This course focuses on recent developments in burner design for process heating applications including boilers, furnaces, refinery operations, power plant, CHP schemes, minerals processing kilns and process plant. Particular emphasis is given to combustion aerodynamics and its influence on burner design, low NOx burner design and emission reduction techniques including reburn, SNCR, SCR and NOx storage techniques. These aspects are examined in relation to large natural gas burners, pulverised coal firing, refinery burners, heavy fuel oil burners, flameless combustion, waste and bio-fuel firing, oxy-fuel firing and fluidised bed combustion. Large scale burner testing and the role of CFD in burner design are also covered.
The 2014 programme and online booking will be available approximately 3 months prior to the course dates. You can however view the 2013 course details in the left hand column.
The course is designed to provide training on the most recent developments in burner technology primarily for young graduates involved in combustion engineering, for burner designers and manufacturers, and for personnel responsible for combustion plant or new burner installation.
