- Knowing the four principle emissions from combustion boilers; nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulfur dioxide (SO2), particulate matter (PM) and carbon monoxide (CO)
- Learning how to maximize efficiency by understanding combustion losses and boiler losses
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review Chapter 3, "Fuels, Emissions, and Efficiency" of the Department of Energy (DOE) Publication "Guide to Low-Emission Boiler and Combustion Equipment Selection".
This online engineering PDH course describes the construction of plate heat exchangers as well as tube and shell heat exchangers. It also describes the flow patterns and temperature profiles in parallel flow, counter flow, and cross flow heat exchangers.
The transfer of thermal energy between fluids is one of the most important and frequently used processes in engineering. The transfer of heat is usually accomplished by means of a device known as a heat exchanger. Common applications of heat exchangers include boilers, fan coolers, cooling water heat exchangers, and condensers.
