SAIMechE Webinar - Industrial Boiler Case Studies


CPD Validation number: SAIMechE-1380-06/20
CPD credits: 0.1


The webinar will consist of two boiler case studies, conducted by Bara Industrial Consultants. The first case study will examine boiler draught plant issues.  The presenters will examine a boiler that was not able to operate at full load for more than 5 years. The boiler was constantly running below design efficiency, the temperature after the primary air heater was too high and the induced draught fans were constantly running with high amps. The second case study will examine a boiler explosion, linked to poor ash hopper cleanliness.
