Boiler - (2 of 4) Component Failure Causes & Corrective Repair
This Boiler Component Failure course is designed to benefit personnel responsible for inspecting, operating and maintaining the boiler and its auxiliaries. Emphasis is on the details of inspection and preventative measures to improve component reliability.
The lessons focus on the following systems and equipment:
This course progressively addresses the subject of boiler inspections starting with the fundamentals of inspecting thick- wall (headers/drums), thin-wall (tubes) pressure parts as well as sub-components closely associated with reliable operation.
Topics address the stresses from the standpoints of the fireside, waterside, and structural supports over a range of thermal conditions. Each topic includes activities that must take place before, during and after the boiler outage. Predictive maintenance (inspection and analysis) will be the primary focus, but critical recommendations will address preventative and corrective maintenance.
Information covered can be applied to coal, oil, gas, and waste-fired boilers – industrial or utility.
Maximum number of students: 18
