Low Grade Heat Driven Multi-effect Distillation and Desalination (Paperback) (Hui Tong Chua & Bijan
About this item
Low Grade Heat Driven Multi-Effect Distillation describes the development of advanced multi-effect evaporation technologies that are driven by low grade sensible heat, which includes process waste heat in refineries, heat rejection from diesel generators or microturbines, solar energy and geothermal energy. The technologies can be applied to desalination in remote areas, purifying produced water in oil-and-gas industries, and re-concentrate process liquor in refineries.
The book is meant for researchers, engineering scientists, graduate students, and industrial practitioners working in desalination, petrochemical and mineral refining sectors.
They will use the book to understand and to be convinced about the technologies and the opportunities that relate to their respective industries. For researchers and graduate students, the core enabling ideas in the book will give them insights and open up new horizons in thermal engineering.
- Focuses on advanced yet practical distillation technologies using low-grade sensible heat
- Explains the new design paradigm that has to accompany the development of the technologies
- Contains key experimental data that serve to prove the core concepts that underpin the new technologies
- Covers extensive thermo-economic analyses of the technologies, the price point for adoption, capital cost comparison with existing technologies, operating costs, and net present values
