This course will describe the best practices that can be applied to engines, turbines, steam generators, pumps, and heat exchangers. Detailed analysis of thermal efficiency of different industrial applications will be presented. Based on different parameters it will be shown how the system can be optimized which can result in an increase of the overall efficiency. The course will also present the effect of piping thermal insulation. Thermal efficiency improvement techniques will be discussed.
This course will enable participants to:
Interpret and review the thermodynamics and heat transfer processes in process equipment in order to apply appropriate thermal efficiency improvement techniques.
Identify and analyze principles of thermal design of process equipment.
Estimate the degree of inefficiency of process equipment and the way to improve its efficiency.
Analyze and interpret problems in everyday operations and find the optimal solution.
Engineers, technicians and operators from chemical, process, power generation industries, including oil refineries, gas production companies, conventional and nuclear power plants.
Project Engineers involved in design, calculation, and optimization of different types of process equipment.
Operational and Technical Service Engineers.
Plant Engineers dealing with heat exchanger, boiler and pump specifications and everyday operation.
After you attend this course you will have:
Improved knowledge of thermal efficiency and the ways on how to improve it.
Better understanding of methods to improve efficiency for different types of process equipment.
Experience with analysis involving waste heat recovery techniques.
Recognition of limitations of improving efficiency.
