Description

Ludwig's Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants is ever evolving starting with the first edition some 60 years ago. The volumes in this fifth edition provide improved techniques and fundamental designs methodologies to guide the practicing engineer in designing process equipment and applying chemical processes to the properly detailed hardware. Like its predecessor, this new edition continues to present updated information for achieving optimum operational and process conditions and to avoid problems caused by inadequate sizing and lack of internally detailed hardware. The volumes provide both fundamental theories where applicable and direct application of these theories to applied equations essential in the design effort. This approach in presenting design information is essential for troubleshooting process equipment and in executing system performance analysis. Volume 1 covers process planning, flow-sheeting and scheduling, cost estimation and economic, physical properties of liquids and gases, fluid flow, mixing of liquids, mechanical separations, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, process optimization. It builds upon Ernest E. Ludwig’s classic text to further enhance its use as a chemical engineering process design manual of methods and proven fundamentals. This new edition includes new content on three-phase separation, mixing of liquids, ejectors and mechanical vacuum systems, process safety and pressure-relieving devices, metallurgy and corrosion, process safety management / HAZOP and hazard analyses, and optimization of chemical process / blending.
