ALBRIGHT’S CHEMICAL ENGINEERING HANDBOOK

 Key Features:

  • Provides reliable sources of data and modeling methods for the extrapolation, estimation, or measurement of data
  • Defines essential concepts in mathematics, chemistry, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat/mass transfer
  • Describes industrial processes and technologies such as mixing, separations, distillation, stripping, and drying
  • Discusses aspects of process control, materials selection, process design and improvements, and trouble shooting
  • Examines current issues, regulations, and resources for environmental engineering and waste management
  • Offers unique and relevant coverage of copyright, communication, and ethical considerations
  • Published November 2008, 1,928 pages, 7 x10

Taking greater advantage of powerful computing capabilities over the last several years, the development of fundamental information and new models has led to major advances in nearly every aspect of chemical engineering. Albright’s Chemical Engineering Handbook represents a reliable source of updated methods, applications, and fundamental concepts that will continue to play a significant role in driving new research and improving plant design and operations. Well-rounded, concise, and practical by design, this handbook collects valuable insight from an exceptional diversity of leaders in their respective specialties. Each chapter provides a clear review of basic information, case examples, and references to additional, more in-depth information. They explain essential principles, calculations, and issues relating to topics including reaction engineering, process control and design, waste disposal, and electrochemical and biochemical engineering. The final chapters cover aspects of patents and intellectual property, practical communication, and ethical considerations that are most relevant to engineers.

DISTILLATION — MANAGING CHALLENGES, OPTIMIZING OUTCOMES

DETAILS

When it comes to distillation — a workhorse unit operation at chemical process plants — efforts to design, specify and operation columns are just as important as efforts to maintain, troubleshoot and revamp them. Modern revamps typically include efforts to troubleshoot and upgrade ancillary equipment such as reboilers, condensers, pumps, valves, heat exchangers and instrumentation. Increasingly, process simulation plays a role, to help engineers evaluate the performance of proposed and existing distillation columns.

REDUCING RISK IN CHEMICAL PROCESS OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES- VOLUME ONE

During chemical process operations, risk can take many forms. For instance, risk associated with management and engineering decisions can create a range of environmental, health and safety consequences, lead to sub-optimal process operations and depressed production yields, and incur additional maintenance and repair requirements. Similarly, risk associated with project planning, modeling and execution can increase financial and business risk, by resulting in cost overruns and schedule delays, depressed profit margins and squandered market opportunities.
