Industrial Boilers And Heat Recovery Steam Generators

Features recent trends in packaged boiler design and water-cooled furnaces, and explores the advantages of convective and radiant superheaters, and custom designing! Industrial Boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generators discusses the prediction and optimization of temperature profiles and steam flow in unfired, fired, single- and multiple-pressure HRSGs the optimization of fin configuration in the design of boilers, superheaters, and economizers the impact of boiler and feed water chemistry on boiler blowdown and carry over of solids high and low temperature corrosion issues and solutions in steam generators and waste heat boilers the effects of fouling, steam pressure, feed water temperature, and steam temperature on boiler and HRSG performance the performance of steam plant auxiliaries such as fans, steam turbines, and pumps the effect of flue gas recirculation, excess air, fuel, and furnace design on boiler emissions and performance Filled with over 225 boiler/HRSG operation and design problems, Industrial Boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generators is mandatory reading for mechanical, design, operating, plant, power, industrial, manufacturing, electrical, chemical, process, and heating engineers, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.

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.
