The popularity of the Boiler Operators Handbook has prompted the issue of this revised and completely updated edition, which examines the change of emphasis from coal-fired to oil- and gas-fired boilers. The new Boiler Operators Handbook will help the operator carry out his important work with skill and efficiency. The good management of a boiler plant should ensure the production of good quality steam in a safe and fuel-efficient manner to minimise air pollution. All these issues are emphasized throughout the new edition. The NIFES consulting group has been responsible for the training of boiler operators since 1954, and this high level of experience is combined with the very latest techlogical advances to make this new edition essential reading for the boiler operator.
