Developed to compliment safety training, the latest edition of Safe Furnace and Boiler Firing is the perfect reference tool and training aid for increasing operators’ awareness of the hazards in furnace and boiler firing.
This publication starts out by describing how furnaces and boilers work, their properties and the potential hazards associated with their use, before giving general rules and procedures for safe firing. Based on examples of real-life accidents, the potential threats are highlighted and the possible causes are explained, enabling operators to recognise any warning signs, before accidents occur. The book concludes with a self-test section allowing readers to test their understanding of the information presented.
This is the latest edition available, featuring new material and case studies related to maintenance, burner management systems and shutdowns.
