Robert P. Jackson, PE
This eight (8) hour course covers the basics of gas combustion, including the specifics relative to fuel gas types and the properties and characteristics of those gas types. The course highlights the conditions necessary to initiate and support combustion and the burner designs most often used for the combustion process. The descriptive information is generally for atmospheric and power burners. These burners are, by far, the most prevalent burners used in domestic and industrial applications. The gas-air ratio necessary for combustion of natural, propane, butane and manufactured gases are covered as well as characteristics such as flame speed, flame temperature, limits of flammability, limits of yellow-tipping, limits of lifting, etc. We also consider proper venting for the products of combustion and, last but not least, a complete chapter on troubleshooting a gas-fired burner system.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
