The Control of Boilers (2nd Edition)

File Size: 10.21 Mb

Five years have passed since the first edition of this book, and I have continued to learn as I have become older and wiser. In the third paragraph of the preface to the first edition, I implied that what I have done in this second edition was impossible. I want to eat those words.

The cartoon by Gus Shaw on the opposite page tells the story. During his work with Bailey Meter Co. (prior to Bailey Controls Co.), Gus made several great cartoons on this theme. A complete study of “The Control of Boilers” must include the “starting up” phase of the process. One of the purposes of this edition is to include some basic information on that digital phase of the operation in addition to the modulating “on-line” operation covered in the original edition.

This results in the sections and subsections covering interlocks, burner start-up and management, and the management of the start-up and operation of pulverizers and other fuelburning equipment. Along with this is the recognition of applicable safety codes of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
