The global industrial sector has never placed greater demands on manufacturers. Companies in a range of industries must optimize performance and minimize waste while holding the line on emissions, regardless of the regulatory requirements in their state, region or country.
Submerged combustion is a method of direct-contact heating that has been practiced in a range of industries for several decades. This article explains the basic concepts of submerged combustion. It can be applied to process heating of industrial aqueous solutions and slurries as well as to the evaporation of solutions for the purposes of concentration or volume reduction.
Combustion safeguard system provide continuous, automatic protection against the buildup of combustible fuel mixtures due to flame failure or other faults in ovens, boilers, furnaces and other heating equipment.
Two types of flame sensors generally are used on industrial burners: flame rods and ultraviolet scanners. While each can perform the essential role of safeguarding industrial combustion systems, this article will focus on ultraviolet scanners.
Space, time and energy: who wouldn’t want to save all three at their facility? When selecting steam heating equipment for your industrial boiler room, explore boiler options to maximize returns on investments in space, time and energy.
Choosing the right kind of boiler — whether for a new facility or a retrofit - is an important decision. Many plants and facilities rely on steam for applications like heating, cooking, hot water, sterilization and much more.
In multiple-burner installations on industrial ovens and furnaces, pulse-firing techniques can improve temperature uniformity, reduce emissions and cut overall fuel costs. Is it right for your process?
Many industrial manufacturers are learning that pulsing burners — from high fire to low fire — is a quick way to reduce costs, improve safety and meet emission-level targets for industrial furnaces and ovens.
The frequent cycling of a regenerative combustion system introduces nonlinearities and discontinuities that place challenges on a traditional combustion controls system. Several approaches can minimize these effects.
