Industrial Steam Systems: Opportunities for Energy and Productivity Savings
In Industrial Steam Systems: Opportunities for Energy and Productivity Savings , you'll learn ...
- Methods to estimate the fuel costs and operating characteristics of a steam system and to identify improvements in energy efficiency that translate to operational cost savings
- How to evaluate the fuel-to-steam conversion efficiency of a boiler
- How to select the most appropriate fuel, maintain the proper steam balance throughout the system, and integrate process energy
- Methods to evaluate steam system losses, including steam leaks, condensate losses, flash steam losses and heat loss through insulation
Engineers are often unaware of the opportunities available for energy and productivity savings in their steam systems, or they are unsure of the calculation procedures required to determine the savings opportunities. Steam system surveys can save energy and provide significant economic benefits to the facility owner.
In this course, you’ll learn major areas where steam systems can be improved, along with calculations that you can perform to quantify steam system improvement opportunities. Guidelines are provided for profiling individual steam systems with methods to estimate the fuel costs and operating characteristics of the facility along with identifying improvements in energy efficiency that translate to operational cost savings.
