    A very useful reference

    This book is a very practical resource. It includes many easy to use calculations and effectively explains the theory behind the design and performance of all types of boilers, superheaters and economizers including specialty boilers like HRSG's. This book will be helpful to designers, plant engineers and operators involved in power projects, cogeneration facilities or plant utilities.
