Description

Chemical Plant and Its Operation (Including Safety and Health Aspects), Second SI Edition describes chemical plant operations from a practical standpoint. This book is divided into eight chapters. Chapter 1 describes the materials used in the construction of a chemical plant. The second chapter explains the storage and conveyance of solids, liquids, and gases from raw materials to finished products. Chapter 3 reviews the common items of equipment that form a complete working unit of a plant. The three classifications of chemical operations—techniques of operation, specialized operations, and unit operations are described in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 discusses the measurement of variable quantities, while Chapter 6 focuses on the maintenance of a chemical plant. The last chapters deal with the services and safety aspects of chemical operations. This edition is designed to meet the needs of chemical operatives who are preparing for the examinations for the ordinary and advanced certificates in chemical plant operation, including those taking chemical technician courses.
