WARE Builds New State-Of-The-Art Boiler Training Facility in Louisville
LOUISVILLE, KY WARE, Inc. has finished construction on its new boiler training facility in Louisville, Kentucky. The 12,000-square-foot facility features an equipment lab, which will allow WARE to provide hands-on training with four fully-operational boilers, as well as an iPad-controlled 65-seat lecture hall, an 80-seat cafeteria, and an iPad-controlled 32-seat classroom.
The facility is a physical representation of WARE's mission to provide all services and products related to steam production and use, including rental, sales, services, repairs, and hands-on training.
"I'm excited about the ability to train people with the hands-on equipment and actually give them a better feel for how to safely operate the equipment," said Jacob Barnett, Training Center Manager.
The equipment lab features four fully-operational boilers, one deaerator tank, and a water softener system. The boilers in the lab are outfitted with transparent glass steam lines, enabling students to actually see condensate flowing through the boilers' steam traps.
WARE Boiler University instructors are not just Professional Educators - they are highly seasoned veterans who have experienced many years working in the boiler industry. Construction of the new facility allowed WARE to expand its course offering from Boiler University, its flagship training program. WARE can now take training out of the classroom and into the boiler room. The hands-on training opportunity does more than provide a better understanding of equipmentit increases safety.
"That's what makes Boiler University successful. Our whole purpose is keeping people safe," said Barnett.
Classes in the new facility are scheduled to begin in January, 2018. Classes are not just for boiler operators, but anyone interested in better understanding boiler room operations.
