Introduction to Steam Boiler Burner Management Systems

Tuesday and Wednesday

This course provides a thorough overview of a Steam Boiler Burner Management System unit operation and associated process safety related hazards associated based upon a natural gas fired steam boiler and the various modes of operation (e.g., pre-fire, purge, light off, normal operation and post purge).  This course includes Steam Boiler specifics on:

 

  • Process Hazards Analysis

  • Layer of Protection Analysis

  • Safety Requirements Specification

  • Safety Integrity Level Verification Calculations

  • Cause & Effect Diagrams

  • Proof Test Plans

  • Operations and Maintenance insight in Steam Boiler safety performance

    • Leading Indicators

    • Bypass Research

    • MoC Research

    • Demand Research

    • Test Interval Extension / Deferral

 

The training course will use a combination of PowerPoint slides and live demo of Steam Boiler Functional Safety deliverable generation using aeShield software.  On day two students will leverage the Steam Boiler Equipment Under Control template in aeShield to develop their own Functional Safety compliance documentation using our patented and award winning aeShield software.

Advanced Topics Burner Management Systems 

Thursday

Prerequisite

Completion of Steam Boilers – Introduction to Safety Instrumented Burner Management System course

 

Topics Covered

 

This course provides details how a Burner Management System design can be shown to meet design equivalency requirements as specified in NPFA 85, 86 or 87 and CSA B149.3.  for instance, NFPA 85 prescriptively requires a double block and bleed valve arrangement on all individual burners in a gas fired multiple burner boiler application.  How would one go about possible justifying an alternate valving arrangement?  Answering this type of question is the purpose of this course.  This course includes specifics on:

 

  • Prescriptive versus Performance based Codes / Standards

  • Authority Having Jurisdiction

  • Process Hazards Analysis / Layer of Protection Analysis

    • Tolerable Risk Criteria / Calibration

  • Design Equivalency Requirements

    • Sensors

    • Valves

    • Logic Solvers

  • Safety Integrity Level Verification Calculations – Design Equivalency Options

  • Justification of Design Equivalency to Authority Having Jurisdiction

 

The training course will use a combination of PowerPoint slides and live demo of Steam Boiler Burner Management System designs in aeShield software to compare and contrast various designs and show how design alternatives can be evaluated and potentially justified to the Authority Having Jurisdiction.  .
