Combustion Tune-Up @ PPA Training Center
Sep 29 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

This course will begin by exploring combustion and combustion testing, why to look for different elements in the flue and what do they tell us? How do we adjust a burner for peak efficiency and operation. We will discuss the operation of the different components on the Riello, Carlin and Beckett burners and how to troubleshoot these components.

This course is designed for new technicians and a review for the veterans on your staff, with a strong emphasis on operation and troubleshooting.

Our Instructor: Tim has a longstanding history of nearly 30 years in the industry.
