Brimstone’s Sulfur Recovery Fundamentals Course presents the basics of sulfur recovery and is designed to expand and broaden the practical working knowledge of your plant operators and engineers. Our goal is to provide your staff with practical information that helps them in their day-to-day efforts to safely and efficiently meet their plant operating goals. We accomplish this by copying the style of our Sulfur Symposia and presenting the course material in a casual, highly interactive manner with lots of Q&A and discussion. Our courses are especially effective in this way because of the extensive, hands-on experience of our excellent instructional staff.
