Recovery Boiler Program
The AF&PA Recovery Boiler Program was established in 1974 to develop programs and assist companies operating recovery boilers to improve the safety, integrity and reliability of the recovery boiler operations. The Program is under the direction of a Steering Committee to provide a forum for the members to develop information, reference manuals, audit guidelines, checklists and training aids useful in evaluating: Safety Operating Procedures; Specifications and Construction; Maintenance Programs; Organization and Training; and Research and Development Programs.
Membership is open to (AF&PA member and non-AF&PA member) companies operating recovery boilers. Companies designate representatives to serve on the Program’s two subcommittees (Research & Development and Operation & Maintenance). An annual Conference and annual committee meetings are held each February. A copy of the Program’s charter and listing of available publications is shown below.
Operational Safety Seminars
The Committee sponsors two (2) seminars each year in April & May. Two expert monitors conduct these seminars to further the operators’ and supervisors’ knowledge and understanding of the safe operation and maintenance of recovery boilers. The seminars focus on the proper training and handling of upset situations to minimize exposure to personnel; reduce injuries; as well as reduce down time and damage.
