At the EHS (Environmental, Health & Safety) Seminar, Emerson’s Michael Machuca presented Digital Solutions to Achieve Your Sustainability and Decarbonization Goals.
This quick 51-second video, How to Properly Maintain Your Fuel Train, shows some effective safety shutoff valves for the application. These valves include the ASCO Series 158/159 and 214 safety shutoff valves.
Designing a fuel train system for a boiler, furnace, or oven requires careful consideration of various parameters. Flow is one of the key parameters that should be maximized to ensure optimal performance of the burner and prevent potential shutdowns due to low fuel pressure. However, poor flow in the fuel train can be a common issue, which can be addressed by selecting the right components.
Emerson industrial energy experts Bob Sabin and Scott Pettigrew teamed up to present a novel combustion control methodology to improve boilers, heaters, and furnaces at the 2022 Emerson Exchange conference.
One of the most highly anticipated sessions at the Emerson Exchange conference is the DeltaV Platform product roadmap session. While I can’t share some of the further-out innovations to come, I can share some of the near-term advancements. DeltaV VP of Technology...
Poor flow in a fuel train can limit the performance of the burner and can also put your entire combustion system at risk of shutting down in the event of low fuel pressure. Fortunately, selecting the right fuel train components can overcome these issues without breaking the bank. Here are three strategies to consider when maximizing a fuel train system’s performance.
This post describes the basics of pulse firing, including how it can improve combustion system performance and efficiency.
In an automation.com article, Emerson’s Jesse Sumstad and Neil Widmer explain how accurate measurement of excess oxygen in flue gas can be used to improve combustion control. These days, industrial facilities operating combustion processes face multiple concerns,...
Emerson’s Bob Sabin works with manufacturers and producers to improve how combustion units operate. Energy costs are typically a large part of the overall operational costs for these production processes. Bob shared that many times with combustion improvement projects, people get focused on efficiency only. Often, more importantly is the reliability & availability, responsiveness, ease of operation, and ease of troubleshooting & maintenance of these units.
The Emerson Industrial Energy consulting team assisted a Northeastern U.S. specialty chemical manufacturer with modernizing the controls on two 1960’s vintage Combustion Engineering “D” Type process steam boilers.
Emerson's Andrew Smith and Jesse Sumstad presented "Tune into Savings by Maximizing Your Combustion Efficiency" at the 2019 Emerson Exchange conference. Here is the abstract of their session: There are two major, competing theories to fired equipment control:...
Process manufacturers who required heating as part of the process may have several different types of industrial heating equipment. These may include boilers, dryers, furnaces, heaters, ovens, dehydrators and more. The use and upkeep of this equipment is governed by a...
