Practical Guide to idustrial boiler systems



Much time was spent in researching data in the 35-plus years of my involvement
in boiler house work. This text is a compilation of most of that data and information.
The purpose of this book is to make the day-to-day boiler house work easier
for the power engineer, the operators, and the maintenance people, by supplying
a single source for hard-to-find information.
Nontechnical people with an interest in boiler house operation include plant
management personnel, safety personnel, and supervisory personnel in government
and industry. The technical material in this book, including the spreadsheet
calculations and formulas, should be of interest to the boiler engineer, boiler
designer, boiler operator, and the power engineering student
