Steam system training courses pledge to provide attendees with the knowledge needed to make changes to a steam system - without capital investments - to reduce energy and emissions while increasing the steam system reliability.

Offered by Swagelok Energy Advisors, Solon, Ohio, the Steam System Level I course provides a review of the total steam system, from boilers to condensate recovery. It is targeted at individuals looking to achieve more knowledge of steam systems. Level II training expands and augments the lessons learned in Level I training.

According to Swagelok Energy Advisors, all components in a steam system should last six years. The training programs intend to help attendees accomplish this objective by understanding what causes failures and what factors provide long, reliable service life.

Two sessions are planned for May. The Level I course will be held May 4-6 in Atlanta, and the Level II course will be held May 18-20 in Toronto.
