Interest in heat engineering has increased again in a time in which, on the one hand, industrial-furnace technology is booming and, on the other hand, costs for gaseous fuels and electrical energy are rising rapidly. In addition, the rational utilization of energy in heat-processing technology is set to attain an ever more central significance due, not least of all, to current controversies on the subject of CO2 emissions. This is, of course, the reasoning behind specialist publications dealing with the subject of industrial heat engineering and heat-processing technology.

The Pocket Manual of Heat Processing meets these needs. The work examines from a practical viewpoint the current state of the technological art and all relevant fundamental principles of heat transfer, fluid mechanics and combustion systems. Subsequent chapters deal with burners for industrial furnaces and the energy balances of thermal systems. Other focuses include electrothermal processes and the thermochemical treatment of materials. The reader is provided with a detailed overview of all relevant principles, calculations, terms and processes in industrial heat engineering, and thus with important aids for his or her daily work.

This compact-format book, with its plethora of information, is an indispensable reference for all those involved in any way at all with thermal processing technology and industrial-furnace engineering and operation. Selected topics covered: Heat transfer; Fluid mechanics; Gaseous fuels; Combustion; Burner technology; Energy balance in industrial furnaces; Electrothermal processes; Thermochemical treatment, shielding-gas systems; etc.
