DSS Energy Efficiency: Fuels & The Combustion Process

DSS Energy Efficiency: Fuels & The Combustion Process is part five of the DSS Energy Efficiency 16-part training series featuring DSS owner-operator content.

It is essential that facilities establish energy management procedures that are unique to the fuels, equipment, and systems used. This course covers fuel types and characteristics, the combustion process and its equipment, and the control systems typically used on industrial combustion devices.

Course objectives include:

  • Exercise proper safety precautions when working with fuels and the combustion process
  • Compare the characteristics of coal, oil, and natural gas
  • Understand the combustion process
  • Control the fuel air ratio of the combustion process using different control systems
  • Apply specific best practices for energy efficiency to fuels and combustion.
