Combustion Processes

Combustion is an almost universal process in energy use, and it usually offers opportunities for modest but worthwhile energy savings through good management. Conversely, it carries a significant risk of avoidable energy waste.

In this course, you will learn the basics of combustion chemistry, how avoidable losses arise, and how they are measured. Particular attention will be paid to burners fitted in heating boilers but the basic principles are applicable to any kind of combustion plant.
