Industrial process efficiency: improving cooling and heating systems performance
- COURSE OUTLINE
- SPEAKER BIO(S)
Learn a systematic approach to improving the energy efficiency of process cooling and heating systems. You will walk away with an understanding of energy-efficiency opportunities in the end uses, distribution, and primary conversion of energy for each system. Join internationally renowned and U.S. Department of Energy certified energy expert, Dr. Kelly Kissock, for a fast-paced and informative training on industrial process cooling and heating.
Participants will learn how to minimize steam-system losses through a variety of factors including better insulation, improved combustion, pressure, blow-down control, openings in conveyance and heat storage, minimizing air leakage and employing heat reclaim. Discover the importance of reducing heat gain into cold spaces and how to use heat exchangers to decrease end-use cooling loads in process cooling systems. You will understand how to employ counter-flow heat transfer to increase cooling temperature requirements and decrease energy use. The training will also cover how to model cooling tower performance and chiller-plant optimization.
Please note that in order to receive continuing education credits, you must be present for the entire training; partial credit cannot be given.
