Engineers benefit from burner training in Italy

EOGB has reported another successful summer of burner training in Italy.

The commercial burner training course, which is held at the Baltur research and development facility in Bologna, covers burners with outputs from 50kW to 2,000kW as well as commissioning, gas valve set up, modulating controls, burner matching, and fault finding. This year the course was run in July and September to meet high demand.

Unlike other courses currently available, training at Baltur allows engineers to get first-hand practical experience on large commercial burners, giving them essential experience and advanced technical knowledge.

Tim Evans, Managing Director of Evans Maintenance, who sent engineers on the course, said: “We are always looking to further our knowledge in the latest burner technologies and by training with EOGB at Baltur in Italy we benefitted from seeing the latest products and getting a hands-on approach to the training. We also benefit from a real world environment to commission and set up the burners under varied conditions and scenarios. Everyone really enjoyed the course and returned with additional technical knowledge so we can better serve our clients.”

Martin Cooke, Technical Director at EOGB, said: “Well done to all the engineers who attended the commercial burner courses this year – we were really impressed by the amount of enthusiasm and hard work. I encourage anyone who would like to attend next year to add their name to our list now as the courses are always over-subscribed and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.”

The next Italy training trip will be in July 2017. For more details, call 01480 477066 or email

EOGB also runs a number of courses at its purpose-built facility in St Neots in Cambridgeshire, including OFTEC Oil Training, Domestic ACS Gas and Hot Water Safety Systems.
