steam System Operations training course will help streamline the:

  • Process of generating steam and electricity for its own use or commercially
  • Operation of the steam and electricity generating equipment
  • Inspection and maintenance of the steam and electricity generating equipment
  • Focus on the turbines and generators
  • Process of the proper maintenance and resource planning

Personal Impact
