Title: Calculating Fired Heater Efficiency
Author: Harriz, J. T.; Ritter, E. L.
Abstract: Tracking utility and process heater efficiency leads to increased operator awareness and decreased fuel bills. A review of the Heat Loss and Input/Output methods of efficiency analyses is presented, along with a discussion of their relative accuracy. Examples cited include refinery mixed fuel gas, coal, and chemical recovery fueled applications, using HHV and LHV calculations. The techniques presented can be applied to improve operator awareness, monitor equipment performance, and evaluate capital improvement opportunities.
