246

APPENDIX VII

stoppage breaks the seal. Frozen water lines in winter frequently
cause the superintendent to consign the plant to the tropical
regions, particularly when they occur on a cold Sunday morn-
ing. Water vapor absorbed by the flue gases reduces not
only their temperature, but also the stack draft and the
amount of heat available for the waste-heat boiler to convert
into steam.

As to the valve area required for a furnace, there is as much
diversity in practice as there is with the other portions of the
furnace. Figs. 160 and 161 are a graphical comparison of reversing
valve practice, while Table 10 shows the same data in tabular
form. The reference numbers in the table correspond with those
given in preceding chapters.
