It is rare to find an informative text book that has the capability of retaining a boiler operators interest, as this does. The question and answer format presents a challenge to the operating personnel that would be difficult to emualate in a conventional text book. Chattopadhyay has presented this reference book in a format that challenges the reader to broaden their knowledge.

One of the best I have read

This is the best book i've ever read on boiler. This book has been a great reference for me to pass my Steam Engineer examination. I passed the exam by only reading this book and without attending any course. Easy to understand and Chatt answers most common asked question in boiler exams and common doubt among boiler engineers. This book actually answared 90% of the questions that i have doubt in.

thank you Chatt !

Chattopadhyay, as my colleague points out, is no slavish devotee of the Imperial system of measurement. But what he does do is take the FAQs that many experts might have in relation to boilers and answer them in a way that is comprehensive and - for the expert, at least - probably quite helpful.
My own interest was in getting a slim little 85000 BTU combi with a 2 stage frost thermostat to protect against frost whilst minimising gas consumption, as well as a built-in expansion vessel for sealed system operation and an automatic bypass valve. My question? Simply, where to get one. To be fair, PC wasn't so good on this type of question, dwelling more on the mechanical elements of energy efficiency and so on. But for folk like me, there are always the search engines.
(For the record, I think an inch is about a metre and a half.)
