This event has finished

The modern Plant Engineer will most likely be required to manage the generation and distribution of low-pressure saturated steam for industrial use. Typically, the teaching of boiler and steam theory at university does not address the major practical considerations of raising, distributing and using steam.  This presentation will introduce the major factors that should be understood and managed in order to ensure the safe, reliable and efficient management of industrial boilers and steam systems.


About the presenter:
