Are you involved in, or responsible for, maintaining this equipment at your plant?  If yes, this course may be for you, or your direct reports.  The course is instructed by an instructional staff that have about 30-years (each) of hands-on experience as well as significant experience in successfully presenting this information.

  • Plant maintenance technicians have to deal with a vast variety of equipment. To properly maintain compressors, fans, pumps, and other balance of plant equipment, the maintenance technician needs to better understand the operation of this equipment. Gain this knowledge in this course offering.
  • Heat exchangers are an important part of all systems. In a steam plant today there are a number of large heat exchangers and many different types. In this seminar the individual will learn the operation, classification, and troubleshooting of various heat exchangers.
  • Compressed air systems are a vital part of plant operation. Station air, control air, and compressed air for tools are a needed on a daily basis. This seminar will help the maintenance technician to better understand the compressors and the entire air system.
  • Pumps are utilized in every system in a plant. To better understand troubleshooting of a pump the mechanic needs to know the theory of pump operation. This seminar will familiarize the maintenance technician pump theory, construction, and operation.
  • Valve identification and maintenance Is very important in maintaining plant operations.
  • Savings can be found in understanding the proper installation of packing and gasket materials.
