Description of the service

optimizacionThe optimization of processes, equipment and systems may be achieved through the following:
Process Simulation:

  • Modeling with Fluid-Dynamic Codes (FDC), including the modeling of boilers and combustion processes, as well as any system for:
    • Optimization of the combustion process in order to reduce emissions
    • Optimization of flow and emission measuring equipment location
    • Systems Simulation:
    • Study of possible design modifications (air-gas ducts, boiler – furnace, heat exchangers, control, etc.)
    • Performance of transient tests
    • Optimization of operation procedures
  • Component efficiency measurement:
    • Prediction of fouling
    • Leak assessment
    • ST Performance Improvement studies
  • Studies of feasibilities and alternatives, including analysis of possible pollution reduction techniques.
