Boiler explosions have resulted in loss of major facilities as well as loss of life. With emphasis in industry on process safety, the design of Burner Management Systems (BMSs) is now more important than ever. This seminar provides a quick overview of the requirements for single and multiple boiler burners using the 85 Code.
You will be able to:
Define resources for defining design criteria
Evaluate considerations for BMS design
Identify the primary causes of furnace explosions
Explain primary shutdowns as defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 85 Code
Discuss pre-firing purge requirements for both single- and multiple-burner boilers
Discuss alarms, interlocks, and emergency shutdown systems
Discuss the format of individual safety standards and how to use them appropriately
Discuss the NFPA 85 Boiler and Combustion Systems Hazards Code, other safety-related standards, and how they apply to BMS
You will cover:
Current NFPA 85 Boiler and Combustion Systems Code: Format | Use | Cross-Referencing Information | Application to Different Types of Boilers
ANSI/ISA84.01-2004 standard: Application to Boilers
BMS design: Considerations | Requirements for Independence | Requirements for Logical Solver
Single- and Multiple-Burner Boilers: Permissives | Shut downs | Alarms | Purge Requirements | Requirements Comparison
Definitions: Safety Instrumented System (SIS) and Safety Integrity Level (SIL) as Applied to Boilers
