This course covers the operation of typical steam systems and discusses methods of system efficiency improvement.
The course introduces the Steam System Scoping Tool (SSST) and the Steam System Assessment Tool (SSAT). The steam opportunity assessment tools developed by DOE 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.
The course covers three key areas of potential system improvement:
- Steam Generation Efficiency
- Resource Utililization Effectiveness
- Steam Distribution System Loss
The training is designed for plant personnel, such as energy managers, steam system supervisors, engineers, and equipment operators, who have steam system responsibilities in industrial and institutional plants.
This course will be held at the Jane S. McKimmon Center, Corner Western Blvd. and Gorman St., Raleigh, NC.
