The Handbook of Thermoprocessing Technologies provides a detailed overview of the entire thermoprocessing sector, structured on practical criteria, and will be of particular assistance to manufacturers and users of thermoprocessing equipment.

In Europe thermoprocessing is the third largest enerview of the entire thermoprocessing sector, structured on practical criteria, and will be of particular assistance to manufacturers and users of thermoprocessing equipment.

ergy consumption sector with a very diversified and complex structure. Therefore it is split into a large number of subdivisions, each having a high importance for the industrial economy. Accordingly we find the application know-how for the design and the execution of respective equipment represented by a multitude of small but very specialized companies and their experts.

The second edition is based on the contribution of many highly experienced engineers working in this field. The book’s main intention is the presentation of practical thermal processing for the improvement of materials and parts in industrial application. Additionally it offers a summary of respective thermal and material science fundamentals. Further it covers the basic fuel-related and electrical engineering knowledge and design aspects, components and safety requirements for the necessary heating installations.
