This book was written specifically for boiler plant operators and supervisors who want to learn how to lower plant operating costs, as well as how to operate plants of all types and sizes more wisely. This newly revised edition provides guidelines for HRSGs, combined cycle systems, and environmental effects of boiler operation. Also included is a new chapter on refrigeration systems which addresses the environmental effects of inadvertent and intentional discharges of refrigerants. Going beyond the basics of "keeping the pressure up," the author explains in clear terms how to set effective priorities to assure optimum plant operation, including safety, continuity of operation, damage prevention, managing environmental impact, training replacement plant operators, logging and preserving historical data, and operating the plant economically.
Wenn der Traumjob zum Albtraum wird ... Mike Ford hat seine kriminelle Jugend hinter sich gelassen und es bis nach Harvard geschafft. Neben dem Jurastudium arbeitet er jede freie Minute in einer Bar, um seinen Schuldenberg abzutragen. Bis ihn sein Dozent Henry Davies mit viel Geld in seine Beraterfirma lockt: Mikes neuer Boss ist ein Haifisch im politischen Becken von Washington. Zu seinen Klienten gehören die 500 mächtigsten Männer des Landes, und sein Geschäftsmodell besteht darin, jede Leiche im Keller dieser Männer zu kennen, um sie gefügig zu machen und ihren Einfluss zu nutzen. Jede Methode ist ihm recht, und Mike ist sein Mann fürs Grobe. Als der die Machenschaften durchschaut, steckt er schon bis zum Hals im tödlichen Spiel um Macht und Geld. Sein einziger Ausweg besteht darin, Davies’ dunkle Geheimnisse aufzudecken und ihn mit den eigenen Waffen zu schlagen. Ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit beginnt, und um den zu gewinnen, muss Mike lügen, stehlen, betrügen und vielleicht sogar töten.
