Innovating Clean Energy Technologies in Advanced Manufacturing: Process Heating
This online engineering PDH course provides information about the energy savings potential for process heating systems in the manufacturing industry.
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. Past research investments in process heating and related topics have led to innovations that have improved industrial energy efficiency. Although no significant, pervasive process heating breakthroughs have been adopted recently by industry, incremental technology advances have been achieved in a few areas.
Process heating unit operations are fundamental to materials transformations and a wide range of manufacturing operations. Advances in process heating technologies could not only lead to lower manufacturing energy and emissions and associated costs, but could enable the manufacture of improved materials, technologies, and products.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical, chemical, sustainability and industrial engineers as well as others interesting in learning more about the potential energy saving opportunities for process heating systems in the U.S.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Familiarizing with the concepts and definitions of industrial process heating
- Understanding the distinction between fuel, steam, electrical, and hybrid-based process heating systems
- Learning about various technology advances and opportunities for energy savings / energy reduction
- Familiarizing with the risks, uncertainties, and other considerations associated with industrial process heating systems
