Born / OnQuest has performed successful furnace designs and supplied world-class direct-fired heaters and associated equipment to premier refiners, and petrochemical companies in Canada, the United States, and around the world for over 30 Years.
Direct-fired heaters operate successfully at facilities worldwide, and are used in a wide range of specialized process applications. But they consume significant amounts of energy, and variables including feed-stock costs, furnace temperature, flow-rate and pressure will affect operating efficiency—and the bottom line.Optimizing direct-fired heaters is therefore vitally important.
The emphasis on safety in the design and operation of direct-fired heaters has steadily increased in the last two decades—and the technology relating to electronic control and automated operation of burners has evolved with it. With the opportunity to fine-tune burners plant engineers can not only increase safety but also improve efficiency and lower fuel costs.
