Seminars and Training
STPA has developed and presented seminars on steam/water cycle chemistry, makeup water treatment and boiler tube failures. Also, STPA has presented training sessions on steam/water cycle and makeup water treatment equipment and has trained operators to calibrate, maintain and troubleshoot the on-line instrumentation, laboratory analytical procedures, and analyzers. These seminars and training sessions are presented onsite at the client’s facilities at combined cycle power plants, power plants with conventional boilers and at a pulp and paper mill. This enables greater involvement of facility personnel in the seminar or training and allows more focused discussions on areas of interest and concern to the client. Mr. Bartholomew also has presented a general course on Recovery Boiler Water Treatment for over ten years for TAPPI.
