Improving Process Heating System Performance: A Sourcebook for Industry is a development of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) and the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA). The AMO and IHEA undertook this project as part of an series of sourcebook publications developed by AMO on energy-consuming industrial systems, and opportunities to improve performance. Other topics in this series include compressed air systems, pumping systems, fan systems, steam systems, and motors and drives.
This Sourcebook outlines opportunities for energy and performance improvements in process heating systems, and is intended to help the reader identify improvement opportunities in their own facilities. This Sourcebook is not a substitute for a rigorous engineering-based assessment and evaluation of the technical and economic potential of any process heating improvement.
