Fired heaters are in the refining and petroleum industry. In the current scenario, it is important to maximize fired heater efficiency to the maximum achievable. Revamping is a cost effective way to maximize fired heater efficiency: FIS has carried out several heater revamp projects in the past 5 years to improve heater efficiency. We intend to present 2-3 case studies showing the systems approach taken during projects to help improve efficiency of heaters. We were able to improve the thermal efficiency of the heaters from 8% to 20%.
