about this item
The Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set includes thirteen independent volumes. It defines how to perform the selection and calculation of equipment involved in the thirteen basic operations of process engineering and offers reliable and simple as possible methods. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.
This volume focuses on the processes of extraction and partitioning, presenting the theory and methods used to separate compounds based on their relative solubility. The topics presented include examples for the calculation of differential liquid-liquid extraction, an investigation of equilibrium and material transfer between a fluid and a divided solid, and the fundamentals of liquid-solid extraction, among other strategies. The author also provides methods needed for the understanding the machinery used in applied thermodynamics in the hopes of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves. The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
