Description

Event Details

This course covers the operation of typical steam systems and discusses methods of system efficiency improvement. This end-user focused class demonstrates how to compute your current cost of steam, how to measure and create a baseline of system performance, and how to determine the impact of different boiler control systems. Learn basic approaches for cutting costs; identify steps for proper system operation, maintenance, and point-of-use accountability.

The course covers three key areas of potential system improvement:

  • Steam Generation Efficiency
  • Resource Utililization Effectiveness
  • Steam Distribution System Losses

The course introduces the Steam System Scoping Tool (SSST) and the Steam System Assessment Tool (SSAT). The steam opportunity assessment tools developed by DOE's uses the Steam System Survey Guide as a technical reference. The training also introduces the 3E Plus insulation appraisal software and a course example is presented that uses this software.
