Introduction to Central Boiler Plants

Introduction to Central Boiler Plants

Central Boiler Plants are constructed primarily to produce an economical energy source for distribution. This energy may be in the form of steam, hot water, compressed air or electricity. A distribution system is necessary to carry this energy to buildings, hospitals, kitchens and laundries where it is used for heating, cooling, process, sterilization, and production of domestic hot water. Condensate or hot water is returned to the central boiler plant where it is reheated in a boiler and returned to the distribution system for recycle. This course provides an overview of central boiler plants, presents operation and maintenance requirements, and reviews system optimization strategies.

Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 3 PDH credits.
