Steam System Survey

COURSE NO: M06-006
Steam System Survey
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how to assist operations personnel and facility managers of energy facilities in identifying significant opportunities to improve steam systems.  Guidelines are provided for profiling individual steam systems with methods to estimate the fuel costs and operating characteristics of the facility along with identifying improvements in energy efficiency that translate to operational cost savings.


Often operations personnel and energy managers are unaware of the opportunities available for energy and productivity savings in their steam systems, or they are unsure of the calculation procedures required to determine the savings opportunities. Steam system surveys can save energy and provide significant economical benefits to the building owner.


This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers who design, operate or evaluate steam systems who wish to understand more about energy and productivity savings in the steam systems.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Profiling a steam system
  • Identifying steam properties for the steam system
  • Improving boiler operations
  • Improving resource utilization in the steam system
  • Investigating energy losses in the steam distribution system
