We offer tailor made training programs and have three courses available;

  • 3-Day training course for refining and gas processing specialists
  • 2-Day training course for operators in the refining and gas processing industries
  • 1-Day training course on the importance of maximizing heater performance to minimize operation cost

Direct-Fired Process Heaters Training

This course will provide an insight into the basics of thermal, mechanical design of furnaces, and also the safe and efficient, operation of this equipment. Emphasis will be on common, design methods, consideration of fuel type, combustion chemistry and heat release, combustion air supply and control, and mechanical factors will include; burners, refractory, tube design, and corrosion and fouling mitigation. Techniques to improve efficiency operate safely and meet emission guidelines will be reviewed during training session.

Who should attend?

The course is intended for professionals working with fired process heaters in the petroleum, petrochemical, chemical and allied industries and would be especially valuable to process designers, process engineers, maintenance personnel, and those involved in design, retrofitting and specification of the fired heaters.

Course Outcomes

At the end of the Training, the delegates will be able to:

  • Identify and list the applicable codes and standards for fired process heaters.
  • Determine the mechanical limitations of heaters.
  • Describe the theoretical and practical aspects of burners and combustion air supply, common and complex instrumentation applications, heater operation, tube and refractory design
  • Explain key operating parameters.
  • Employ techniques to minimize emissions, corrosion and fouling.
  • Implement safe practices.
  • Identify safety issues.
  • Identify typical problems and identify possible causes.
  • Identify the key inspection and turnaround items.
