At the 2018 Emerson Exchange conference, Emerson’s Bob Sabin and Scott Pettigrew presented, Combustion Control Optimized with Patented Control Configuration. Bob opened describing the Emerson Industrial Energy Consulting group and how they work with manufacturers and producers in many industries about combustion control and optimization. Fuel air curves have been used for decades to control […]

Many industrial processes require thermal energy as part of the production process. Steam is often the heat carrier because it highly absorbs this thermal energy and transports easily via piping. Industrial boilers are used to convert the energy in fuel to the thermal energy in the steam. Boiler control strategies must be developed to operate […]

Controlling industrial combustion-based units such as boilers, heaters and furnace has historically relied on the use of fuel-to-air curves. These curves represent the amount of fuel and air required for a given load. In this 4:28 video, Patented Combustion Solution From Emerson Improves Performance, Emerson’s Bob Sabin describes how stoichiometric, math-based control approach from common […]

Plan. Do. Check. Act. From Wikipedia: PDCA (plan–do–check–act or plan–do–check–adjust) is an iterative four-step management method used in business for the control and continual improvement of processes and products. It is also known as the Deming circle/cycle/wheel, Shewhart cycle, control circle/cycle, or plan–do–study–act (PDSA). The ISO 50001:2011 global energy management standard, modeled after the ISO […]

Emerson’s Bob Sabin, Tim Badger and Scott Pettigrew teamed up on the presentation, Fix Tough Measurement Problems to Improve Boiler Operation. Their abstract: While boilers are crucial to plant/mill business results, many times their performance is lacking. Poor combustion causes higher fuel costs and increased emissions. Lack of reliability and response hurts site production throughput […]
