The balance of the manual consists of questions and essay type answers which provide a description and the operation of the following components: sectional header and D type boiler start-up procedure, cutting in and securing a boiler, the superheater, the steam and water drum, feed water regulator and gauges, air register, fuel oil systems (variable capacity and straight mechanical), feed water heater, pumps, general boiler operation and firefighting. Excellent sketches, pictures and diagrams are used throughout to illustrate and clarify the explanations in the text.
