Course overview

Industrial boilers need a pure source of water. Two systems supply the water: the condensate system and the feedwater system. The Introduction to the Condensate System training course covers the condensate system. This system provides the initial water supply to an industrial boiler.

This online training explains the purpose and operation of all major components in the condensate system. Topics include understanding the boiler water supply, major condensate system components, and deaerator design. This training also discusses the relationship between the condensate and feedwater systems.

Introduction to Condensate Systems is part of the Condensate and Feedwater Systems series.
