Spirax Sarco Inc. has opened its fifth Steam Technology Training Center at the company's Midwest regional facility in Lisle, Ill. The centers are used to support education in all areas of steam energy, energy conservation and resource utilization.

In addition to classroom space, the Blythewood, S.C., manufacturer equips each of its training centers with live steam labs incorporating see-through components such as steam traps and pressure-powered condensate pumps operating under various conditions. The centers are used to demonstrate how to handle system-induced stall, steam trap testing procedures, heat exchangers, boiler controls, temperature control systems, pressure reducing stations, instrumentation and controls, metering solutions and compressed air systems.

Scheduled training courses focus on the operational needs connected with energy management, operations, piping and process design, project engineering, process engineering and maintenance. Each program is designed specifically for steam users involved in plant design, operation and maintenance.
