Description

Comprehensive and practical guide to the selection and design of a wide range of chemical process equipment. Emphasis is placed on real-world process design and performance of equipment.

Provides examples of successful applications, with numerous drawings, graphs, and tables to show the functioning and performance of the equipment. Equipment rating forms and manufacturers' questionnaires are collected to illustrate the data essential to process design. Includes a chapter on equipment cost and addresses economic concerns.

Key Features

  • Practical guide to the selection and design of a wide range of chemical process equipment. Examples of successful, real-world applications are provided.

  • Fully revised and updated with valuable shortcut methods, rules of thumb, and equipment rating forms and manufacturers' questionnaires have been collected to demonstrate the design process. Many line drawings, graphs, and tables illustrate performance data.

  • Chapter 19 has been expanded to cover new information on membrane separation. Approximately 100 worked examples are included. End of chapter references also are provided.

Readership

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

SECONDARY MARKET: University and polytechnic (dept. of chemical engineering and continuing ed. dept.) courses (process design or design), and school libraries

Reviews

“...chemical engineers working on smaller-volume products made by batch/semibatch processes should have this encyclopedic volume on their bookshelves alongside Perry’s Chemical Engineer’s Handbook...an extremely useful summary of rules of thumb is given” — Organic Process Research and Development Journal 2005 “This is an excellent book that can serve as the text for an undergraduate course in plant design. It will also be very useful as a sourcebook for process-design engineers that work for smaller companies that do not have their own process equipment design standards. The new authors have done an outstanding job in updating and expanding the original book by Professor Walas” — Chemical Engineering, March 2006
