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 book provides the information on boilers and the associated equipment, as used at sea, required by marine engineers taking the Steam Paper, Class Two, for the Department of Transport's Certificate of Competency for Marine Engineer Officers. Much of the information is given in the form of comprehensive answers to typical examination questions, with supporting diagrams that help the reader to understand and remember important machinery details. In this new edition the book has been updated throughout with new material on welded boilers, various types of water tube boiler, rotary air heater, water level alarm, consolidated type safety valve, hydraulic testing and various aspects of survey, maintenance and operational problems.

Marine Steam Boilers: Fourth Edition deals with the involved concepts, parts and construction, usage and maintenance, and the future direction of steam boilers. The book covers topics such as the history of steam boilers; theoretical development of steam boilers; and the materials and methods used in their construction. Also covered are the types of boilers - the tank-type boiler, which includes horizontal and vertical boilers; water tube boilers such as the Foster Wheeler boiler, Babcock & Wilcox boilers, and combustion engineering boilers; and dual-fired boilers. The text is recommended for marine engineers who would like to know more about boilers, its different types and the advantages of each, and their operation.
