Portada
Elsevier, 2012 M12 6 - 864 páginas

Chemical Process Equipment is a results-oriented reference for engineers who specify, design, maintain or run chemical and process plants. This book delivers information on the selection, sizing and operation of process equipment in a format that enables quick and accurate decision making on standard process and equipment choices, saving time, improving productivity, and building understanding. Coverage emphasizes common real-world equipment design rather than experimental or esoteric and focuses on maximizing performance.

  • Legacy reference for chemical and related engineers who work with vendors to design, specify and make final equipment selection decisions
  • Copious examples of successful applications, with supporting schematics and data to illustrate the functioning and performance of equipment
  • Provides equipment rating forms and manufacturers’ data, worked examples, valuable shortcut methods, and rules of thumb to demonstrate and support the design process
  • Heavily illustrated with line drawings and schematics to aid understanding, as well as graphs and tables to illustrate performance data
