Also detect filter leaks with this loop-powered flow monitor
May 01, 2014
This loop-powered particulate-matter flow and emissions monitor (photo) also detects filter leaks in baghouses, cartridge dust collectors and cyclones. Simple two-wire installation and single-piece mounting, along with heavy-duty construction and charge-induction sensing with no optics enable low-maintenance operations, even in applications with challenging particulate types, such as flyash from coal and carbon black, and emissions from smelters, foundries, cement kilns and powder dryers. - FilterSense Inc., Beverly, Mass. www.filtersense.com

Fired Heaters: Best Practices for the Control of Fuel Gas
May 01, 2014
Large petroleum-refining complexes often have dozens of fired heaters, making broad-based competency in this area essential to overall reliability, safety and energy efficiency. Despite industry's widespread familiarity with fired heaters, they continue to pose significant challenges during initial control-system design and unless properly specified, operated and maintained, fired heaters can hinder good control and reliable operation going forward. All fuel-gas-fired heaters have basic features in common, but no two applications are exactly the same, and an industry best practice for fuel-gas control has never emerged. Even one of the most basic questions - whether to use fuel-gas-flow control or pressure control - remains open, with little industry guidance available. A helpful approach to move toward industry standardization is to identify the most common and successful practices based on current technology and experience, for use as a design starting point and a reference point.
