The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook : Volume 2 - Design and Operations Hardback

Edited by Charles E., Jr. Baukal

Part of the Industrial Combustion series


Despite the length of time it has been around, its importance, and vast amounts of research, combustion is still far from being completely understood.

Issues regarding the environment, cost, and fuel consumption add further complexity, particularly in the process and power generation industries.

Dedicated to advancing the art and science of industrial combustion, The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook, Second Edition: Volume 2 - Design and Operations serves as a field manual for operators, engineers, and managers working in design and operations.

Under the leadership of Charles E. Baukal, Jr., top engineers and technologists from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion examine equipment design and operations in the context of the process and power generation industries.

Coverage includes testing, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting.

This second volume features color illustrations and photographs throughout, and extensive appendices contain property data relevant to industrial combustion equipment and processes. What's New in This EditionExpanded to three volumes, with Volume 2 focusing on equipment design and operationsExtensive updates and revisions throughout, reflecting new standards, energy sources, processes, and conservation concernsNew material on combustion diagnostics and testingUpdated material on safety and combustion controlsNew material on metallurgy, refractories, and blowersExpanded coverage of burners, flares, and thermal oxidizers, including testing, operations, and troubleshootingMore property data useful for the design and operation of combustion equipmentThe second of three volumes in the new, expanded edition of the bestselling handbook, this volume helps you broaden your understanding of industrial combustion design and operations to better meet the challenges of this field.
