Boiler Types and Applications
This course is relevant to engineers who design steam systems, as well as any engineer interested in learning more about the types of boilers available and their applications. No prerequisite course is required to take this introductory course on boilers. - 2 PDH

Steam System Basics
Steam has many performance advantages that make it an attractive means of delivering energy including low toxicity, ease of transportability, high efficiency, high heat capacity and low cost relative to other alternatives. This course is relevant to engineers with little knowledge of steam systems, who are interested in expanding their knowledge base, as well as steam system users looking for a refresher course on steam system basics. - 3 PDH

Boiler Fuel and Emissions
Fuel type and emissions control are two very important considerations in the design of a boiler. The type of fuel selected will not only impact emissions, but will also greatly influence the design of the boiler and the operating costs. This course covers key properties and design considerations for each of the major boiler fuels available, including coal, natural gas, oil, wood and municipal-type solid waste. - 3 PDH

Steam Efficiency Improvements - Distribution & End Users
This course is relevant to engineers who design or maintain steam systems, as well as engineers interested in learning more about improving the efficiency of a steam system. The student should have an understanding of the basic fundamentals of steam systems before taking this course. - 2 PDH


Basics of Steam System Design

This section is intended for people involved in the design, operation and/or maintenance of steam systems. It covers some basic terminology, principles, steam generation in general, and the design of steam distribution and condensate collection piping. Also covered are the sizing, specifying and installation of steam traps.



Basics of Heat Transfer

In the simplest of terms, the discipline of heat transfer is concerned with only two things: temperature, and the flow of heat. Temperature represents the amount of thermal energy available, whereas heat flow represents the movement of thermal energy from place to place.
