Energy Conservation Measures presented at First International Oil, Gas and Petrochemical Congress, Isfahan, Iran - September 1993.
The study of a heater for improving its energy consumption may take the following typical route:
~ Study existing documentation of the Heater
~ Analyse and evaluate improvement possibilities
~ Simulate the Heater and study the various alternatives
~ Carry out a pricing and economic analysis of the alternatives
~ Propose the most optimal revamp, in monetary terms and in suitability.
However, the energy conservation for the unit does not only comprise the increase in efficiency of the heater by means of waste heat recovery. During the conservations measures, the study of the unit and some process integration may also be necessary.
