Overview

Process Technology Systems / Edition 1

Process Technology Systems uses a straightforward approach to address the various systems in the processing industry, starting with the most common, such as cooling water, wastewater, and steam, and then progressing to less common concepts such as crystallization and extraction. Each chapter has a small line drawing or P&ID (Piping and Instrumentation Diagram) of the system under discussion and photos of some of the equipment, providing readers with visual references as they go. Each topic is covered in-depth, and features important information on its safety implications, as well as troubleshooting. With completely up-to-date information and technology, this book will help readers grasp the fundamentals of all the main process technology systems, as well as the importance of each system for meeting production schedules and determining quality of products and efficiency.
