"Conservative estimates suggest that if all steam producing and using equipment in the United States were operated efficiently, an immediate reduction in energy consumption of 25% would be possible," according to James Jackson, who has spent nearly four decades in the field of steam production. "Rising costs of fuel and the need for this country to become as energy independent as possible demand that these savings be achieved," he writes. To foster more efficient energy conversion and to fill a gap in the technical literature on steam production and utilization, Mr. Jackson offers this comprehensive, easy-to-understand, and practical volume. It will surely find a ready, welcoming audience among those already involved in steam boiler applications, those entering the field, and' those whose business profitability depends upon a reliable and economical supply of steam. The broad scope of STEAM BOILER OPERATION covers both large- and small-scale systems. Its chapters provide a brief, interesting history of steam, followed by in-depth coverage of such essential topics as temperature and the effects of heat, fuels, boilers, boiler accessory equipment, boiler auxiliary equipment, steam trapping, water treatment, key instruments and controls, effective management of power plant operations, and important instruction on boiler room safety. Also included are useful formulae tables and units of measurement, conversion tables, and a comprehensive glossary of terms.
