Revised and updated, the most comprehensive single reference on industrial furnaces available.
Furnaces sit at the core of all branches of manufacture and industry, so it is vital that these are designed and operated safely and efficiently. This reference provides all of the furnace theory needed to ensure that this can be executed successfully on an industrial scale.
- Up-to-date and comprehensive reference encompassing not only best practice of operation but the essential elements of furnace theory and design, essential to anyone working with furnaces, ovens and combustion-based systems.
- More case studies, more worked examples.
- New material in this second edition includes further application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), with additional content on flames and burners, costs, efficiencies and future trends.
Industrial and Process Furnaces provides a comprehensive reference to all aspects of furnace operation and design, with coverage of key topics that plant and process engineers and operators need to understand, including the combustion process and its control, furnace fuels, efficiency, burner design and selection, aerodynamics, heat release profiles, furnace atmosphere, safety and emissions.
* Helps to understand complex heat and mass transfer and combustion problems
* Outlines the key elements of furnace theory for optimum design
* Shows how to achieve best possible furnace operation
* Practical, stepped approach breaks topics down to their constituent parts for clarity and easier solution
* Practical examples further assist in the analysis of real-world problems
Developed by authors with experience of a wide range of industrial applications, this book is written for chemical and process engineers, mechanical, design and combustion engineers and students. It is ideal for both task-based problem solving and more detailed analysis work.
