English translation of "Taschenbuch für Thermoprozess-Technik": This pocket manual provides a selectivesurvey of available engineering for the product range of LOIThermoprocess GmbH. Furthermore, important information material basedon specialized literature is summarized.
The pocket manual primarilyfocuses on engineering aspects. Information on process technology islimited to topics which concern all or most of all plant equipment (furnaces ) in order not to exceed the pocket manual concept.
Consequently, descriptions are limited to basic planning criteria andinformation which is needed for utilizing the data collection. Mentionof diverging regional planning criteria, such as laws and standards, isonly made if general attention is given in similar way. Data is mainlyprovided numerically in tables in order to simplify direct calculableutilization. Diagrams are only used if they improve illustration or tofeature the plant equipment (furnace) based origin of the data.
The SImeasuring units are used pragmatically. For most tables the conversionfactor is directly assigned for the area in which the Anglo-Americanlanguage prevails. The American notation is used for designation ofmagnitude of the numerical values.
