Instruments and Devices for Boiler Control Systems

The Instruments and Devices for Boiler Control Systems online PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses. This course provides an introduction to instruments and devices employed in boiler control systems.  Both panel instruments and local devices and instruments are discussed.  Requirements are provided for controllers, recorders, totalizers, indicators, status lights, annunciators, selector switches, pushbuttons, and plant control stations.  You will learn about control valves, pressure regulators, solenoid valves, actuators, current-to-pneumatic converters, dampers, pressure relief valves, rupture disks, level instruments, flow instruments, temperature measurements, pressure measurements, electronic transmitters, electrical instrument switches, analyzers, flame detectors and continuous emission monitoring.  You will be introduced to recommended boiler control panel instrumentation as well as local boiler devices.

This course will give mechanical and electrical engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to the types and application of instruments and devices used in control systems for boilers and boiler plants.

This course is intended for mechanical and electrical engineers and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn about devices and instruments used to control boilers and boiler plants.

 Learning Objectives

At the end of the course, you will:

  • Learn about instruments and devices for boiler control and boiler plant control.
  • Learn the characteristics of digital, analog and pneumatic controllers and where they are employed.
