This book introduces the basic concepts of chemical engineering plant design and operation at a level understandable to graduate chemists and other scientists. It is aimed particularly at industrial chemists who find themselves working on chemical engineering-type unit operations. It is intended to be a "dip-in" reference, giving guidance on how to, for instance, design pumps, how to measure key process variables and how to use these to calculate the essential design parameters, such as heat and mass transfer coefficients, required for the design (and analysis) of typical unit operations (e.g. heat exchangers, distillation columns, reactors). Other issues, such as safety, project economic appraisal and process control are also covered. The book avoids derivations from first principles, simply providing the necessary equations and explaining and demonstrating their use.

Industry Reviews

Easy to follow and contains many well explained worked examples......presentation of familiar concepts, like kinetics and thermodynamics, from a different angle is an ideal way to start learning some engineering terminology. Working through the excellent examples, the chemist reader should gain sufficient knowledge of a wide range of topics to apply many simple engineering principles. * Chemistry World, September 2007, 72 (Jillian Thompson) *
