Steam System Basics and Energy Efficiency

COURSE NO: D06-004
Steam System Basics and Energy Efficiency
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the basics of steam systems, and provides a comprehensive technical overview of energy efficiency measures in steam generation, distribution, and use.


Steam is in heavy demand in industries requiring heating processes, and typically, it is an energy-intensive process to generate it. Optimizing the steam distribution system focuses on many different areas, with the boiler plant being just a part of the whole process.


Every part of the steam system, including the steam distribution and the end-use process, should perform at the highest efficiency to keep the operating costs to a minimum. The savings potential is enormous not only from a fiscal standpoint, but also from an environmental standpoint.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to process engineers, energy managers, procurement and maintenance staff, operators, and all industry professionals involved in the design and operation of steam systems.
