Waste Heat Reduction and Recovery for Industrial Furnaces
In Waste Heat Reduction and Recovery for Industrial Furnaces, you'll learn ...
- The source of heat losses in an industrial furnace
- Why addressing waste-gas heat losses has the biggest impact on a furnace’s energy efficiency
- The impact of rich and lean combustion on furnace efficiency and toxic by-products in the exhaust stack
- How to increase furnace efficiency through optimal loading and scheduling
Thermal efficiency of furnaces and other process heating equipment, such as ovens, melters, heaters, and kilns is the ratio of useful heat delivered to the load and heat supplied to the heating equipment. For most heating equipment, a large amount of the heat supplied is wasted in the form of exhaust or flue gases. These losses depend on various factors associated with the design and operation of the heating equipment.
In this course you’ll learn waste heat reduction and recovery opportunities for improving furnace efficiency, productivity and emissions performance.
