Natural gas-powered burner-boiler fuel trains need to be carefully designed and managed to satisfy industrial safety and regulatory requirements Among the most critical components in the fuel train is the safety shutoff valve and actuator.
Developments in fuel-train safety-valve technology provide options that can help improve energy efficiency and reliability.
The connection between the tube and the tubesheet — called the tube-end joint — is arguably the most critical aspect of a heat exchanger. Factors to consider include joint design, the welding equipment to be used, proper cleaning of the tube and tubesheet prior to welding, the welding-expansion sequence, and testing and inspection.
With an inefficient heating equipment configuration, operators can experience dwell time and temperature increases that lead to a decrease in production output. But, before you can optimize the drying method used in your process, you must evaluate the heating method and product to be heated.
Since 1994, Process Heating has produced our exclusive Equipment Overviews on a range of heat processing equipment, including industrial ovens. These matrixes — ow reimagined for our eMagazine — allow readers to review the capabilities of a single manufacturer or identify all of the manufacturers with specific experience.
