Kraft Recovery Boilers, Third Edition


Authors: T.N. Adams, W.J. Frederick, T.M Grace, M. Hupa, A.K Jones, W. B. A. Sharp, D. Singbeil, H. Tran


The Kraft Recovery Boilers – 3rd Edition is the third in a series of textbooks on kraft recovery boilers. Like the previous two editions published over two decades ago, this book is sponsored by the Recovery Boiler Program R&D Subcommittee of the American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) and published by TAPPI Press. 

The book is coauthored by eight experts, who have served as instructors of the Kraft Recovery Course for many years. It contains sixteen chapters, covering various aspects of recovery boiler technology, such as:

  - Chemical Principles
  - Black Liquor Properties
  - Sprays and Combustion/Char Bed characteristics

It also covers a wide range of operating issues including:

  - Fouling and Plugging
  - Sootblowing
  - Corrosion and cracking
  - Particulate and Gas Emissions
  - Safety
  - Equipment Design and Control Principles
  - Material and Energy Balances

It is an excellent book for the course participants to have, not only to follow the lectures during the course, but also to use as a good reference source in their work after the course.

Guidelines for Safe Assessment and Operation of Yankee Dryers


A project of the Yankee Dryer Safety & Reliability Subcommittee


This publication was developed for the purpose of providing suggested guidelines to aid in the safe operation and management of Yankee dryers. It is believed that these guidelines will satisfy existing ASME Code and more jurisdictional requirements and will provide documentation of what is understood to be “good engineering and operational practice” based upon accumulated paper industry experience. These guidelines do not supersede dryer manufacturers’ operations manuals and do not purport to cover all possible applicable regulatory requirements.

Guidelines covered include:

  • Inspection
  • Operating & Reliability
  • Maintenance and Repair
  • Personnel Protection
