Introduction

This GLOMACS training seminar on Enhancing Efficiency and Reliability in Refinery Process Heaters training seminar will present an overview of refinery fired process heaters and will discuss most relevant routine inspection and operational evaluation aspects as well as a hands-on methodology for heater continuous assessment and improved efficiency and reliability.

Neglected for years, high-energy consuming process heaters have been gradually obtaining increased attention in the Middle East due to higher natural gas prices and the shortage of domestic supply. These facts have prompted an urgent need to accommodate effective measures to increase process heater efficiency into day-to-day refinery operations and in conjunction with it, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Refinery engineers and managers are progressively being exposed to combustion and heat transfer issues and their implications to the concepts of energy conservation and equipment reliability.

This GLOMACS Enhancing Efficiency and Reliability in Refinery Process Heaters training seminar is focused on providing the essential combustion and heat transfer technical background needed to examine and apprehend a variety of practical ideas by which plant personnel involved in process heater performance could improve equipment efficiency and capacity in an economical and environmentally friendly fashion. Example calculations will be interleaved into seminar sessions to gradually unveil a practical methodology for heater evaluation. Working examples illustrating practical means to attain efficiency improvements will also be discussed.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Typical process heater fuels and major polluting emissions
  • Process heater types, major components, burners and service applications
  • Routine inspection and operational evaluation methodology
  • Heater integrity and troubleshooting
  • Practical means to increase heater duty, process flow and efficiency

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Identify heater main components and functions
  • Calculate heater carbon footprint and other pollutants
  • Develop a heater monitoring and evaluation methodology
  • Optimize daily heater operation and thermal efficiency
  • Advise on efficiency improvement projects
