"Gave good knowledge of what NFPA 85 requires for BMS." —Brian Rychener, Electrical Engineer
This course covers the safe start-up, monitoring, and shut-down of multiple burner boiler furnaces. It also discusses causes of furnace explosions and the relationship between burner management systems and boiler control systems. Prior attendance at ISA ES15: Boiler control Systems Engineering Course or an understanding of boilers and boiler control is assumed.
You will be able to:
Identify the primary cause of furnace explosions
Apply NFPA 85 Code
Use design basis documentation and flow sheets
Identify equipment needs for gas, oil, and pulverized coal systems
Explain prefiring purge requirements for both single and multiple burner boilers
Follow the ignition-permissive establishment procedures for single and multiple burner systems
Implement flame failure protection for specific systems
Design alarms, interlocks, and emergency shutdown systems
Describe the function and use of the burner front, operator interfaces, and logic systems
