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.
