We provide 24 hour and 40 hour Combustion Safety Training and TSSA approved IMT Training (Industrial Maintenance Technician). Hands-On training on your plants equipment, provide real life experience working with this vital equipment.

These Training programs will provide students with a better understanding of how their in-plant equipment operates. We discuss the operation and sequencing of burners and equipment and leaves students with a keen understanding of the codes and their responsibility to work within these stringent code requirements.

We help with understanding how plant equipment functions within the building envelope, explaining the relationship between exhausts and make-up air. We also explore potential hazards in the workplace, along with providing recommendations to improve on current conditions.

Our Combustion Safety Workshop

Salazar Industrial Training is pleased to bring to the Detroit Area, a Combustion Safety Workshop.

This Workshop will help you better understand the Basics of Combustion Theory, the principles and standards of working with Natural Gas or Propane fuel-fired equipment. It will also keep you up-to-date with the codes and standards for fuel burning equipment.

You will leave this workshop with enriched knowledge in the following topics.
Topics that will be covered include; Fuel Train Basics, Combustion Basics, Gas piping, Troubleshooting techniques, Safety procedures, Purging, Flame Safeguard Control basics

    1. Fundamentals of Combustion – basic understanding of combustion and emissions including what to expect if burners are or are not set up correctly
    2. Basics Of Combustion Safety – Burners and Gas Valve Trains – including potential failure modes
    3. Fundamentals of Controls – Purge requirements, Flame detectors, Flame Safeguard Controls.
    4. Preventive Maintenance – Burners, Valves, Regulators, etc. including what can be rebuilt in the field and what must be factory
