Industrial Boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generatorsby V. Ganapathy
Synopses & Reviews
Filled with over 225 boiler/HRSG operation and design problems, this book covers steam generators and related systems used in process plants, refineries, chemical plants, electrical utilities, and other industrial settings. Emphasizing the thermal engineering aspects, the author provides information on the design and performance of steam generators and heat recovery boilers. He helps those involved in development understand which questions to ask when selecting a steam generator for their project. The book 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.
Book News Annotation:
Ganapathy (an engineer of heat recovery and other steam generators for ABCO Industries, Texas) presents a book on steam generators and related systems that are used in process plants, refineries, chemical plants, electrical utilities, and other industrial settings. He emphasizes the thermal engineering aspects of the topic, attempting to provide information on design and performance aspects of steam generators and heat recovery boilers so that those involved in the early stages of development of a steam plant projects will be able to ask the right questions for selecting the right steam generator for the project. Major topics discussed include recent trends in power generation systems and the calculations related combustion, boiler efficiency, boiler circulation, and heat transfer. A final chapter explores the performance of pumps, fans, and turbines.
