This course is a compliment to the Fundamentals of Industrial Process Heating and provides the student with an ind depth view of the control and efficient operation of industrial process heating equipment.  Students will become familiar with a variety of oven, furnace, and kiln types used in industry.  Upon completion  of the course the student will have general knowledge of instrumentation and control for efficient operation of furnaces and ovens in process heating.  The student will learn about the wide variety of refractories and insulation used in process heating equipment as well as their operating  considerations. The use of vacuum heat processing, recuperators, regenerators, gas atmospheres, and quenching will also be presented.  Particular attention is spent on efficient operation of process heating equipment and methods to achieve cost savings. 

Course Learning Outcomes:
  Students successfully completing this course will be able to:

  • Demonstrate knowledge of the types of ovens, furnaces and kilns
  • Develop an understanding of the types and operation of refractories and insulation
  • Determine the energy savings associated with the use of recuperators and regenerators
  • Develop an understanding of the instrumentation and controls used in process heating equipment
  • Discuss the types of gas atmospheres used in process heating and the equipment used
  • Describe the mechanisms, metallurgical aspects, testing and evaluation associated with quenching
  • Develop an understanding of vacuum heat processing

This is an 8 week long online course which begins Monday, October 15.  The course will end on December 16 (an extra week is added for Thanksgiving break).  Coursework consists of weekly power point lessons, forum questions and quizzes.  There is also a final exam.
