Description

The Powder Technology Handbook, Third Edition provides a comprehensive guide to powder technology while examining the fundamental engineering processes of particulate technology. The book offers a well-rounded perspective on powder technologies that extends from particle to powder and from basic problems to actual applications.

Providing comprehensive coverage of powder/particle handling methods and unit operations, this handbook prepares the reader for solving new problems using an integrated approach. By presenting problems in wet processes and particles in liquids alongside those encountered with dry powder processes, it offers strategies for finding the optimal solutions to problems in any context. The book contains new sections on particle motion in fluids, design and formulation of composite particles, combustion and heating, electrostatic powder coating, attrition of a particle, breakage of aggregates, and the particle motion, rheology, and electrical properties of a powder bed. It also discusses recently developed areas of study such as simulation, surface analysis, and nanoparticles.

Maintaining the standard of quality found in the previous bestselling editions, the third edition of the Powder Technology Handbook reflects the most recent advances and provides convenient access to processes and properties of particulate technology.

Reviews

“…Continues the tradition of the bestselling Powder Technology Handbook…a comprehensive guide to the field of powder and particle technology…[offers] convenient access to the latest information, and all at an affordable price. Despite participation of many authors, this Handbook is edited in a unified fashion, so as not to become a mere collection of monographs… This new edition has been updated and expanded by adding newly developed areas, and especially by introducing new, young authors who bring a fresh look to the renewal of several sections… areas such as surface analysis, composite particles, and simulation…will serve to study nanoparticle technology…. Compared with previous issues, the authors and editors [in the third edition] emphasize the fundamental phenomena and aim to help construct a more fundamentally scientific basis for powder and particle technology.”

—Keishi Gotoh, Honorary Editor-in-Chief of Advanced Powder Technology, 2006
