After an overview of the fundamentals, limitations, and scope of reactive distillation, this book uses rigorous models for steady-state design and dynamic analysis of different types of reactive distillation columns and quantitatively compares the economics of reactive distillation columns with conventional multi-unit processes. It goes beyond traditional steady-state design that primarily considers the capital investment and energy costs when analyzing the control structure and the dynamic robustness of disturbances, and discusses how to maximize the economic and environmental benefits of reactive distillation technology.

Preface to the Second Edition NEW TO THIS EDITION "Time and tide wait for no man" and most certainly not for engineering textbooks. The seven years since publication of the first edition of "Separation Process Principles" have witnessed: (1) advances in the fundamentals of mass, heat, and momentum transport and wide availability of computer programs to facilitate the application of complex transport mathematical models; (2) changes in the practice of chemical engineering design; and (3) restructuring of the chemical engineering curriculum. In response to what we have noted and what has been pointed out in strong reviews solicited by the publishers, we have included the following revisions and additions to this second edition: A new section on dimensions and units to facilitate the use of the SI, AE, and CGS systems, which permeate applications to separation processes. The addition to each chapter of a list of instructional objectives. Increased emphasis on the many ways used to express the composition of chemical mixtures. New material on the thermodynamics of difficult mixtures, including electrolytes, polymer solutions, and mixtures of light gases and polar organic compounds. Tables of typical diffusivity values. Table of formulae and meanings of dimensionless groups. A subsection on the recent theoretical analogy of Churchill and Zajic. New sections on hybrid systems and membrane cascades. Discussions of the fourth generation of random packings and high-capacity trays. A brief discussion of the rate-based multicell model. New section on optimal control as a third mode of operation for batch distillation. New discussion on concentration polarization and fouling. New sections on ultrafiltration and microfiltration. New subsection on Continuous, Countercurrent Adsorption Systems. Revision of the subsection on the McCabe-Thiele Method for Bulk Separation by adsorption. New subsection on Simulated (and True) Moving Bed Systems for Adsorption. The following three chapters were not in the first edition of the book, but were available in hard copy, as supplemental chapters, to instructors. They are now included in the second edition: Chapter 16 on Leaching and Washing, with an added subsection on the espresso machine. Chapter 17 on Crystallization, Desublimation, and Evaporation. Chapter 18 on Drying of Solids, including Psychrometry. In the first edition, each topic was illustrated by at least one detailed example and was accompanied by at least three homework exercises. This continues to be true for most of the added topics and chapters. There are now 214 examples and 649 homework exercises. In addition, 839 references are cited.

The latest update to Bela Liptak's acclaimed "bible" of instrument engineering is now available. Retaining the format that made the previous editions bestsellers in their own right, the fourth edition of Process Control and Optimization continues the tradition of providing quick and easy access to highly practical information. The authors are practicing engineers, not theoretical people from academia, and their from-the-trenches advice has been repeatedly tested in real-life applications. Expanded coverage includes descriptions of overseas manufacturer's products and concepts, model-based optimization in control theory, new major inventions and innovations in control valves, and a full chapter devoted to safety. With more than 2000 graphs, figures, and tables, this all-inclusive encyclopedic volume replaces an entire library with one authoritative reference. The fourth edition brings the content of the previous editions completely up to date, incorporates the developments of the last decade, and broadens the horizons of the work from an American to a global perspective. Béla G. Lipták speaks on Post-Oil Energy Technology on the AT&T Tech Channel.

Drying Principles and Practice presents the fundamental principles that underlie drying arts as a basis for explaining the behavior of a drying plant. This book begins with an introductory chapter, followed by an account of the phenomena that causes the influence of moisture on its host material and manner in which moisture may be expelled by heat into the humid surroundings. The quantitative description of the way a moist material dries and how it dries under commercial conditions are also provided. The remainder of this text is devoted to surveying less-common methods of drying, moisture-measurement techniques, dryer-control systems, and aspects of the choice and design of industrial dryers. This publication is valuable to engineers, but is also a good source for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students engaged in studies of heat with mass transfer.

It Is Well Known That The Applications Of Unit Operations Like Heat Transfer, Evaporation, Extraction, Mixing, Filtration And A Host Of Others Are Quite Common In The Pharmaceutical Industry, Be It In The Production Of Synthetic Drugs, Biological And Microbiological Products Or In The Manufacture Of Pharmaceutical Formulations. As Such Anyone Who Is To Look After These Manufacturing Operations Must Be Quite Knowledgeable With The Theoretical And Equipment Aspects Involved In The Relevant Unit Operations.Since A Major Involvement Of The Pharmacy Graduates Lies In The Numerous Manufacturing Operations Mentioned Above, It Is Very Much Necessary That The Subject Is Taught With A Pharmacy Orientation. There Is No Book So Far Which Has Achieved This. The Existing Books On Unit Operations Give Extensive Theory And Also Deal With A Lot Of Equipment Not Employed In The Pharmaceutical Industry. Due To A Lack Of A Pharmacy-Oriented Book In This Area, The Students And The Teachers Are Facing Difficulties In Many Ways.The Present Book Is The First One Of Its Kind On Pharmaceutical Engineering. The Special Features Of This Book Are As Follows: It Includes Theoretical And Equipment Aspects Relevant To Thepharmaceutical Industry And That Too To The Extent Needed For Pharmacy Graduates And Examples From Pharmaceutical Industry Are Quoted Extensively; Solutions To A Number Of Simpler Numerical Problems Are Given. At The End Of Each Chapter, A Large Number Of Questions, Both Theoretical And Numerical, Are Given. There Is Therefore No Doubt That The Book Will Be Of Great Use Not Only To The Students But Also To The Teachers In The Subject In India And Abroad As Well.
