Twenty-First Annual Sulfuric Acid Workshop

Steam Systems in Sulfuric Acid Plants

This year’s Sulfuric Acid Workshop will focus on various aspects of engineering, specification, fabrication, operation and maintenance of heat recovery steam systems utilized in the sulfuric plants including waste heat boilers, superheaters, and economizers. The Workshop will include a review of specifications, fabrication, quality control, steam purity, steam quality, water treatment, and maintenance.

The session will include presentations that will be geared towards practicing engineers with various degrees of exposure to the sulfuric acid process, plant operation, and plant maintenance. The Workshop’s objective is to assist engineers in evaluating the operation and the maintenance of their plants.
