This course provides an introduction to the different parts of the ASME CSD-1 Standard.
The major hazards in operating automatically fired boilers are loss of water (low water), furnace explosions, overpressure, and overtemperature.
Principal causes of accidents with automatically fired boilers are lack of proper controls and safety devices, lack of adequate maintenance, improperly trained operators, failure to test controls and safety devices, and complacency on the part of the operator due to long periods of trouble-free operation.
ASME’s CSD-1 Standard was created with the view that improved instrumentation, controls and safety devices, proper operating procedures, and a clearer understanding of installation requirements by the manufacturers, installers, and operators can greatly reduce the chances of personal injury, damage to property, and loss of equipment from accidents.
The information provided is of a general nature and the students are reminded to refer to the CSD-1 Standard for specific details of interest.
