Distillation is a major separation technique practised in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, petroleum refining, gas and alcohol industries. Because of its low cost and high potential for better thermodynamic efficiency, it is likely to remain the most common method of separation in these industries. This book is a companion volume to "Distillation Operation", and it aims to continue the updated account of this evolving separation process. It loooks at process and equipment design procedures, practical limitations and solutions to typical problems. Each chapter ends with sections on nomenclature and references.

Industry Reviews

"This book is a worthy sequel to the author's previous excellent book Distillation Operation. It is a very impressive work covering almost all aspects of process equipment design procedures for distillation columns." Chemical Engineering 19921001 "Every practicing chemical engineer working in or for the process industries, including those who specialize in fractionation and, most certainly, those who do not, should find "Distillation Design" invaluable. ...The content is so totally complete and the presentation is so refreshingly down-to-earth, this book, in many ways, is the best to come along in more than a generation. ...The discussion of new products is astonishingly comprehensive." Chemical Engineering Progress 19920501
