Overview

Select the most efficient and cost effective process and equipment method to fit your individual need.

Based on two popular training courses conducted by Stewart and Arnold, Gas Sweetening and Processing Field Manual provides you with the necessary tools and techniques for designing and selecting the most cost efficient and effective process and equipment long after you have left the classroom.

The book starts with an explanation of the terms and theories used throughout the industry. This is followed by clear and rigorous exposition of sweetness processes such as Solid Bed Adsorption, Chemical Solvents, Physical Solvents, Distillation, and Gas Permeation. Exercises appear at the conclusion of each chapter with hints in addition to full solutions. Other topics include Design Procedure, Design Examples, Problems and Practical Solutions, Value of NGL Components, Liquid Recovery Process, Absorption/Lean Oil Process, Joule-Thomson, Refrigeration and Cryogenic (Expansion Turbine) Plants. With this book in hand, Engineers and process designers find a complete guide to process and equipment, both in terms of its application to efficient and cost effective operations.
