Advanced Process Burners (PB108)

Designed For:

Engineers, operators, maintenance, safety and training personnel from hydrocarbon and chemical processing plants around the world.

Course Overview:

Designed to follow the Process Burner Fundamentals (PB107) course. Participants will learn the basics of some of the latest diagnostic techniques for assessing burner and heater performance; achieve a good understanding of what causes burner flames to interact and the effect of having burners placed too close to each other and/or too close to the furnace walls/tubes; understand what is involved in performing a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis, and the difficulties and benefits of conducting such an analysis; understand how CFD can be used to solve advanced burner-burner/burner-furnace interactions; and learn the basics of heater design.

The important factors that impact pollution emissions (especially NOx and noise) are discussed, including the techniques for minimizing them. Alternate fuels and oil firing are discussed. Participants will learn the key parameters in burner testing in a safe and environmentally acceptable manner, and how to identify problems with firing waste fuels and methods for firing waste fuels. Some live demonstrations will be used to illustrate concepts covered in the course.
