Training videos, in partnership with Ware Inc. USA, will be regularly updated.
AUTOFLAME SERVO MOTORS AND PARALLEL POSITIONING
Follow this discussion about Autoflame Servos and how parallel positioning can help in the boiler room. Single Point positioning using linkage and a mod motor has been the standard in all boiler rooms but it suffers from hysteresis over time as well as not being highly efficient with each point it controls. With parallel positioning, each point can move independently and precisely adding efficiency in combustion.
GETTING THE RIGHT GAS PRESSURE TO THE BURNER FOR COMBUSTION
Keith Knowles from Limpsfield talks about making sure you account for all pressure drops when setting up a gas fired burner. Limpsfield burners are high efficency boiler burners that focus on getting 3% throughout the firing range reducing emissions and saving you money.

READING GAS PRESSURE GAUGES ON GAS TRAIN
Jude shows the differences in gauges on the gas train. The change in units is required to have a finer level of measurements.
You can learn this and more at one of Combustion Technology’s training programs we offer.

MONITORING THE BOILER ROOM WATER PRESSURE
Discussion on the importance of monitoring the incoming water pressure into the boiler room.
MAINTAINING CONDUCTIVITY CONTROLS AND SENSORS
Demonstration on how to maintain your conductivity controls on the boiler.
WHAT IS A STEAM WARM UP VALVE IN A STEAM SYSTEM?
Find out about a unique setup known as a steam warm-up valve. This setup allows for smoother start of steam flow into a cold part of the steam system reducing water hammer and other problems.

KEEPING SAFE WHEN WORKING WITH THE BOILER'S BACK DOOR
A discussion about the potential dangers when working around a steam boiler’s back door and how to protect yourself. These incredibly heavy steel doors are a staple to the industry yet the safety systems around them have been lacking.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEAERATOR AND A CONDENSATE TANK - BOILING POINT
Follow this discussion about a deaerator system and condensate system. Today, Ritchie talks with Steven about the differences between a Deaerator System and a condensate system. Both of these systems are able to preheat your feed water system and remove the oxygen from the water. Water can be very corrosive to the metal in a steam system, so removing as much oxygen as possible is a priority. Even though each system is similar, they both go about it a little differently. Watch the video for the full explanation of each system.

WHAT IS PUMP CAVITATION IN BOILER FEED WATER?
Curious why your feed water pump sounds like rocks are in it? It’s most likely cavitation! Today, Jude goes over what pump cavitation is and how it effects our boiler feed water system.
