Fuel consumers face a double challenge. One is economic - to get the best heating value for every fuel dollar. The other is environmental - to keep emissions low, at least within legislated limits. Fortunately, what benefits the first objective also benefits the second. A boiler installation costing $75,000 can easily consume over $400,000 in fuel every year. Consequently, even with very economical fuel costs, a difference of just a few percentage points in boiler efficiency can translate into substantial savings. Understanding boiler operating costs is the key to maximizing investments year in and year out. This 6 - hour Quick Book provides simple facts and energy efficiency opportunities in the areas of combustion management, makeup & feed water management, condensate return, blow-down system, waste heat recovery and steam distribution & utilization. This book focuses on these aspects and suggests the possible improvements in 3 main areas: 1.Combustion Management 2.Makeup, Feedwater, Condensate & Blowdown Management 3.Steam Management (distribution & use) This course is aimed at mechanical, chemical & process engineers, system design engineers working in power, oil & gas, chemical, metal & mining, manufacturing and engineering industries, energy auditors, operational and maintenance personnel. Learning Objective At the conclusion of this course, the student will be aware of: Direct and indirect method for evaluating boiler efficiencies Establishing list of energy losses in a boiler system Combustion analysis; Excess air control and Air-Fuel mix Heat recovery systems (economizers, preheater, flue gas condensing etc) Waterside and fireside problems Boiler water treatment approaches Importance of condensate recovery Blowdown optimization and waste heat recovery using flash tanks/ heat exchangers Energy efficiency in steam distribution Energy efficiency in steam utilization Automation using burner controls and oxygen trims Boiler audit checkpoints & questionnaire"show more
