NOTE1:

2roperly stated3 40orrected .as E/it Temp4 is as5measured temperature3 and includes the temperature5reducin" e6ect of air heater lea!a"e. 47ncorrected .as E/it
Temp4 is the same temperature3 but corrected to a 4No ea!a"e4 condi\$on. This seemin"ly bac!wards nomenclature came about in the early days of boiler desi"n3 when
the desi"ners would calculate air heater heat transfer and then had to 4correct4 the resul\$n" temperature calcula\$on to account for lea!a"e.
