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...
Optimizing Energy Usage in Multi-Fuel Boilers
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...
Operational Flexibility in Power Means More Revenue
Flexibility to meet changing customer demand benefits many manufacturers. This is especially true in the power industry as Emerson's Douglas Morris explains. With the growth of renewable power, generators are working to improve the flexibility of their thermal power...
Multi-Fuel Boiler Control and Optimization Webinar
Update: Here's the link to the recorded webinar. Controlling fuel costs by shifting fuel sources remains a focus for process manufacturers around the globe. Emerson's Bob Sabin, Nick Taylor and Steve Offer will be holding an online webinar, Enabling Energy Management:...
Biomass Fuel in Alternative Energy Production
I caught up last week with Emerson's Al Novak. You may recall Al from some of our alternative fuels-related posts. He mentioned that they had another Alternative Fuels and Energy Summit in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The focus of this summit was on using "biomass" feed...
Efficiently Operating and Optimizing Boiler Performance
Boilers remain a large source of energy consumption in most plants. Emerson's Bob Sabin, whom you may recall from many earlier energy management-related posts, has some great thoughts on a recent Plant Services magazine article. The article Boiler inspection and...
