Forced Draft Boiler Flue Gas Venting: Solutions to Typical Problems

1-27-16 webinar image

This webinar will focus on proper engineering practices and what essentials you need to know to correctly apply an efficient boiler exhaust system. A basic explanation of the various stack categories for pressurized non-condensing exhaust systems (Category III) will be covered. Common issues encountered during specifying, engineering, material selection and install will be addressed along with how to solve these problems to avoid significant losses of energy and uptime, and ensure safety.

The content is geared to engineers, design-build contractors, energy managers, plant managers, supervisors and boiler operators. Attendees will learn about the areas where stacks and breechings fail and how these issues can be mitigated or eliminated to minimize energy losses, mechanical failures, safety issues and lost production time.
