With a firing range of 15,000 to 200,000 MBH, Model FDR(X) combines a windbox, air register, ignition assembly, fuel train, flame-safety control, combustion control, flue-gas recirculation system and forced-draft blower into a packaged unit.
Rockford Systems LLC expanded its industrial safety solution portfolio into the fuel and thermal safety fields by launching a Combustion Safety division. The newly formed division will provide turnkey solutions for organizations that use thermal processes in their operations.
A typical control approach for an industrial fired heater uses global measurements to keep the system efficient and within safe operating limits. Differences in combustion stoichiometry between individual burners, however, can cause global measurements to produce an incomplete picture of the combustion taking place within the heater.
It’s a point of pride that I have every issue of Process Heating ever published cataloged in a small library in my home office. Admittedly, it’s not as tidy as you might find at your local library. I tend to stack issues that I “check out” on the floor in front of the library until it’s time to clean my office. And, while my lazy filing means a career as a bibliophilic cataloger is doubtful, it also provides opportunities for rediscovery.
Combustion and industrial safety, infrared heating and induction heating: All are focuses of a concurrent seminar program presented by the Industrial Heating Equipment Association. The events will be held in Cleveland on September 24-26 and will include IHEA’s fall business conference. The technical seminar series will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday followed by the business meeting on Thursday, all at the Intercontinental Cleveland.
Multi-gas detector can simultaneously detect up to seven gases including, flammable gases, vapors and oxygen. It is suited for use in chemical, oil and gas, mining, pharmaceutical and water treatment applications.
In an interview with Editor Linda Becker, Matthew Konkle with Dürr Megtec explains the types of technologies used for emissions control in the process industries and offers advice for proactive and reactive maintenance of these systems.
The three largest contributors to the formation of NOX are industrial sources, natural sources and agricultural sources. Abatement and control technology for NOX includes a variety of solutions. Among them are oxidizers, low NOX burners and selective and non-selective catalytic reduction units.
Registration is open for IHEA’s “Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating” online course, which begins on April 15. The program is suited for industrial process heating equipment operators and users of all types of industrial heating equipment. Students learn about safe, efficient operation of industrial heating equipment; how to reduce energy consumption; and ways to help improve a company’s bottom-line.
The Industrial Heating Equipment Association will celebrate its 90th anniversary at the 2019 Annual Meeting April 29-May 1 at Lido Beach Resort in Sarasota, Fla. IHEA members will enjoy the camaraderie created by the ever-popular social events and presentations. The annual meeting provides opportunities for attendees to get involved with important industry-related developments while exploring new business contacts and growing relationships.
