Heat & Mass Balances
Heat balance calculations are needed to estimate the energy requirements and the cost of the process, as well as the operation preconditions. In fact, no process will work unless the heat balance is met.
Heat and mass balance calculations of the furnace process at steady state aim at two objectives:
- Firstly, they aim characterising the operational efficiency of a given furnace based on measured results and
- Secondly, they intend to predict future results of the same furnace under different operating conditions.
Overall Heat Balance of a Glass Melting Furnace
- Extremely fast
- Showing tendencies when changing any type of input parameters such as fuel volume or temperatures
- Very cost efficient
