Course Description

Introduction

Combustion and Heat Transfer for Refinery Operations GLOMACS training seminar will present an overview of fuel combustion principles and heat transfer basics and discuss their direct implication to refinery fired process heaters and steam boilers operation, efficiency and reliability.

In spite of its large energy consumption and undeniable significance refinery fired heaters and boilers had been usually “taken for granted” in refinery operation. The mounting need to accommodate the concepts of plant efficiency and equipment reliability into day-to-day refinery operation requires a more technical approach to the operation of these units. Plant operators and technicians, being the first and most immediate interface with this critical plant equipment, need to be fully prepared to handle their significant role in an efficient, safe, environmentally conscious manner. Exposing these personnel to combustion and heat transfer issues and to their repercussions to energy savings, equipment integrity and global climate change would be a straightforward manner to enhance refinery returns.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Typical fired heater and boiler fuels
  • Combustion principles and heat transfer basics
  • Process heater types, components and service applications
  • Burners, function, types and characteristics
  • Fired heaters performance
  • Refinery boilers and operational performance

Objectives

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

  • Relate refinery fuels to gaseous emissions
  • Learn combustion and heat transfer fundamentals
  • Understand fired heater and boiler components and functions
  • Evaluate fired heater and boiler performance
  • Undertake effective measures to enhance equipment efficiency

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Combustion and Heat Transfer for Refinery Operations training seminar is intended to be a dynamic and interactive learning experience for delegates whose questions and comments will be welcome by the instructor. It uses theory but emphasizes hands-on working exercises and guided discussions to provide thorough coverage of concepts and methodologies and to gain access to essential skills leading to enhanced process heater and steam boiler operation.

Organisational Impact

The organization will benefit from this GLOMACS training seminar by:

  • A more methodical and efficient plant operation
  • Improved equipment reliability and mechanical integrity
  • Time and money savings by less maintenance and extended heater runs
  • Increased plant and staff safety
  • Motivated operators by their individual contribution to plant productivity
  • Enhanced plant preparedness into environmental compliance

Personal Impact

Seminar attendees will learn to:

  • Apply combustion and heat transfer fundamentals
  • Improve heaters and boilers energy utilization
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Increase heater charge rates and run lengths
  • Preserve equipment integrity
  • Contribute to superior plant safety records and emission compliance

Who Should Attend?

This GLOMACS training seminar will greatly benefit plant personnel who need a pragmatic understanding of theory to complement and improve their hands-on grasp of process heaters and boilers.

This GLOMACS training course is suitable to plant operators and technicians but will greatly benefit:

  • Process Plant Shift Leaders
  • Process Heater Maintenance, Control and Service Technicians
  • Refinery Inspection, Materials, Environmental and Safety Technicians
