When working with balance draft boilers, regardless of the basic process control system or fuel being burned, you must control six basic functions: furnace draft, drum level, feed water, fuel, air, and steam temperature. This webinar will teach you what must be controlled and how the control systems operate.

This webinar will give engineers, managers, operators, and technicians in boiler houses and power plants, a basic understanding of boiler operation and control.

You will be able to:

  • Describe the boiler components and their function
  • Discuss furnace draft, drum level, feed water, fuel, air, and steam temperature
  • Describe how the systems interact and how to set up the controls
  • Describe "swell" and "shrink"

You will Cover:

  • Boiler Components 
  • Enclosure symbols
  • Draft (control)
  • Drum Level Control
  • 2 and 3 element Feed Water Control
  • Steam Temperature Control
  • Boiler Swell and Shrink
