The latest principles, processes, and practices

Chemical engineering design is in a constant state of flux. From advances in the practice of separation operations in chemical engineering to corresponding changes in the curriculum, much has happened in the seven years since the publication of Seader and Henley's first edition of Separation Process Principles, including: (1) advances in the fundamentals of mass, heat, and momentum transport, (2) wide availability of computer programs to facilitate the application of mathematical models to a wide range of separation operations, (3) increasing interest in separations involving the solid phase, and (4) changes in the practice of chemical engineering to emphasize product design as well as process design. This second edition reflects these changes.

Highlights of the second edition

  • Chapter on crystallization, including thermodynamic and transport aspects, the MSMPR crystallizer model, and treatments of screen analysis, desublimation, and evaporation
  • Chapter on drying of solids, including treatments of psychrometry and several dryer mathematical models
  • Chapter on leaching of solids, including a discussion of the espresso machine
  • Substantial new sections on ultrafiltration and microfiltration, including detailed examples
  • Added section on simulated-moving-bed adsorption, including detailed examples
  • Expansion of the treatment of batch distillation to include optimal control
  • New sections on hybrid systems and membrane cascades
  • Now includes 214 examples and 649 homework exercises

Editorial Reviews

Chemical Engineering Research excellent book by two talented and distinguished American academics.
Intended for use in undergraduate chemical engineering courses or even a graduate course in separations, this text covers introductory concepts, separations achieved by phase creation or addition, and separations by barriers and solid agents. Three additional chapters treating separations that involve a solid phase may be obtained through the authors. Most topics are illustrated by detailed examples and are accompanied by several homework exercises. Effort is also made to present the development of industrial equipment and the accompanying theory for each separation operation, with pertinent references to the literature.

    A reviewer

    This book is good if you have already taken the course of separations. Otherwise, it will your waste of time, because it is laid out very badly, and there is too much information, but lacks style. Also, the notations are different, making it worse to remember information from previous prereq's.
