This new edition represents not only the most recent level of development using organic media, but also the status of design regulations which affect the design, planning, construction, and operation of plants of this type. It is the most up-to-datetreatment of this technique which permits transferring and regulating heat up to and beyond 300°C almost without increase in pressure.
The guide covers in great depth heat transfer media, design of heat transfer plants, fundamentals of heat and flow, heaters, plant components, heat consumers, measuring and control techniques, installation specifications, operation of heat transfer plants, and examples of actual heat transfer plants.
A voluminous Appendix gives detailed properties of organic heat carriers, such as: organic liquids having a mineral oil or a synthetic base, organic media that can operate in either a liquid or vapor state, and special oils.
