Course Description


Boiler - (2 of 4) Component Failure Causes & Corrective Repair

Course Description

This course is designed to aid personnel assigned the task of maintaining optimum NOx/CO emissions from a coal fired steam generator.   The emphasis will be on combustion system optimization of a tangential firing system and include the following systems and equipment:

Fuel Firing Equipment / Tangential Firing Systems

Control of Primary and Secondary Air

Optimization of NOx/CO Emissions from the Firing System

GE RSFC™ Wall Fired Burner


2 Days

Target Audience



Instrumentation & Controls


Instruction is given in English; therefore, a reasonable ability to read and understand spoken English is required

Although not required, attendance in the Boiler Design and Testing Fundamentals course is recommended.

Class Size

Maximum number of students:  18

Learning Objectives
