Provides orderly, systematic coverage of industrial burner design and applications Addresses a wide range of burner types, including high velocity, regenerative, natural draft, porous radiant, radiant tube, and radiant wall burners Discusses a variety of fuel compositions Examines burner noise, controls, and physical modeling—topics not adequately treated in any other industrial combustion reference
Rapid development in the field precipitated by the increased demand for clean burner systems has made the Industrial Burners Handbook into the field’s go-to resource. With this resource, bestselling author, editor, and combustion expert Charles Baukal, Jr. has put together a comprehensive reference dedicated to the design and applications of industrial burners. In addition to a solid introduction to combustion and burner fundamentals, an outstanding panel of contributing authors address all major burner types and explore a range of topics never before adequately covered in a handbook, including noise, burner controls, and physical modeling.
