Fired heaters or “process furnaces” are used extensively by the refining and petrochemical industries. These heat transfer units generate the much needed process energy through the combustion of fuels, which is transferred to process fluids. The hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI) uses fired heaters in a wide variety of applications with different manufacturing goals. For large process duties, higher process outlet temperatures and specialized processes, fired heaters are the preferred heat transfer equipment. Operating heaters safely is even more important due to the combustion and explosion risks involved. As large consumers of energy, operating heaters efficiently can result
