about this item

Scaling Chemical Processes: Practical Guides in Chemical Engineering is one of a series of short texts that each provides a focused introductory view on a single subject. The full library spans the main topics in the chemical process industries for engineering professionals who require a basic grounding in various related topics. They are ‘pocket publications’ that the professional engineer can easily carry with them or access electronically while working. Each text is highly practical and applied, and presents first principles for engineers who need to get up to speed in a new area fast.

The focused facts provided in each guide will help you converse with experts in the field, attempt your own initial troubleshooting, check calculations, and solve rudimentary problems. This book discusses scaling chemical processes from a laboratory through a pilot plant to a commercial plant. It bases scaling on similarity principles and uses dimensional analysis to derive the dimensionless parameters necessary to ensure a successful chemical process development program. This series is fully endorsed and co-branded by the IChemE, and they help to promote the series.
