Abstract These directives apply to boilers equipped with black-liquor recovery furnaces. Reference to Finnish legislation concerning flammable liquids and corrosion protection is followed by data on the combustion properties of black liquor and the physical prerequisites for a furnace explosion. Rules are given for the safe handling of black liquor, design and construction of burners, instrumentation, safety devices (automatic controls, high-speed drainage system, etc.), starting up and operation, dealing with emergencies and leaks, combustion methods, operating instructions and periodical inspections of boiler tubes. CIS has only the Swedish-language version.
