Managing Steam: Volume 1 â€” Best Practices for Producing and Using Steam
Volume one of this two-part PDF guidebook series contains tutorial-style articles, originally published in Chemical Engineering.
Included are recommendations on how to produce and use steam in the most cost and energy efficient way. Several articles focus on traditional boiler-based systems for producing steam, and best practices for generating steam using integrated cogeneration facilities (which produce both steam and power for the end user).
Guidance is provided on properly interpreting and using ASME pressure vessel code and ASME boiler code to guide each engineers decision making. Also discussed are the requirements and challenges of systems that capture waste heat from fluegas as a key energy source to produce steam for use onsite. Numerous articles cover key operational challenges related to managing steam traps, water hammer and corrosion.
Delivered in a PDF format. 102 pages.
