Efficient boiler operations sourcebook
F. William Payne, Richard E. Thompson
Fairmont Press, Nov 1, 1996 - Technology & Engineering - 309 pages
Now you can use the answerbook that has helped thousands of companies slash their operating costs by eliminating wasteful inefficiencies in their boiler plants. The fully illustrated text brings you testing and flame evaluation techniques, steps for improving control of excess air flow, easy-to-follow boiler efficiency calculation methods, guidelines for optimizing boiler maintenance procedures, and a wealth of other useful details for improving combustion efficiency. You'll also find chapters covering tuning of industrial boilers, current approaches for NOx control, techniques for improving steam distribution system efficiencies, and strategies for reducing waste heat energy losses. An examination of specific boiler characteristics and components, including fuel types, firing methods and steam demands is also included.
