Course Summary

Steam and compressed air systems consume significant energy in industrial plants. In addition, there are many opportunities to recover waste heat from various industrial processes. Therefore, energy efficient design and appropriate operation strategies for
these systems have the potential to significantly reduce energy consumption in industrial facilities. Major topics discussed include the function of the various components in steam and compressed air systems, heat and mass transfer analysis, evaluation of system performance, potential for heat recovery, influence of different variables on energy optimization, energy efficient design, operation and control strategies, sustainable practices, selection and arrangement of heat recovery devices, operations and maintenance.

Course Objective

Participants will be equipped with the understanding of:

  1. Understand the functions and components of compressed air and steam systems
  2. Analyse energy performance characteristics and identify potential energy saving opportunities in compressed air and steam systems
  3. Select heat recovery devices and analyse heat transfer performance
  4. Operate the above systems in an energy efficient manner

Target Audience

  • Energy Managers
  • Management Representatives
  • Facilities/Energy Managers, Executives and Supervisors
