Combustion Stabilization in Reciprocating Engines and its Impact on Reliability- Webinar

 

 

ABOUT THIS WEBINAR

COMBUSTION STABILIZATION IN RECIPROCATING ENGINES AND ITS IMPACT ON RELIABILITY 2

Legacy reciprocating engines are critical assets to all pipeline companies.  The method in which they are monitored and maintained significantly impacts each asset's overall life cycle.  Combustion stabilization within this equipment has the potential to reduce green house gas (GHG) emissions, extend mean time between failure (MTBF), improve fuel economy and extend its useful life. 

This course is a continuation of the GMRC Introduction to Internal Combustion Engines course (available on-demand) in which deeper concepts will be explored.  Attendees will be educated through presentation, virtual interaction and demonstration by use of a simulator built by the instructor.  Join us in exploring a unique perspective on Combustion Stabilization in Reciprocating Engines and its Impact on Reliability. 

   

You will learn:

  • Combustion and Fire Triangle Review
  • What is Fuel Balancing?
  • Importance of Fuel Balancing/Combustion Stabilization
  • Steps to Complete Fuel Balancing
  • Air/Fuel Ratio vs Trapped Equivalency Ratio
  • Fuel Balancing Components (Mechanical Breakdown)
  • Impact of Balancing/Stabilization on Emissions
  • Balancing Utilizing a Windrock PA System
  • Introduction to Equalization Lines
  • Full 'Virtual' Demonstration Utilizing a Fuel Rail Simulator

 

Attendees will receive 2 Professional Development Hours

 

 

Who Should Attend 

All level Engineers, Analysts, Technicians, Mechanics, FSRs, Project Managers and Reliability Engineers interested in gaining a more in-depth understanding of Fuel Rail Balancing and Combustion Stabilization

 Mary Savalle, PMP, REC

A passionate and unapologetic advocate for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) educational opportunities, Detroit native Mary Savalle attended Wayne State University and completed her final year of undergraduate studies at Polytechnica Universidad de Puerto Rico.

Her multi-faceted career began with DTE and includes experience with large natural gas engines and compressors, diagnosing engine/compressor defects, leadership at the largest gas storage facility in Michigan, supporting the Continuous Improvement Department, Reliability Engineer, Principal Reliability Engineer, and Capital Project Manager.

Mary’s professional credentials include:

  • BS in Mechanical Engineering
  • Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
  • Project Management Professional (PMP)
  • Reliability Engineering Certification (REC) through Clemson University. 

 

She has published industry papers, travels nationally teaching courses on internal combustion engine concepts and has developed training devices for kinesthetic learners. She has worked with companies around the world in research, analysis and training activities.

Mary’s passion for STEAM and community has resulted in partnerships with a local art store and elementary school to teach children STEAM concepts. Utilizing art and artifacts to create an interactive and engaging experience for 50 students each month, Mary is striving to ignite the STEAM movement in the next generation.
