Fired heaters, dryers, heat exchangers, boilers and other pieces of plant equipment pose a serious threat to day to day safety, as well as, represent poor energy efficiency in most cases. Fired heaters are the largest overall energy consumer in the process industries and represent a tremendous opportunity for energy savings, according to Yokogawa. Fired heaters also present huge safety risks during startup and shutdown. CombustionONE delivers increased safety, reduced energy costs, improved regulatory compliance and lower asset sustainability life cycle costs. World class automation technology is combined with process knowledge expertise, applications solutions and on ongoing “wellness management” to keep the production asset alive and well for many years.
