Some organizations represent an entire industry, while others restrict their scope to only a segment of it. Every aspect of heating, ventilating, and air conditioning is covered by one or more of these professional organizations. Anyone, member or not, can write to these professional organizations for information or assistance. Most seem very willing to comply with any reasonable request. The only difficulty that may be encountered is determining the current name of the particular organization and obtaining its address.

Moisture. It may be either saturated or superheated. Finally, superheated steam is steam having a temperature higher than that corresponding to its pressure. The various changes that take place in the making of steam are known as vaporization and are shown in Figure 2-11. For the sake of illustration, only one bubble is shown in each receptacle. In actuality there is a continuous procession upward of a great multiplicity of bubbles. The amount of heat necessary to cause the generation of steam is the sum of the sensible heat, the internal latent heat, and the external latent heat.

Another important factor to consider when dealing with steam is the boiling point of liquids. 3 lb. 74 in. 3 lb. 74 in. 7 lb. abs. 95 lb. abs. 600 lb. abs. 12 Variation of the boiling point when pressure changes. temperature at which a liquid begins to boil (Figure 2-12), and it depends upon both the pressure and the nature of the liquid. 7 psi. The relationship between boiling point and pressure is such that there is a definite temperature or boiling point corresponding to each value of pressure.
