Boilers, Evaporators, and Condensersby Sadik Kakag
Synopses & Reviews
This up-to-date reference covers the thermal design, operation and maintenance of the three major components in industrial heating and air conditioning systems including fossil fuel-fired boilers, waste heat boilers and air conditioning evaporators. Among the distinguishing features covered are: the numerous types of components in use and the features and relative merits of each, overviews of the major technical sections of the book, with suggested approaches to design based on industrial experience, case studies and examples of actual engineering problems, design methods and procedures based on current industrial practice in the United States, Russia, China and Europe with data charts, tables and thermal-hydraulic correlations for design included, and various approaches to design based on experience in the art of industrial process equipment design.
Book News Annotation:
Boilers, evaporators, and condensers are the three vital components of power-producing plants, process chemical industries, and heating, ventilating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems. This field guide to design, operation, and maintenance presents a real-life look at problems and technical solutions, based on current industrial practice in the US, USSR, China, and Europe. The text explicitly outlines design approaches, supplementing each with case studies and actual engineering problems.
