Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool Training – 2-hour webcast
Availability: Online webcast
A two-hour webcast on the use of the Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool (PHAST) is available that introduces the tool and presents the basics—and the benefits—of using it to target opportunities for energy savings in your plant.
Process Heating System Assessment – self-paced workshop
Availability: Online self-paced workshop
This workshop provides an introduction to process heating and process heating equipment, such as furnaces, dryers, ovens, heaters, and kilns, used by industry. The course includes discussion of combustion and other heating methods; heat transfer in furnaces; waste heat recovery; commonly used process heating controls; and emissions from heating processes.
Access this workshop if you are a process engineer, plant operator, maintenance engineer, process heating equipment designer, plant or corporate energy coordinator, or consulting engineer and learn:
- Practical tips on process heating and maintenance
- How to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions from furnaces
- How to use PHAST software
The session highlights the application of PHAST, which helps users survey furnaces and heaters, identify major energy-using equipment, prioritize improvement opportunities, and assess available methods to improve thermal efficiency in an industrial plant.
