The 2nd, fully revised and expanded edition of the "Handbook of Heat Processing" is now available, with four-colour illustrations.
In the present time, with industrial furnace technology booming, on the one hand, and the costs of gaseous fuels and electrical energy rising steeply, on the other, interest in heat-processing technology has again increased.
The rational use of energy in thermoprocessing technology is also of ever more crucial importance, as a result, not least of all, of CO2-emissions legislation.
This, of course, provides the background to the necessity for technical works covering the topic of industrial thermal technology and thermoprocessing.

The "Handbook of Heat Processing" fully meets these needs, examining the current state-of-the-art and all relevant fundamentals in an extremely practically orientated manner.

The reader is given a detailed overview of all relevant factors, calculations, terms and processes used in industrial heat technology, and therefore important tips for his or her daily work.
This compact-format handbook, with its abundance of useful information, is an indispensable reference work for all those who in any way work or come into contact with thermoprocessing technology and the design, construction and/or operation of industrial furnaces.


  • General information
  • Heat transfer
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Gaseous fuels
  • Combustion, Burners
