Low Pressure Boilers provides information on the safe and efficient operation of low pressure steam boilers and related equipment, hot water boilers, and cooling systems. The textbook can be used as a study guide for boiler operator licensing, an introduction to stationary engineering, or a reference book for upgrading skills. This new edition has been enhanced with updated coverage of the new ASME symbol stamps, integrated boiler controls, code requirements for bottom blowdown, feedwater regulators, emissions regulations and New Source Performance Standards, variable-speed drives, diaphragm draft gauges, water treatment programs and solubilizing water treatments, and Canadian licensing. Energy efficiency and environmental issues are emphasized throughout.

This book was written specifically for boiler plant operators and supervisors who want to learn how to lower plant operating costs, as well as how to operate plants of all types and sizes more wisely. This newly revised edition provides guidelines for HRSGs, combined cycle systems, and environmental effects of boiler operation. Also included is a new chapter on refrigeration systems which addresses the environmental effects of inadvertent and intentional discharges of refrigerants. Going beyond the basics of "keeping the pressure up," the author explains in clear terms how to set effective priorities to assure optimum plant operation, including safety, continuity of operation, damage prevention, managing environmental impact, training replacement plant operators, logging and preserving historical data, and operating the plant economically.

This volume contains two additional features which enhance the value of Modern Power Station Practice as a whole: a cumulative subject index and a detailed list of tables of contents for the entire work. The cumulative index provides access to the vast body of information presented in the set, and also indicates at a glance the breadth and depth of the treatment through the use of inclusive page ranges for major topics. In order to allow the reader the greatest flexibility in using the index there are many cross-references. The entries themselves are qualified by up to two descriptive subheadings to allow the most detailed coverage possible of the subject matter. The reproduction of the tables of contents for each volume also provides an overview of the organisation of the individual volumes.
