Overview

The book is written in a practical manner for the education of B. S. level chemical engineers. It introduces students to common equipment and gives them the basic concepts of operation both qualitatively and quantitatively. A solid theoretical foundation enables students to understand basic phenomena underlying the unit operations but real-world applications are also sufficiently covered.
