BIH attends API conference, Two delegates from BIH UK have recently returned from a successful API conference in Houston.

Topics discussed at this year’s API committee meeting were a potential revision of API 530 or API 560 to add vertical flux profile estimates as well as the revised issue of API 560 late in 2019 to include radical changes on burner spacings. As a distraction for the daily rounds of technical discussions BIH hosted a very successful dinner for 20 delegates. The API committee meets twice per year to review and revise the relevant API standard (API 560) for Fired heaters. We look forward to participating in the next meeting due to take place in October.
