Combustion Safety & Equipment Overview Course

September 12th – 13th, 2017

Honeywell Combustion Safety is offering a two day Combustion Safety & Equipment Overview Course in Cleveland, Ohio. The workshop is packed full of useful knowledge for you to take back to your facility including hands-on demonstrations .

Our Combustion Safety Workshop will help you create a safer work environment and keep you up-to-date with the latest codes, standards and principles for working with fuel-fired equipment. You will leave this workshop with enhanced knowledge, equipment troubleshooting techniques, and ideas to cut fuel costs at your facility.

Honeywell Combustion Safety experts work with Fortune 1000 clients to help prevent combustion related explosion and fires at their sites. By promoting greater awareness and better implementation of operational procedures, Honeywell Combustion Safety helps to improve reliability, longevity of equipment, lower fuel costs, and save employee lives. This workshop will equip you with the basic knowledge and skills to establish good combustion practice habits for your operations and learn the fundamentals of the safe operation of gas-fired equipment.


Location: Honeywell Combustion Safety
Address: 2100 Apollo Drive, Brook Park, Ohio 44142

The workshop will begin sharply at 8:00 AM and adjourning at 4:30 PM. Lunch will be provided.




Topics Overview:

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.
