Fuel-train systems, or “valve safety trains,” are designed to safely deliver fuel to burners for the heating of boilers, dryers, process ovens, thermal oxidizers or other fuel-fired industrial equipment.
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.
United Process Controls Inc. (UPC) plans to relocate its U.S. headquarters from West Chester, Ohio, to Oak Creek, Wis., in December. The relocation is the second phase of the company’s initiative to unify its U.S. operations to one centralized location. UPC completed the first phase earlier this year, which saw its two Wisconsin facilities come together under a larger facility in Oak Creek. The 30,000-square-foot plant accommodates the flow controls business and will provide additional manufacturing space for the company’s product lines. It will also house an expanded laboratory as well as engineering, manufacturing, sales and service personnel.
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?
