For more than 55 years, this book has been used by engineers and operators involved with steam plant equipment in heat, power, and process plants. Now, extensively revised and updated, the book covers not only the principles of combustion and the basic design, construction, and operation of boilers, but includes extensive treatments of the fundamentals of power plant equipment, including pumps, reciprocating steam engines, valve-operating mechanisms, turbines, and environmental control systems. Written in clear, straightforward language, this reference also contains a wealth of manufacturer's illustrations, plus sample calculations, and examples. The new sixth edition now features: coverage of waste-to-energy plants which are critical in solving the solid-waste problem; the newest power plant technology as well as the older, traditional types of equipment; a basic understanding of efficient operation with environmental control systems that meet requirements of the Clean Air Act; and the latest technical information for individuals preparing to take the operating license examinations. The book provides up-to-date expert information on boiler types, design, and construction, combustion fuels, boiler settings, combustion equipment, heating surfaces, boiler accessories, steam turbines and auxiliaries, and auxiliary steam-plant equipment. In all, the new sixth edition aims to provide engineers and operators with what they need to acheive greater plant efficiency and safety.
