Industrial pneumatics handbook (SRB48) By: SMEITS
The handbook is intended for professionals who deal with the problems related to the application, use, design, and modernisation of the existing pneumatic components, equipment, units, and systems as well as their maintenance. This is the first edition of this kind of a handbook in this country and we expect that it will arouse the interest of the professional technical community. In case of comments and suggestions, the author and the publisher will be glad to take them into consideration when preparing the new edition.
In air- conditioning systems, each of the installed subsystems directly affects the efficiency and quality of the air-conditioning system as a whole. If we could single out the part with the biggest influence, it would certainly be the network of channels for air supply and distribution. That is why there is a rule that no air-conditioning system is better than its air distribution.
This book is intended for mechanical engineers dealing with heating, refrigeration and air-conditioning, power engineering, and process engineering. At the same time it is a handbook for technologists-designers of chemical and food processing and technological processes. It was primarily written for practical needs with a comprehensive description of the state of engineering in the field of calculations and construction of heat exchangers.
Air-conditioning (SRB34) By: SMEITS
The content and topics that would encompass the relevant results in the field of air-conditioning with necessary comprehensive theoretical explanations have been expanded to that extent that one supplement to this publication would not be sufficient to provide readers with everything that is needed nowadays, including the dynamics of thermal behaviour of buildings and HVAC systems - determination, by measurements and dynamic simulations, of energy efficiency of buildings that determine the dynamics of heating or air-conditioning demands by their construction and built-in materials; partial loads and energy efficiency of components, sub-systems and systems; new systems of energy supply, co-generation and tri-generation systems using renewable energy sources; sustainable energy supply systems, artificial intelligence in management, intelligent and green buildings, etc.
Refrigeration units and systems. Installation, commissioning, maintenance, and repairs (SRB33) By: SMEITS
Having in mind the importance of correct, efficient, and environmentally-friendly operation of units and systems in maintaining the achieved technological standard, especially at the time of energy and economic crisis, every written publication that helps regular and optimal use and utilization of refrigeration equipment will also be useful to those who start practising this business as well as those who are already involved in this business. The author wrote this book for a long time with a wish to provide readers with information and data that would help them in installation, commissioning, maintenance, and repairs of refrigeration units and systems. Readers or those for whom this book is intended will assess whether the author accomplished what he wanted and to what extent.
Drying and dryers (SRB08) By: SMEITS
Drying is a non-stationary thermodynamical (physical-chemical) and complex technological process, which must ensure preservation of material quality indicators, but also their improvement in many cases. Drying is one of the most important stages in different production processes. Intensive application and development of drying processes also resulted in the development and existence of independent scientific disciplines, such as drying theory and drying technology. The study of moist air properties is necessary for understanding the essence of the drying process, because the most widely used are the drying plants with coupled processes of the transfer of heat and matter between air and material being dried.
This book is a modest contribution to the literature from the field of alternative sources and the result of a wish to provide a reader with more comprehensive information on possibilities to obtain energy in a cost-effective and efficient way. The writer of this book as well as true experts in heat pumps do not claim that heat pumps are solutions in every case, but rather that heat pumps represent a possibility that should be analysed from the economic point of view wherever and wherever their application is technically justified.
The publisher and the editor of this collection approached its preparation wishing to extract from many important national and international standards those related to several unavoidable segments of power engineering, such as marking/labelling of conductors and cables, their construction, ropes for overhead ducts, or calculation of short circuit current.
