1 The History of Steam

(PDF) If you look up steam on the internet, you get a host of links – and most of these show old steam locomotives!! But steam is a lot more than the old world engines of the industrial revolution. Steam today is an integral and essential part of modern technology. You cannot even begin to imagine the uses of steam in our modern world. Read the History of Steam to find out more....

2 English

(PDF) Just like English, there is the language of steam which needs to be learnt before we dive into the basics of understanding steam.

3 Physics

(PDF) Physics dwells on the fundamental constituents of the universe, the forces they exert on one another, and the results produced by these forces. Here, we understand water molecules, what happens when they are heated, pressurized and turned into steam.

4 Maths

(PDF) Here we will cover – the calculation of steam consumption requirements, sizing steam and condensate lines and lots of tables ...

5 Economics

(PDF) The study of Economics with respect to steam will cover the direct and indirect cost of steam and savings accrued from Condensate and Flash recovery.

6 Boilogy

(PDF) At school biology was taught to us as the science of life. At ARI Steamline, 'BOIL'ogy is the science of boilers!! Here we will study everything from Boiler evolution to boiler efficiency calculations.

7 Geography of a process plant

(PDF) Geography is the science or the study of earth and its life; a description of land, sea, air and the distribution of plant and animal life including people and cities.
We will study the steam circuit in a typical process plant, describe the various loops within the steam system and study how the different parts of the steam plant relate to each other....

8 Chemistry

(PDF) Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes that take place inside that matter.
Our matter is steam and what happens to it inside the boiler. Wet steam, steam and air, feed water and air, combustion - these are some of the topics studied here.

9 Quick Reference

(PDF) Formulas to help us calculate Steam savings, Heat Balance, Line Sizing, etc.
