This webinar begins with a brief trip down memory lane to marvel at early twentieth-century furnace technologies, commences with a look at the most recent changes made to the 2019 Edition of NFPA’s Ovens & Furnaces Standard, and ends with a crystal-ball look at technologies that may unfold in the decade ahead.

By attending, you will learn about safety systems and good practices for today’s furnace users and see case studies with analyses of furnace failures.

Additional subjects include:

  • How you can participate in the NFPA standard-writing process.
  • The current safety environment for Class B, C and D Furnaces.
  • Challenges and solutions for fire detection and suppression in ovens.
