Course Overview: Proven Ways to Save Energy, Time and Money
Gain knowledge and improve your skills as textbook information is converted into practical field applications on a “live steam system” at Campbell-Sevey’s offices in Minnetonka, MN. Through the use of glass piping, glass models, and cut-away parts you will get a live look at how a steam system operates.
This seminar will help you save energy, time and money through proper steam system design and practical guidelines. Participants will learn about steam traps, pressure reducing and relief valve selection, operation and testing.
The Steam Energy Conservation Seminar runs the third Tuesday of each month from 8:00am – 4:30pm and is limited to 10 people so register now!
Course Topics Include:
Lasting Benefits: Practical Steam Trap Tips and Training
Who Should Attend:
Personnel responsible for overall steam system operation, design, maintenance and utility efficiency. Including:
