    Despite the length of time it has been around, its importance, and vast amounts of research, combustion is still far from being completely understood. Issues regarding the environment, cost, and fuel consumption add further complexity, particularly in the process and power generation industries. Dedicated to advancing the art and science of industrial combustion, The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook, Second Edition: Volume 2 – Design and Operations serves as a field manual for operators, engineers, and managers working in design and operations.

    Under the leadership of Charles E. Baukal, Jr., top engineers and technologists from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion examine equipment design and operations in the context of the process and power generation industries. Coverage includes testing, installation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. This second volume features color illustrations and photographs throughout, and extensive appendices contain property data relevant to industrial combustion equipment and processes.

    What’s New in This Edition

    • Expanded to three volumes, with Volume 2 focusing on equipment design and operations
    • Extensive updates and revisions throughout, reflecting new standards, energy sources, processes, and conservation concerns
    • New material on combustion diagnostics and testing
    • Updated material on safety and combustion controls
    • New material on metallurgy, refractories, and blowers
