The Process Engineer’s Whiteboard – Heater and Boiler Maximum Tube Temperatures

As we evaluate fired heaters and boilers, the combustion and heat transfer experts at Norton Engineering Consultants often have to calculate the maximum short term operating temperature for heater and boiler tubes using API-530. By understanding these limits we can set the proper operating limits and design safety systems to ensure safe and reliable operation. Call us today for your boiler and fired heater evaluation!
