As a result of this course you will be able to:

  • Identify industrial waste heat sources and their characteristics.
  • Discuss tools to help you calculate recoverable waste heat from different applications.
  • Describe industrial waste heat recovery technologies and the appropriate use of these technologies.
  • Discuss real-world industrial waste heat recovery examples including implementation and results.
  • Explain current and emerging waste heat recovery technologies.

Who should attend?
Manufacturing plant managers, facility managers and engineers, maintenance personnel, energy managers, building operators, contractors, energy efficiency specialists, mechanical engineers, and anyone responsible or interested in evaluating waste heat recovery opportunities and reducing energy consumption in industrial facilities.

Through case studies, discussion and classroom participation; learn how to identify, quantify and transfer energy that is typically wasted to other productive end uses at industrial facilities. Waste heat characteristics will be explored including where it is commonly found and how to determine its magnitude. Recovery methods in commonly used energy systems such as boilers, furnaces, ovens, dryers, reciprocating engines and steam systems will be reviewed. Technologies and equipment used in waste heat recycling, using waste heat within the same system, will also be examined; as well as the use of heat to meet other needs within a facility such as HVAC, hot water heating and steam generation. Arvind will be sure to review not only the current, but emerging technologies with corresponding equipment or systems.
