This 2nd Edition of Coulson & Richardson's classic Chemical Engineering text provides a complete update and revision of Volume 6: An Introduction to Design. It provides a revised and updated introduction to the methodology and procedures for process design and process equipment selection and design for the chemical process and allied industries. It includes material on flow sheeting, piping and instrumentation, mechanical design of equipment, costing and project evaluation, safety and loss prevention. The material on safety and loss prevention and environmental protection has been revised to cover current procedures and legislation. Process integration and the use of heat pumps has been included in the chapter on energy utilisation. Additional material has been added on heat transfer equipment; agitated vessels are now covered and the discussion of fired heaters and plate heat exchangers extended. The appendices have been extended to include a computer program for energy balances, illustrations of equipment specification sheets and heat exchanger tube layout diagrams.
This 2nd Edition will continue to provide undergraduate students of chemical engineering, chemical engineers in industry and chemists and mechanical engineers, who have to tackle problems arising in the process industries, with a valuable text on how a complete process is designed and how it must be fitted into the environment.
For students on undergraduate courses in chemical engineering as well as graduates of other disciplines who are working in the chemical and process industries.

Ray Sinnott's varied career, mainly in design and development, began with several major companies including Dupont and John Brown. The main areas covered within these appointments were: Gas Production and Distribution, Nuclear Energy, Elastomers and Textile fibres.
After his career in industry he joined the Chemical Engineering Department, University of Wales Swansea in 1970, specialising in teaching process and plant design, and other engineering practice subjects.
The first edition of Chemical Engineering Design (Coulson and Richardson’s Vol 6) was published in 1983. Subsequent editions have been published at approximately 5 year intervals.
Ray Sinnott retired from full time teaching in 1995 but has maintained close contact with the engineering profession.
Previously of the University of Wales, Swansea, UK
