Comprehensively describes the equipment used in process steam systems, good operational and maintenance practices, and techniques used to troubleshoot system problems

Steam system design is not taught in many universities and with experienced professionals retiring there is a significant void growing that is not being filled by the new engineers. Most boiler operators have a myriad of other responsibilities and only visit the boiler room when an alarm forces them to investigate. Consequently, most engineers tasked with designing or operating a steam system rely heavily on the steam equipment manufactures to help them figure it out. Although there is a lot of good individual equipment guidance available today, without an understanding of the steam system function as a whole, it is very easy to end up with a poorly designed or performing system.

Process Steam Systems: A Practical Guide for Operators, Maintainers and Designers provides a simple but comprehensive collection of steam design and operational good practices. It discusses good engineering and operational practices with emphasis on what happens inside the steam system equipment at any location in the steam cycle.

Topics featured in Process Steam Systems include:

  • Steam Formation, Storage and Condensation
  • Steam Quality
  • Boiler Room Considerations
  • Steam Delivery System
  • Condensate Recovery System
  • Steam System Applications
  • Steam System Efficiency
  • Start up, Shut down, Inspection and Maintenance

The book is written with a system approach and looks at each part of the steam system individually with many examples of how to size and select the right equipment for a variety of applications. In addition to engineering principles, the text discusses good operations, maintenance, troubleshooting and commissioning practices of the entire steam system. Process Steam Systems provides a text for learning and a reference guide for operators, maintainers and engineers.
