  • Consider the control of fire tube boiler systems. 
Introduction to the following:
  • Basic Water Chemistry in relation to steam production
  • Understanding of chemistry of important parameters in steam boiler control
  • Objectives of boiler water treatment
  • Base-exchange softening of raw water to produce water suitable for boiler make-up
  • Operational problems associated with base-exchange softeners
  • Thermal reduction of oxygen in boiler feed-water
  • Review of the chemistry and requirements of internal treatment programmes for fire tube steam boilers and control of blowdown
  • Methods available for treatment of condensate
  • Boiler water service reports - customer expectations and service provider services/requirements
Delegates only need to have secondary school knowledge of chemistry to attend this course.  Those who have never had this (or have forgotten it) should attend the foundation course (W013) as preparation.
