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 […]

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 units to help smooth the variability of power supply from wind and solar. Producers must be […]

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 stocks and using biochemical, thermochemical, or combustion technologies to convert the […]
