Basic Science and Practice of Gas
This manual is dedicated to educating the reader in the basic principles underlying the practical and theoretical aspects of gas service technology and complements the other two books in the series. From the basics of combustion the book takes the reader through burners, pressure and flow, transfer of heat and controls. In addition materials and processes, electrical aspects, metering and measuring devices are comprehensively covered. Because operatives working in the Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) sector must now be certified under the Accreditation and Certification Scheme (ACS) in the same way as Natural Gas operatives, both Natural Gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas are covered.
