The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook : Volume 3 - Applications 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 3 - Applications offers comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of equipment used in the process and power generation industries. Under the leadership of Charles E. Baukal, Jr., top engineers and technologists from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion examine industry applications such as process burners, boiler burners, process flares, thermal oxidizers, and vapor control.

This volume builds on the concepts covered in the first two volumes and shows how they are used in combustion applications.

The book also features a wealth of color illustrations, photographs, and tables throughout. What's New in This EditionExpanded to three volumes, with Volume 3 focusing on important industry applicationsExtensive updates and revisions throughout, reflecting new standards, energy sources, processes, and conservation concernsExpanded coverage of flares and new coverage of biogas flares and flare gas recoveryInformation on vapor combustorsDiscussion of pollution control equipmentExpanded coverage of commercial and utility boiler burnersChapters on process and air heatersMore material on thermal oxidizersA new chapter on marine and offshore applicationsThe third of three volumes in the new, expanded edition of the bestselling handbook, this volume helps you broaden your knowledge of industrial combustion applications to better meet the challenges of this field.
