Last year’s IHEA combustion seminar attendees view products and discuss equipment and services during the reception and tabletop exhibit.

The combustion seminar from the Industrial Heating Equipment Association has been revised to include additional information, updated data and infrared sessions for process heating applications.

The 40th annual seminar is scheduled for October 26 and 27 in Dearborn, Mich., with an accompanying reception and tabletop exhibition on the evening of October 26 for all attendees.

“This [reception] time offers attendees a valuable opportunity to speak with company representatives and learn more about the products and services discussed in their classroom environment throughout the day,” says Tim Lee, combustion seminar chairman.

The sessions will address topics such as air-gas premixing, applications, burners, controls, flame supervision, gas flow measurement, metering and NOX. Although it is called a combustion seminar, the forum also will cover infrared, including two 45-minute training sessions on the basics and applications for infrared.

Headquartered in Taylor Mill, Ky., the trade organization designed the heat processing sessions for people responsible for the operation, design, selection or maintenance of fuel-fired process ovens and furnaces, and those involved with infrared. The seminar provides noncommercial exposure to:
  • Combustion chemistry and efficiency.
  • Types of industrial burners and how they are applied for efficient operation.
  • The supply and control of the fuel and air for process systems, including piping design and valve selection.
  • Flame-safety requirements.
  • Process and ratio controls, including microprocessor-based controls.
  • Furnace pressure controls for operating and efficiency improvements.
  • Preheated combustion air and furnace recuperators.
  • NOX and other emissions – what causes them and how to minimize them.
