Gas trains have two main components - safety and flow controls - that must be set accurately for your combustion system to function. Human error is the biggest reason for annoying shutdowns or the inability of a burner to start up. Yet many operators find it difficult to optimize setting the fuel-to-air ratio for economical operation, fuel efficiency, system reliability and consistency, and less environmental impact. A lot of things can go wrong.

A no-cost webinar, or online seminar, is planned for May 3 at 2 p.m. ET, that promises to help attendees learn how to set up a burner and solve problems. Combustion industry veteran and expert Dick Bennett of Janus Technology, Rockford, Ill., will tackle topic such as:
  • Understanding gas trains.
  • Setting up the fuel-to-air ratio.
  • Keeping the fuel-air ratio where it should be.
  • Determining flow controls.
  • Finding the strengths and weaknesses of your gas train configuration.
  • Troubleshooting your gas train.
  • Setting up and optimizing your safety controls for safe operation.
  • Avoiding nuisance shutdowns.
  • Stopping interference with system startup.
