Boiler operation consists of many tasks to keep a boiler operating safely and efficiently. These tasks include tracking many data points, such as boiler pressure and temperature, boiler exhaust temperature, feedwater pressure and temperature, and boiler and water column blowdown timing.
The boiler room is probably the most important location in any facility. Without steam or hot water, most processes would not function, people would be cold, electrical grids would blackout, and surgical instruments could not be sterilized.
In 1973, an energy crisis led to the development of ASHRAE Standard 90. This event served as a catalyst for the creation of building design efficiency requirements, which eventually led to the creation of what is now known as the energy code for buildings.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — The 2019 American Boiler Manufacturers Association (ABMA) Annual Meeting afforded met at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, on Jan. 18-21 for its Annual Meeting.
Since 1914, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ (ASME’s) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) has served as a worldwide model for assuring the safety, reliability, and operational efficiency of boilers. In July, ASME will release the 2019 version of its BPVC code, updating each of the “living document’s” 12 sections.
Industrial plants need steam for heating and other processes. Boilers are commonly used to provide this steam, and you may be called on to operate the boilers in your plant. The first step toward the safe and productive operation of boilers is a good working knowledge of boiler fundamentals.
