Really two handbooks in one: Part I covers thermal processing equipment involved in the manufacture of products from metals and other materials of construction Part II covers thermal processing technology involved primarily in the production of materials of construction used by manufacturers. In Part I, the focus is on heating and heat treating equipment, ovens, and low temperature furnaces, plus related subjects (including furnace components, auxiliary equipment, and heat resistant alloys for furnace parts and fixtures). Practical guidelines will help you evaluate, select, apply and operate this equipment. In addition, representative suppliers of each type of equipment are listed at the end of each section, and complete address and phone information are located at the end of the book. The premise of Part II is that the knowledge of both thermal processing technology and foundry technology is critical to the manufacturers of finished products. Apply this know-how to select and apply raw material - a key to survival in these days of global price/quality competition.
Part I Contents: Heating and Heating Furnaces (31 types, including kilns and lehrs) Ovens and Low Temperature Furnaces (batch ovens, continuous ovens, oven heating systems, oven recirculating and exhaust system, different types of processing ovens, more) Electric Heating Equipment (induction furnaces, resistant heated furnaces, conductive resistance heat furnaces and more) Furnace Components and Auxiliary Equipment (equipment for combustion, fuel burning, auxiliary combustion, radiation heating, instrumentation and control, safety control for furnaces, energy recovery systems, material handling and furnace charging, continuous handling systems). Part II Contents: Process Furnaces and Kilns (23 types of equipment, including coke ovens, iron blast furnaces, electric smelting and refining furnaces, copper smelting furnaces, roasters and kilns) Melting, Refining and Holding Furnaces (reverberatory furnaces, pneumatic steelmaking furnaces, electric arc melting holding furnaces, electric induction furnaces, secondary steelmaking systems, and other processes).
