Formulas within Process Heating
Being an engineer within process
heating, certain formulas are use more than others. AB&CO have collected
these formulas in one pdffile. These formulas also appear on AB&CO
new desk covers (see more in above link).
Conversion
of Units
SI, metric, US and UK units.
AB&CO offers this survey as a pdffile. These tables also appear
on AB&CO new desk covers (see more in above link).
Heat Exchanger Inquiry (printout)  GENERAL
Receive an offer for AB&CO Heat Exchangers using one of the above two
alternatives (not condensing or evaporating type e.g. steam heaters).
Heat Exchanger Inquiry (printout)  STEAM
only
Receive an offer for steam operated AB&CO Heaters for process air, gases
and liquids using one of the above two alternatives.
Specific Boiler & Heater Technical
Literature
Thermal Fluid versus Saturated Steam
When to use thermal oil instead of steam for process heating. An important
question that can save you or cost you a fortune depending on how you
choose. Read this to be better making the right decision.
Steam
Generator versus Steam Boiler Saturated stream in amount up to 2  3 tons per hour can be made on a
conventional steam boiler or using a steam generator. The features and
application fields are not the same for the two steam producing types. Get
familiar with the differences and make an optimum choice.

Boiler & Heater
Calculations  GENERAL
Steam boilers, electrical
boilers, steam generators, thermal fluid heaters, hot water heaters. make your own
calculations on the necessary size. Include safeties, and find determine the heat balance
with flow, temperature and even electrical data. Calculate the heater of a flowing fluid,
or alternatively a fluid heated up in a tank during a certain time.
Heat Exchanger Calculations
Plate Heat Exchangers, Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers and Coiltype Heat
Exchanger. The first general calculation sheet for the most common heat exchangers.
This
is only a guidance to a general layout giving approximate sizes. The calculation sheet
must not be considered as a fullproof heat exchanger program.
