Heat Transfer Efficiency Optimization



Heat Transfer Improvements
The heat transfer capability of many process heaters limits the production capability of a facility. In many systems, heat transfer improvements do not have to be obtained by the complete replacement of the full system. The performance enhancements can be obtained by process and small modifications to the existing equipment. Learn more >

Burner Operational Improvements
The Therm-A-Cor staff has evaluated and improved the performance of a wide variety of combustion and heat transfer systems. With a unique knowledge of the combustion processes, construction practices and material response characteristics, a Therm-A-Cor engineer can quickly evaluate the operation of any manufacture's combustion equipment.

System Optimization
Therm-A-Cor performs detailed operational reviews of combustion and heat transfer systems. Plant operational capacity may be increased through improvements in the performance of combustion and heat transfer systems. The improvements are obtained after a comprehensive evaluation of the actual system operating conditions coupled with a realistic assessment of the equipment capability. The evaluation will provide recommended equipment or operational modifications to improve the operation of the system. Therm-A-Cor has evaluated kiln combustion, process heaters and air pollution control systems. Learn more >

Fume Handling And Control
The handling of contaminated fume streams is generally a troublesome task for many production facilities. New fume streams are being added to the existing fume collection systems to comply with new EPA regulations. The composition of the new vent stream is not always known. This new stream may be flammable or inert.

Combustion System Safety, Heat Transfer Safety
Over time, the modifications and changes made to a combustion or heat transfer system will change many aspects of its operation. Some of these changes may compromise the function of the original safeties. Additionally some of the safeties may not be providing any benefit due to the new parameters that are added. Therm-A-Cor provides audits of combustion, incineration and fired heat transfer safety systems to evaluate their current status. Learn more >

Vent Collection System
Manufacturing and process plants collect the emissions from process units, tanks, vessels and other odor or emission locations in their facilities.  These fumes can be mainly air or a combination of air and nitrogen with organic material from the tanks or reactors.  The fumes are typically treated in an Thermal Oxidizer (TO), RTO (Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer),  RCO (Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer),  Catalytic Oxidizer,  incinerator, boiler or used to supply air or heat in process equipment.  The high temperature of the treatment equipment will destroy most of the organic material to meet EPA and State emissions standards.  The required destruction level is set by the local regulators.

RTO Explosion
The Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) is utilized in many fume control applications.  It is used in particular when high volumes of air contain small amounts of organic material that must be destroyed.  Problems, such as fire and explosions in the duct, will occur if the organic concentration gets too high.   When designing the RTO, one must pay extreme attention to detail including the operational conditions and safety requirements to prevent fires in the ductwork.  Many of these concerns also apply to the Recuperative Thermal Oxidizer (RCO).
