The CIET team is very pleased to announce the availability of a new 2-day training course dedicated to reducing energy use and operational costs in the industrial sector – Heat Integration of Industrial Processes (HIIP).
The course is designed to help plant managers, process engineers, industrial energy consultants, process designers and other plant staff minimize energy consumption during complex industrial processes by optimization of heat exchange between hot and cold steam.
The idea of process integration is a wide-ranging solution aimed at improving EE in large and complex industrial facilities (ie: those consuming over 100,000 gigajoules of thermal energy/year or a natural gas consumption above 2,500,000 m3/year). It can be used to analyze the energy use of a whole plant or target a particular process. Ensuring processes are run as efficiently as possible can reduce energy costs, water consumption, and also greenhouse gas emissions.
Widely used to address a range of industrial challenges, one of the key tools in process integration is Pinch Analysis, which is principally used in the optimization of heat exchange networks. Utilizing pinch analysis and NRCan’s INTEGRATION software will be focal points of the course.
Employees and consultants of food and beverage companies, heavy industry, chemical plants and pulp and paper companies are good examples of established stakeholders that can benefit from process integration, as are other industrial companies which have several process heat exchangers, multiple air inputs (heating, cool and fresh air), high water consumption rates, compressed air, high cooling use, and of course energy intensive process equipment.
Our first public Heat Integration of Industrial Processes (HIIP) course will be held in Mississauga from the 21-22nd of April. The HIIP program is also available as a private, on-site training course.
