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

  • Identify industrial waste heat sources and their characteristics.
  • Explain various aspects of waste heat reduction and recovery.
  • 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.

Who should attend?
Manufacturing plant managers, facility managers and engineers, maintenance personnel, energy managers, building operators, contractors, energy efficiency specialists and anyone responsibility or interest 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. Reduction methods in commonly used energy systems such as boilers, furnaces, ovens, dryers, reciprocating engines, steam systems and compressed air 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.
