Air Pollution Control Equipment Selection Guide
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after May 15, 2021
This new edition of Air Pollution Control Equipment Selection Guide builds upon the successes of previous editions that developed a detailed discussion on various technologies used for air pollution control. This book covers a wide range of equipment and provides a good overview of the related principles and applications. A particularly valuable feature are the practical examples, not commonly available in typical books. Based on the author’s fifty years of experience in applying and operating air pollution control equipment, this book provides easy to read information on basic air pollution control technology and is the quintessential resource for the busy engineer and for those who do not have formal training in air pollution control.
Features of the Third Edition:
- Uniform and consistent applications’ information for comparing the effectiveness of different technologies
- Provides answers to questions about how to reduce operating costs and how to achieve peak performance
- Concise descriptions of each equipment with diagnostics and testing suggestions
- Brand new chapters on optimization techniques that help readers deal with the different types of hardware for better performance and efficacy.
