One day Basics of Combustion in Glass Melting Furnaces course

  

The one day training course will be held on Monday  June 3, 2019 at Ametek Land in Dronfield, UK and is aimed at Batch and Furnace department and associated personnel. 

The primary audience is furnace operators, supervisors and supporting staff in Environmental, Maintenance, Engineers and related suppliers.

Upon completion of the workshop participants should be:

 aware of basic combustion technology within the context of energy use and emissions legislation;

 able to describe the basic processes of burner adjustment for good furnace operation; 

 confident in applying a troubleshooting and combustion optimisation processes; and

 aware of oxy-fuel and emerging burner technologies.

As a result of recent emission legislation many plants have to meet increased emissions limits specifically for NOx.

In many companies there are only one or two personnel who know how the current low NOx burners work and have the confidence to adjust burners. 

This is frequently the highest single point of energy utilisation on a glass plant.

The goal of the morning session is to give all operators a basic understanding of combustion and burner adjustment for good furnace operation with confidence to start the troubleshooting or optimisation process. 

To conclude there will be an overview of oxy-fuel and other new technology.
