Concepts Of Chemical Engineering 4 Chemists

Based on the popular course of the same title, Concepts of Chemical Engineering 4 Chemists outlines the basic aspects of chemical engineering for chemistry professionals. It clarifies the terminology used and explains the systems methodology approach to process design and operation for chemists with limited chemical engineering knowledge. The book provides practical insights into all areas of chemical engineering, including such aspects as pump design and the measurement of key process variables. The calculation of design parameters, such as heat and mass transfer coefficients, and reaction scale-up are also discussed, as well as hazard analysis, project economics and process control. Designed as a reference guide, it is fully illustrated and includes worked examples as well as extensive reference and bibliography sections. Concepts of Chemical Engineering 4 Chemists is ideal for those who either work alongside chemical engineers or who are embarking on chemical engineering-type projects.
