  • Experts in combustion control - Expert Paper

    Fired heaters are integral to hydrocarbon processing (HP). Specifically designed for the reaction of fuel and air to produce extremely high gas temperatures, heaters transfer this energy to potentially highly flammable process fluids via heat exchangers. They consume large quantities of fuel, produce large quantities of emissions and are a potential safety hazard to personnel and plant. However, ...

  • Maximizing Boiler Performance - Case Study

    Combustion and the Significance of Unburned Fuel Combustion takes place when fuel reacts with oxygen to produce energy in the form of heat. The energy generated when fuel is burned is used in the operation of a variety of equipment, including boilers, furnaces, kilns, and engines. In addition to heat, CO2 (carbon dioxide) and H20 (water) are created as byproducts of the chemical ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...
