Steam boiler manufacturer Fulton is offering two one-day City and Guilds-certified training courses designed to offer a mix of theoretical and practical operational assignments.

The Operator Routines and Maintenance course, which is targeted at boiler operators, covers basic day-to-day operation and monitoring and gives employees the knowledge required to monitor a boiler and ensure it is running efficiently and safely.

The course also includes training in operational procedures and daily blowdowns and explains how to check water levels and alarms, for example. In addition, it assesses the importance of correctly treated feedwater and discusses what boiler inspectors look for during routine insurance inspections.

The other course, Knowledge of Steam Systems, is aimed at more experienced operators such as technicians and engineers. It focuses on both the boiler system in depth and auxiliary equipment including the steam and condensate loop.

Course benefits

  • According to Jeff Byrne, Fulton’s customer services manager, the courses support both the BG01 (Safed) and INDG-436 (HSE) guidelines with regard to operation and training.
  • The training courses are designed to help technicians and engineers improve their knowledge and thus their confidence.
  • They are also claimed to be useful for employers, as operators handle more of their own maintenance and repair and avoid call-outs to boiler breakdowns; the one-day courses could therefore cut costs.
  • As every boiler facility is different, Fulton can run the courses at customers’ own facilities; this way, technicians and engineers learn on the equipment they will be monitoring day to day.

The Fulton name has been synonymous with steam since the company first introduced the vertical tubeless steam boiler in 1949 and Fulton was established in Bristol in 1966. Fulton is still one of the world’s leading manufacturers, producing an unrivalled range of multi-fuel steam boilers. But increasingly these are ordered by customers as part of bespoke turnkey systems designed to meet exacting specifications.

Today Fulton Ltd is an important design and manufacturing base in Fulton’s global network that also includes production facilities in the US and China. The company’s UK facility makes it possible to manufacture products more efficiently and to assemble completed units for whenever and wherever they are needed throughout the UK and in export markets.

Once just a steam boiler manufacturer, Fulton now specialises in ready-to-ship skid-mounted and fully packaged boiler plant rooms to meet the current demand for off-site fabrication. The company puts great emphasis on providing sales and application advice and a full commissioning and after-sales service to a growing customer base in hospital and healthcare facilities, food and beverage processing, laundries and other applications.

Design and manufacturing resources are shared and co-ordinated around the world, but no matter where your product originates it will always be produced to the highest quality in a facility that is wholly owned and managed by the Fulton Group, which remains a privately owned family business.

Fulton’s heating and hot-water systems can be delivered as fully prefabricated plant rooms or complete skid-mounted units, built to fit a prepared location and to connect direct to your services.

Using the latest CAD equipment, its design team can accommodate the most sophisticated engineering specifications in surprisingly compact spaces, locating components in the best possible position to suit the installation.

In every sense, today’s Fulton boiler systems are solutions that fit the requirements of the modern age of steam.
