An energy conscious industrial firm automatically contributes to the preservation of our environment. Less energy consumption means less waste of irreplaceable fuels and fewer toxic emissions. It is well known that bringing good energy conservation practice to the work place not only reduces fuel costs but also reduces steam generator toxic emissions.
It follows that the less the amount of steam wasted, the less fuel is consumed by the steam plant. This book is dedicated to aid plant engineers and technicians in cost effective steam distribution and condensate systems management. This also produces less toxic waste by-products, as now required by government standards.
By practicing proven management and engineering techniques in steam and condensate transport, there will be less steam waste, less fuel consumption, and less toxic wastes. The return on investment in steam and condensate systems improvement can be considerable. This cost avoidance can often fund other needed projects.
Cost effective management of steam distribution and condensate systems saves valuable, non-replaceable fuel resources and reduces toxic wastes in our environment.From the Back Cover:
The purpose of this book is to assist plant engineers and technicians in the areas of cost-effective steam distribution and condensate systems management with the added benefit of reducing toxic waste by-products as now required by government standards. Proven management and engineering techniques in steam and condensate transport are included which will show how to reduce steam waste, fuel consumption, and toxic wastes, thus increasing return on investment in steam and condensate systems. Key topics include basic steam systems, steam and condensate system piping structure, layout excavations and encosures, system protection, thermal insulation, valves and valve drive mechanisms, controls and metering.
