Design of Simple and Robust Chemical Plants

The approaches to the design of process plants described in this work, lead to process designs which require 30-40% less capital. The text discusses design philosophies and provides a structured approach for the implementation of planned and existing plants. There are also numerous examples to illustrate what simple design can create. As this text illustrates how to apply these new approaches to achieve competitive processes it should be of interest to students, as well as experienced engineers read more error-file:TidyOut.log US List Price: $145.00

Modern Power Station Practice: Boilers and Ancillary Plant
R.M. Clapp Our Price: £14.50

Used Price : £8.70

This is part of a 12-volume set. Volume B covers boilers and ancillary plant including boiler unit thermal and pressure parts design and dust extraction, draught systems and gas desulpherization. The text reflects the cumulation of experience gained in the design, manufacture and operation of large coal- and oil-fired boilers in the last 20 years. The introduction of 500 MW boilers was not without its problems and this led to the analysis of boiler plant in all its aspects - combustion, furnace heat tranfer, the design of superheaters and reheaters operating in the creep range, boiler tube corrosion and its interaction with creep life, the control of slagging and fouling and the maintenance of boiler efficiency. This volume presents a review of modern practice in the design and operation of large boiler plant covering all aspects including the characteristics and selection of major auxiliaries and the control of gaseous and particulate emissions.

Handbook of Psychrometric Charts: Humidity Diagrams for EngineersÂÂ
D.C. Shallcross

In chemical, petroleum, air-conditioning and refrigeration engineering, the engineer often encounters systems where gases and condensing vapours co-exist. Key data describing the behaviour of such mixtures can be obtained by consulting an appropriate psychometric chart. This book brings together over 270 such charts, covering most of the systems likely to be encountered by chemical, petroleum, air-conditioning and refrigeration engineers. The condition of a mixture of a gas and a condensing vapour can be represented by a single point on an appropriate psychrometric chart. This point can usually be fixed using two pieces of data and, once defined, the chart can be used to determine other information concerning the gas mixture. For example, if a point is defined using the dry bulb temperature of a mixture and its relative humidity, a range of other properties, such as dew point, specific volume, specific enthalpy, absolute humidity and adiabatic saturation temperature can easily be found without recourse to lengthy calculation. In this book, following an introductory chapter on the construction and use of the charts, over 270 charts covering a wide range of systems at various temperatures and pressures are presented. These charts are based on a model characterizing the behaviour of the vapour phase using the Virial Equation of State and take into account the solubility of gas components in the condensed vapour. In use they offer the engineer rapid access to accurate, concise and otherwise difficult to obtain data. This book should be of interest to: chemical and environmental engineers in private consulting firms and government agencies; mechanical and petroleum engineers in similar firms; and lecturers in chemical engineering, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering and air conditioning engineering.

After outlining the spectroscopic theory required, the authors discuss the components of an MMW cavity spectrometer, concentrating on compact, automatic, low-cost instruments. They then cover solid state MMW sources with cryogenically cooled and room temperature detectors, post-detector signal processing, smoothing, filtering and spectral profile fitting. The book concludes with a look at the future of the technique, in areas such as millimetre wave-over-fibre technology.

Organic Analytical Chemistry: Theory and Practice
Jag Mohan
Our Price: 59.00

Rapid developments in analytical techniques and the use of modern reagents in organic synthesis during the last two decades have revolutionized the approach to organic structure determination. As advanced topics in organic analysis such as spectroscopic methods are being introduced, postgraduate students (majoring in organic chemistry) have been feeling handicapped by the nonavailability of a book that could uncover various aspects of qualitative and quantitative organic analysis. This text is written primarily to stimulate their interest. Key features include: identification and characterization of organic compounds by classical methods; mechanisms of various reactions involved in the detection of functional groups and their derivatization; functional groups interfering with a given test procedure; identification of organic compounds by spectral methods (IR, UV, NMR and mass spectrometry); general techniques for separation and purification; preparation of organic compound based on important name reaction and pharmaceutical properties; mechanisms of the reactions involved in the synthesis; simple analytical techniques and specific methods of quantitative element, functional groups and biochemical estimations; and incorporating ample modern techniques of organic analysis

Hansen Solubility Parameters: A User's Handbook
C.M. Hansen
Our Price: 99.00

This handbook focuses on Hansen Solubility Parametres. Charles Hansen began his work with solvents in 1962 and almost immediately began producing new and groundbreaking results. Since then, his Hansen Solubility Parametres have been extensively used and have proven valuable to a variety of industries, including coatings, adhesives, plastics, protective clothing and environmental protection. They allow correlations and systematic comparisons previously not possible such as polymer solubility, swelling and permeation, surface wetting and dewetting, the solubility of organic salts, and many biological applications. Until now, however, their seemingly universal ability to predict molecular affinities has been generally taken as semiempirical.
