Description

From Scope of Report: "The findings of the preliminary survey are first briefly presented; these are followed by a general description of the furnaces and fuels investigated. A chapter follows on each of the four conditions of service studied: (1) The temperature and composition of the furnace gases, (2) the velocity of the furnace gases, (3) the temperature of the refractories, and (4) the composition and characteristics of boiler-furnace slags. In each chapter the significance of the condition of service, the factors that govern it, the method of investigation, representative data from the installations, and a comparative summary are given."
