On today's episode of Steam Culture, Brent discusses the origin of the words "steam" and "boiler." The word "steam" originated from a German word, which has links to a Dutch word "stoom." We use these words so much here at WARE, but we really wanted to dig in and find out the true origin of the word "steam." We don't want to give away all the details, so watch the video below to learn more.
Do you know the practical steps to take to get the most out of your current boiler? Do you know how to optimize your boiler’s efficiencies? Can you spot problem areas on your boiler before they harm your system? The answers to these questions are uncovered at our three-day instructional course, Boiler University.
We have heard it many times, “routine maintenance on your boiler is critically important.” If it is so important, why is it one of the biggest contributors to why boilers fail? It is not overly complex, however, it requires a commitment to examine and log important factors about your boiler. Something you can do daily to help maintain a healthy operation is performing boiler blowdown.
Any engineer you come into contact with knows the best way to gain confidence and skill in their industry is through experience. Textbooks and classroom time will only take you so far until real world experience comes into play. Boiler University from WARE is a great way to gain that experience in a controlled environment. Using pictures, video and real-world experience, everyone from newbies to veterans can benefit from these classes.
Today brings yet another fun episode of Steam Culture. In this video, Brent brings us the science behind the steam kettle whistle. He goes into detail with visuals and a great illustration on how this actually happens.

At WARE, we know a little bit about history, and we know how important our work is for our customers. Steam has played a crucial role in our business and history. In fact, without it, WARE wouldn't exist!
On today's Boiling Point, Justin Humes and Ritchie Ware discuss how to cut gauge glass for a boiler. Justin demonstrates two different ways to cut gauge glass.
