Book Description

The latest edition of a perennial bestseller, Multistage Separation Processes, Fourth Edition provides a clear and thorough presentation of the theoretical foundation, and understanding of the development, evaluation, design, and optimization steps of these processes, from both an academic and industrial perspective. The book’s emphasis on starting with theoretical models and their role in computer simulation, followed by practical applications, sets it apart from other texts on this topic. The author also highlights the importance of relating fundamental concepts to intuitive understanding of the processes.

See What’s New in the Fourth Edition:

  • Chapter on fluid-solid operations
  • Expanded development of theories and methods for many applications
  • Adds numerous industry-related examples and end-of-chapter problems
  • Case studies combined with examples
  • Updated and enhanced figures

The book includes a generous number of examples from a wide variety of applications to relate theory to actual results, and to demonstrate the performance of process under varying conditions. The chapter topics follow a logical path that starts with basics and theoretical concepts, and progresses systematically into the various separation processes. Each chapter provides the information relevant to a specific topic, and refers to appropriate chapters in the book as needed. These features combine to give you the understanding required to make the best selections of property prediction and simulation techniques and avoid the cost incurred by the use of improper simulations.

Reviews

"[T]he major value of this book is in its focus on the necessary basic knowledge for explaining the principles of multistage separation processes in a clear schedule with many examples which can be used without difficulties. Engineers in industry may use the book as a quick reference for necessary fundamentals as well as for details in calculation and optimization. Students, especially in fields of chemical engineering and applied chemistry, will find this book most helpful to learn about all the necessary equations and all the calculation methods as explained in a comprehensive manner, and illustrated by numerous useful numerical and illustrative examples."
