Better Plants Online Learning Series - Webinar 9 - Process Heating and Waste Heat Recovery

Process heating accounts for about 70% of all process energy (energy applied to convert material into manufactured products) used in the U.S. manufacturing sector. This webinar introduces process heating and energy-saving measures for industrial process heating equipment such as furnaces, dryers, ovens, heaters and kilns. During this webinar, the audience will learn performing a heat balance for a heating system, overall waste heat opportunities in various industries, and typical waste heat recovery methods. The webinar will quickly introduce participants to DOE’s new MEASUR tool (Process Heating Assessment module). MEASUR helps survey furnaces and heaters, identify major energy-using equipment, prioritize improvement opportunities, and assess available methods to improve thermal efficiency in industrial plants. Join us to learn more about the various resources for improving your process heat systems.
