The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) announced that the 2019 Fall Seminars and Fall Business Conference will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 24-26. The technical seminar series will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by the Fall Business Conference on Thursday at the Intercontinental Cleveland. The Combustion Seminar and the Safety Standards and Codes Seminar will take place concurrently over both days. There will also be two separate one-day seminars on infrared heating and induction technology. Attendees of all four seminars will enjoy access to IHEA’s tabletop exhibition and reception on the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 24.
Registration is open for IHEA’s Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating online learning course, which begins on April 15. The course is ideal for students who wish to further their studies at home or work in a flexible web-based, distance-learning format. It’s an affordable alternative to campus-based classes and allows students to go at their own pace.

My colleagues and I have been in the combustion business for many years and have a wide range of experience with single-burner and multi-burner applications. What follows is some basic information concerning the maintenance and adjustment of combustion systems.
In multiple-burner installations on industrial ovens and furnaces, pulse-firing techniques can improve temperature uniformity, reduce emissions and cut overall fuel costs. Is it right for your process?
This article discusses how the unique capabilities of two new burners helped SDI La Farga increase productivity, decrease specific fuel consumption and significantly reduce burner maintenance time in its secondary copper-melting furnace.
Optimized production and minimized maintenance requirements are desirable conditions in any heat-treating operation. For applications depending on radiant-tube heat, following a few fundamental tips can help you achieve those goals.
