Revised & Expanded Third Edition!


If solving chemical engineering problems quickly and accurately is key to your work, here's an invaluable info-packed resource: McGraw-Hill's Handbook of Chemical Engineering Calculations.

Fully revised and expanded, this Third Edition delivers step-by-step procedures for performing a wide array of chemical engineering calculations -- along with fully worked-out examples that help you avoid costly errors.

With practical techniques that help you solve problems manually, or by setting up computer-based procedures, this authoritative guide features new sections covering:

* Biotechnology

* Water pollution control

* Chemical process plant cost engineering

And revised and updated sections on:

* Physical and chemical properties

* Stoichiometry

* Chemical equilibrium

* Reaction kinetics and reactor design

* Flow of fluids and solids

* Heat transfer

* Distillation

* Crystallization

* Absorption and stripping

* Filtration

* Liquid agitation

* Size reduction

* Air pollution control

* And much, much more!

An indispensable tool for chemical engineers, this handbook will minimize your effort — and maximize your output!

A compilation of the calculation procedures needed every day on the job by chemical engineers. Tables of Contents: Physical and Chemical Properties; Stoichiometry; Phase Equilibrium; Chemical-Reaction Equilibrium; Reaction Kinetics and Reactor Design; Flow of Fluids and Solids; Heat Transfer; Distillation; Extraction and Leaching; Crystallization; Filtration; Liquid Agitation; Size Reduction; Drying: Evaporation; Environmental Engineering in the Plant. Illustrations. Index.

Editorial Reviews

An outgrowth of the Standard Handbook of Engineering Calculations, which includes a relatively short section on chemical engineering, this handbook shows how to solve the main process-related chemical engineering problems, either manually with a calculator, or by setting up computer-based procedures. All chapters and examples included in the first edition have been retained. The main change in the present edition is the addition of new chapters on absorption and stripping, and on air pollution control. Also, new examples have been added to several of the existing chapters. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
