Overview

This new edition of the most complete handbook for chemical and process engineers incorporates the latest information for engineers and practitioners who depend on it as a working tool. New material explores the recent trends and updates of gas treating and fractionator computer solutions analysis. Substantial additions to this edition include a new section on gasification that reflects the many new trends and techniques in the field and a treatment on compressible fluid flow.

This convenient volume provides engineers with hundreds of common sense techniques, shortcuts, and calculations to quickly and accurately solve day-to-day design, operations, and equipment problems. Here, in a compact, easy-to-use format, are practical tips, handy formulas, correlations, curves, charts, tables, and shortcut methods that will save engineers valuable time and effort.

• The standard handbook for chemical and process engineers

• All new material on pinch point analysis on networks of heat exchangers and updates on gas treating in process design and heat transfer

• Hundreds of common sense techniques and calculations

Meet the Author

Mr. Hall graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering (1974). His career in the chemical process industries includes jobs for manufacturers and engineering contractors, where he has designed portions of more than 100 projects. Much of his work has been for food, pharmaceutical, or specialty chemical (i.e., batch chemical process) clients, but he has also designed systems for heavy chemical and petrochemical installations. He has published several articles on chemical engineering topics, and writes computer software (www.pipesizingsoftware.com).
