FROM THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS
ON HEATING PIPE CONSTRUCTION: THERMAL CONDITIONS, DESIGN, AUTOMATION, AND ECOLOGY
The Third International Congress AHeating Pipe Construction: Thermal Conditions, Design, Automation, and Ecology was
held in Moscow at the Russian Academy for the State Service to the President of the Russian Federation on 4 – 6 June 2008,
which was organized by the RosTeplostroiMontazh, the Russian Technical Inspectorate, and the Prokhorov Academy of Engi
neering Sciences. The topics in the Congress were as follows:
– building and upgrading heating plant;
– industrial safety in metallurgy, power engineering, general engineering, petrochemistry, and the production of building
– the design, building, and repair of chimneys, and extending their life.
There were the following sections: theoretical (heat physics, energy and ecological analysis, general oven theory, mathemati
cal simulation, and monitoring and control systems); metallurgy (upgrading metallurgical furnaces, using the latest equipment,
refractory materials and automation, and improved ecology); power engineering (efficient operation of boilers and thermal power
stations, chimneys and ventilation, expert reports on industrial safety); the petrochemical industry (improving furnace perfor
mance, upgrading equipment, efficiency and automation, use of new linings); production of refractories and building materials
(using the latest progressive materials in various industries, new Russian developments and their applications, upgrading furnaces
for building material industry, new equipment, burners). Yu. P. Storozhkov, the President of the RosTeplostroiMontazh Associa
tion, gave the introductory address to the congress, which dealt with the main lines of work in the congress and the tasks of set
ting up industrial furnaces and plants in the 21st century.
The participants numbered 200 and included engineers, major specialists, the scientific directors of sectional institutes and of
the Prokhorov Academy of Engineering Sciences, the heads of departments of leading technical colleges in the country, the direc
tors from 81 organizations, and also representatives from Belarus, Germany, Canada, the USA, and other countries. The sections
were held in the form of round tables, and 25 papers were read and seven lectures were delivered.
The editors of this journal present a series of articles from the congress materials. These deal with topics concerning promis-
ing refractory and heat-insulating materials, and also concretes for lining heating plant; the upgrading of heating plant, and the
development of energy-saving technologies and equipment; also the use of the latest gas-cleaning and dust-trapping components,
and also burners in heating ovens and thermal plant.

A description is given of the activities of the TESKA
Scientific Corporation, which is concerned with im
proving the thermal aspect of gas furnaces by means of the TESKA
heating technology on the basis of GSS
burners. A TESKA
heating technology has been developed by the organization and is based on forced distri
bution of the heat flows to the heated material. However, experience at various organizations has shown that
technology can improve the quality of the heated material substantially, while raising the pro
ductivity of the plant and increasing the working life, while reducing the specific consumption of gas and lim
iting harmful discharges.
Scientific Corporation for more than
17 years has been concerned with improving the heat operations
of gas-fired furnaces. The products include high-speed auto
matic GSS burners of thermal power ranging from 100 kW
to 45 MW (15 standard sizes) [1, 2] (Fig. 1) and a unique
technology for intensive radiation jet heating termed
. The TESKA
technology enables one to intensify
the thermal operations in an industrial oven by optimizing
the heat and mass transfers on heating materials. The
technology has a principle based on forced distri
