The newly released 41st edition of Steam/its generation and use, a book published by The Babcock & Wilcox Company, details advances in the production of steam and the utilization of all types of fuels. This edition has been thoroughly updated and revised including completely rewritten sections on environmental protection, emissions control, and advanced steam generator designs for the 21st century.

Steam is the longest continuously published engineering text of its kind in the world. The first edition of this book appeared in 1875, not long after an engineer named Stephen Wilcox, Jr., applied his knowledge of water circulation theory to perfecting a new and safe boiler concept. Today, B&W is an internationally acknowledged leader in all aspects of steam generation, from fundamentals and research, to engineering and manufacturing, service and construction, and protecting the environment, and our knowledge is shared through the publication of Steam.

BONUS: A completely searchable CD version of Steam:41 is included in every copy.

This reference authority for the steam generation industry contains nine sections (more than 1,100 pages), described below, and is thoroughly indexed.
