Steam and Hot Water Primer

by Chris Langley, Andrew Sacks

For the first time, novice and seasoned boiler personnel alike have a resource designed just for them.

Steam and Hot Water Primer is a comprehensive guide to boiler operation and stationary engineering. Its purpose is to provide a fundamental understanding of boiler operation and maintenance for beginners, to prepare prospective licensing candidates for the boiler license exam, and to serve as a “go-to” reference guide for operations and maintenance personnel.

With coverage of topics that other, similar books avoid – like maintenance and troubleshooting – the authors have created an “all-in-one” resource that can be used throughout the stages of a boiler operator’s career and that will also develop highly knowledgeable, highly skilled operators, prepared and ready for the 21st century.

  • Coverage of both High and Low pressure training sets this book apart from similar texts, which typically hone in on one or the other
  • Clear, straightforward writing style facilitates comprehension and engages readers
  • Practical examples prepare readers for situations they are likely to face in the real world
  • In-depth appendices include steam tables and charts, conversions, gravity tables, bolt patterns and sizes for common flanges, and much more
