Abstract

In this study, "energy efficiency" study has been performed for a LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) fuel annealing furnace. Within this frame, temperature, pressure, velocity, and gas analysis measurements have been made and energy and mass balances have been formed. From the measured data, the furnace total efficiency was calculated as 52.76%. The main efficiency losses: operating furnace at high air excessiveness coefficient, inadequacy of air preheater heater (recuperator) heat transfer surface area and surface thermal losses.
