E – 1864 Steam System Basics and Energy Efficiency

Intended Audience: HVAC & Mechanical Engineers.



Steam is in heavy demand in industries requiring heating processes, and it is typically an energy-intensive process to generate it. Optimizing the steam distribution system can focus on many different areas and the boiler plant is just a step in the process but not the whole process. Every part of the steam system including steam distribution and the end-use process should perform at the highest efficiency to keep the operating costs to the minimum. The savings potential is enormous: not only from a fiscal standpoint but also from an environmental standpoint.

This course will review the basics of steam systems and provides a comprehensive technical overview of energy efficiency measures in steam generation, distribution, and use. The course has been developed to benefit decision-makers, process engineers, energy managers, procurement staff, operators, maintenance staff, and all the industry professionals involved in the design and operation of steam systems. It is not intended to be a thorough technical guide. References for more detailed technical information is provided.

Learning Objectives:

At the successful conclusion of this course, you will learn the following knowledge and skills:

  • Why steam use is efficient heating media
  • Key components of industrial steam generation, distribution, and use
  • Understand principles of perfect combustion, excess air, and the air-fuel ratio.
  • Identification of typical energy losses of boiler/ steam system in your facilities
  • Low-cost practical strategies to improve the energy efficiency of boiler/steam system
  • Measures to reduce stack losses
  • Measures to reduce blowdown losses
  • Measures to improve the distribution side of the steam system
  • Measures to improve steam end-use efficiency
