Course Description

Introduction

Combustion and Heat Transfer for Refinery Operations GLOMACS online 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 online 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 online 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 online training seminar will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training seminar is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.
