In this training, the trainee gets the chance to practice furnace warm up procedure. From ignition of pilots and main burners, introduction of process steam, start up of the BFW/ high pressure steam system and finally to the change over of the furnace to the operating plant. The trainee walks through all the required steps to safely get the furnace warm and ready for the feed.
Why take this course?
Operating the furnace is not an easy task and requires many years of experience. Any mistake throughout the warmup procedure could cause severe and costly consequences. By practicing in this virtual environment, the trainee gets the chance to experience all consequences and learn from them so that they are not repeated in the real plant.
