Description

A facility is only as efficient and profitable as the equipment that is in it: this highly influential book is a powerful resource for chemical, process, or plant engineers who need to select, design or configures plant sucessfully and profitably. It includes updated information on design methods for all standard equipment, with an emphasis on real-world process design and performance.

Key Features

  • The comprehensive and influential guide to the selection and design of a wide range of chemical process equipment, used by engineers globally • Copious examples of successful applications, with supporting schematics and data to illustrate the functioning and performance of equipment 
  • Revised edition, new material includes updated equipment cost data, liquid-solid and solid systems, and the latest information on membrane separation technology
  • Provides equipment rating forms and manufacturers’ data, worked examples, valuable shortcut methods, rules of thumb, and equipment rating forms to demonstrate and support the design process
  • Heavily illustrated with many line drawings and schematics to aid understanding, graphs and tables to illustrate performance data

Readership

Practicing chemical engineers (e.g. process engineers, design engineers, mechanical engineers) in chemical, petroleum, pharmaceutical and plastics industries as well as consulting engineers.
