The Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set includes thirteen independent volumes. It defines how to perform the selection and calculation of equipment involved in the thirteen basic operations of process engineering and offers reliable and simple as possible methods. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.
This volume focuses on the process of distillation. Using both practical and theoretical examples, the author describes the various reactions and steps involved in separating out the components of a mixture to attain predefined levels of purity. By investigating different types of liquids, an array of column sizes and the plates involved in distillation, the reader will gain a wide understanding of the physics of liquids. The author also provides methods needed for understanding the machinery used in applied thermodynamics in the hopes of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves. The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
