Furnaces sit at the core of all branches of manufacture and industry, so it is vital
that these are designed and operated safely and effi-ciently. This reference provides
all of the furnace theory needed to ensure that this can be executed successfully on
an industrial scale.
Industrial and Process Furnaces: Principles, 2nd Edition provides comprehensive
coverage of all aspects of furnace operation and design, including topics essential
for process engineers and operators to better understand furnaces. This includes:
the combustion process and its control, furnace fuels, efficiency, burner design
and selection, aerodynamics, heat release profiles, furnace atmosphere, safety
and emissions. These elements and more are brought together to illustrate how to
achieve optimum design and operation, with real-world case studies to showcase
