Optimizing steam temperature reduces energy costs and increases operational reliability. In an 18-minute webcast, 3 Steps to Better Steam Temperature Control, Emerson’s Douglas Morris shares how advanced steam control for boilers and heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) improves performance. Doug shares how to effectively validate critical steam measurements, ensure optimal steam attemperation, and improve 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 […]

Steam is a critical part of many process manufacturing processes and the energy to produce it can be a significant source of operational costs. I recently caught up with process automation hall-of-fame member Greg McMillan and Emerson’s Scott Pettigrew at the Emerson Exchange conference here in Austin. Greg and Stan Weiner had recently interviewed Scott […]

Steam boilers are used in sugar mills to generate electricity and for heat in various stages of production, such as crystallization process. This process converts the sugar syrup into sugar crystals. Optimizing the performance of the boilers improves energy efficiency and reliability for this required heat and electricity. I caught up with Emerson’s Scott Pettigrew […]

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 […]
