Flow Paths and Components of the Boiler Water and Steam Systems

Learning objectives

  • Describe the flow path of the boiler water from the economizer to the boiler shroud and drum
  • Explain the relationship of drum water and steam levels
  • Describe the steam cycle through the primary superheater to the economizer
  • Explain the purpose of the major components along the steam cycle
  • Identify critical lines, valves, vents, drains, and controls along the main steam line
  • Explain the relationship of cooling water to the condenser during peak load demands

Course overview

The Flow Paths & Components of the Boiler Water and System Systems training course explains and describes the flow paths and major components in the boiler steam and water systems. It discusses the efficient use of feedwater, boiler flame, the drying and heating of steam, and using flue gases to continually produce and reheat steam to power turbines.

This online training course identifies and explains the major components of boiler water and steam systems including:

  • Flow paths and components of boiler water
  • Steam cycle and components
  • Steam cycle controls

This course is part of the Boiler Water and Steam Systems training series.
