VIDEO SERIES: Useful tips and insights on best practices in boiler operations, presented by WARE Inc., in association with the American Boiler Manufacturers Association.

HPAC Engineering regularly shares the practical insights and handy how-to advice for boiler operation and maintenance best practices, as compiled by the knowledgeable and prolific content creators at WARE, a family-owned, third-generation, commercial and industrial boiler rental and service firm based in Louisville KY.

In this episode, WARE's Jude Wolf discusses the steps needed to determine if your boiler is at rate. Determining rate is an important part of maintaining any boiler. Why? Because over-firing the boiler can cause damage while under-firing can reduce its expected steam output. So, determining rate can confirm that you are using your boiler to its proper specifications to achieve optimal output.
