Combustion Basics: Introduces attendees to combustion, involving the fire triangle, and how combustion can change based on different factors (air/fuel ratios; types of fuel).  Basic burner designs, combustion air/pressure control, air movement and flame observation are explained.

Equipment & Fuel Train Basics: Explains the function of the gas train, how the various components operate, and good practices to follow for safe operation. Flame Safeguards are presented as well as how they manage burner-related safety systems, such as safety interlocks. flame detectors, firebox purge and ignition.

Shutoff Valve Maintenance and Testing: The session discusses different shut off valve types, their use in fuel trains, valve maintenance, and annual code requirements for testing, shutoff valve “bubble” testing, and common valve failures.

Lessons Learned Video Series: Numerous catastrophic combustion events make headlines but often fade without understand why and how they occur. This session of short videos highlights lessons learned from these events and how they have created new combustion safety standards and for driving highly successful safety cultures.

Safety Interlock Testing: Discussing the code requirements for safety interlock testing as well as common tests for purge timing, pressure switches, positon switches, flame detectors, and temperature sensors.

Combustion Control and Tuning: Combustion experts walk through the firing rate controls, pilot adjustments, combustion air / fuel adjustments, ratio analysis and flow rate adjustments, and temperature control and PID basics.

NFPA 54 – Gas Piping and Repair: Addressing the requirements of the installation and operation of fuel gas piping systems, equipment, and related accessories. Topics include rules for piping systems materials and components, piping system testing and purging, combustion and ventilation air supply, and venting of gas-fired equipment. This session also describes various hazards and issues that could lead to fires, explosions, and equipment reliability problems as well as creation of additional NFPA standards for commercial & industrial facilities.

Furnace Efficiency Basics: Attendees learn about increasing efficiencies through topics such as furnace available heat, firing on correct air / fuel ration, reducing excess air, preheating combustion air, the cost of infiltrated air, pulse fired systems and various types of heat recovery.

Hazard Recognition: This session describes various hazards and issues that could lead to fires, explosions, and equipment reliability problems in commercial & industrial facilities.
