Boiler Seminars

seminars_img1Each year PBBS holds several two (2) day boiler training seminars at various locations throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. The seminars are designed for our customers who maintain and operate commercial and industrial boilers, and cover a wide variety of boiler related topics for both steam and hot water systems.

seminars_img2Boiler training seminar topics include the fundamentals of thermodynamics, boiler basics, combustion, efficiency, care, maintenance, controls and wiring, steam and hot water systems, steam traps, water chemistry, water treatment, and pre-treatment equipment. Seminars are intended to be informative and provide an overall understanding of the boiler, boiler systems and related equipment to broaden the participant’s knowledge in these areas. By understanding the basics, one may better apply his or her knowledge to recognize and possibly solve a problem rather than just provide a temporary fix for the problem.

For the dates and locations of these seminars, please call 800.236.9620 or e-mail us at pbbs@pbbs.com.
