From basic combustion science to advanced computer-driven modeling of combustion applications, combustion seminars led by Hauck Manufacturing Co., Lebanon, Pa., offer attendees the information needed to make the most efficient use of combustion equipment. Hauck offers two sessions of the two- day or three-day sessions.

Hauck's industrial combustion seminars will be held March 12-14 and April 16-18 at its Griffith Technical Center, Cleona, Pa., which is located adjacent to the main plant on Hauck’s 15-acre campus. Session topics during the two-day workshop will include:

  • Burner Sizing. Learn how to calculate the total fuel input needed for your furnace and process requirements and relate that to a burner selection. Work on a sample problem with several different design criteria.
  • System Design. Discover the advantages and disadvantages to various air/fuel ratio control methods. Determine optimum furnace zone configurations and burner selection.
  • Piping Design. Learn about basic air and fuel piping practices, control component selection, fluid mechanics, and orifice meters.
  • Blowers and Sound. Using fan laws, perform blower sizing and performance for standard and non-standard conditions. Calculate sound pressures at distances and determine blower sound levels with silencers.
  • Emissions. General discussion of emissions and design decisions that impact emission levels.

Class work will be supplemented by hands-on exercises in Hauck’s laboratory.

Attendees that opt to include Day 3 of the seminar will learn about Hauck's "e-Solutions for Combustion," a software tool to solve combustion design issues. The 4.0x version of e-Solutions will be installed at no charge on each Day 3 attendee’s computer.

The seminar costs $675 for the two-day session and $900 for the three-day session, and the registration fees include continental breakfast and lunch each day as well as a seminar manual. Accommodations are not included.
