Fired Process Heaters

  August 09, 2017  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
4-7 December 2017

Who Should Attend?
The course would be valuable to professionals working with fired process heaters in the petroleum refining, petrochemical, chemical and related industries, such as:

  • Process Engineers/Designers
  • Mechanical Engineers/Designers
  • Heat Transfer Engineers/Designers
  • Project Engineers/Managers
  • Maintenance Personnel
  • Operators
  • Those involved in design, specification, and retrofitting of fired heaters

Course Description
Fired process heaters (also known as fired heaters, process heaters, furnaces, process furnaces, and direct-fired heaters) are critical pieces of equipment in petroleum refineries, petrochemical plants, chemical plants, and other industrial process facilities where providing heat to a process fluid at elevated temperature levels is required. They are a major consumer of energy in such facilities, and their proper operation is integral to their safety, reliability, production capacity, and profitability.

This 4-day accredited course will provide insight to the design parameters and limitations of both thermal/hydraulic and mechanical/structural design of fired process heaters and ancillary equipment (burners, fans, air preheaters, etc.). Additional major topics include instrumentation and controls, operations and troubleshooting, mitigation of emissions/corrosion/fouling, and revamping/modification. Techniques for specification development and proposal/design evaluation also will be discussed. The course will be taught in interactive lecture format, with roundtable discussions for certain topics.
Organized by: CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers:
   Nicholas Bohensky: Senior Principal Engineer and Subject Matter Expert, Babcock Power

Nicholas Bohensky is currently the Senior Principal Engineer and Subject Matter Expert at Babcock Power for their Struthers Wells Fired Heater product line, with the primary responsibility of thermal and hydraulic design of fired process heaters and ancillary equipment. He has over 23 years of experience in this topic, as well as in proposal development, applications engineering staff management and training, and contract negotiation for both new and aftermarket fired heater applications. He has previously worked for Foster Wheeler Fired Heater Division and Petro-Chem Development Company. He has presented numerous presentations on fired heaters, both to customers and in-house personnel for training, and has been active in the American Petroleum Institute’s revisions of standards 560 (Fired Heaters for General Refinery Service), 530 (Calculation of Heater-tube Thickness in Petroleum Refineries) and development of 561 (Reforming Furnaces for Hydrogen and Syngas Production).

Mr. Bohensky holds a BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rutgers College of Engineering and a MS degree in Management from Stevens Institute of Technology. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of New Jersey.
