This work is intended to provide support for the clean and efficient heating of industrial furnaces.
The initial chapters of the Handbook of Burner Technology for Industrial Furnaces, Second Edition deal with the indispensable theoretical principles of combustion theory, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Only those aspects that are of importance for burner technology are examined. The succeeding chapters then proceed on to burner technology as such, and focus on combustion-system concepts, analyze pollutant generation and reduction, and discuss the recovery of heat for use in combustion-air preheating, the most important provision for the enhancement of energy-efficiency. This compact-format book, with its plethora of information, is an indispensable reference source for all persons who are professionally involved in any way at all with the heating and combustion-systems of industrial furnaces.
