Boiler Operator’s Handbook, Third Edition By Carl Bozzuto
With the increased interest in climate impacts, sustainability, and efficiency more responsibility is being place on boiler operators to help improve
performance and reduce emissions. This 3rd edition of the Boiler Operators Handbook is intended to help such operators in the quest for improved
operability and performance of their boilers and their plants. The theme of this book is to “operate wisely”. The goal is to instill not only “know how” but
“know why”. The main details have been provided by the original author, Mr. Ken Heselton. This updated version has been somewhat expanded to
include a wider range of examples and some of the more recent environmental requirements.
To illustrate these points, topics include multi boiler operations, understanding the plant load, maintenance issues, and controls. Every plant is different.
However, it is hoped that with the information provided in this book, the wise operator will be able to address the various unique issues posed by the
specific plant and provide time solutions to meet the present day requirements.
