The combustion and boiler fundamentals course is designed to provide attendees with a detailed analysis of the principles of combustion and efficient boiler operations. The course describes fuels used for combustion and the unique impacts of each type on operations. Boiler designs are addressed, including basic designs and the development of the latest technologies. Based on the current concerns associated with regulated emissions, the course analyzes environmental concerns and environmental control equipment in the combustion process, including technological advances in CO2 capture. Attendees will complete the course with an understanding of efficient and effective combustion and the boilers used in energy production.
