Spirax Sarco Inc . celebrated the grand opening of its fifth U.S. steam technology training center in March. Located at the company's Midwest regional facility in Lisle, IL, the center hosted an open house for customers, distributors, and other dignitaries March 27-29, 2006. The training centers support education in all areas of steam energy with the belief that knowledge and understanding are the keys to energy conservation and resource utilization.

The center is equipped with classroom space and live steam labs that include see-through components such as steam traps and pressure-powered condensate pumps operating under various conditions. It demonstrates system-induced stall, steam-trap testing procedures, heat exchangers, boiler controls, temperature control systems, pressure reducing stations, instrumentation and controls, metering solutions, and compressed air systems.

Courses focus on operational needs connected with energy management, HVAC, operations, piping and process design, project engineering, process engineering, and maintenance. Programs are designed for steam users involved in plant design, operation, and maintenance. Customized training to meet specific needs is available.
