    From the Back Cover:


    This job-critical guide is an invaluable resource for anyone in the chemical process industry. Inside in this book you'll find practical, worked-out calculations for reactor loops material balance calculations, catalysis in chemical reactors, estimation of important steam utility variables, as well as chemical economic calculations for efficient chemical plant operations -- problems which are common to the process industry but hard to find in most texts.

    Packed with step-by-step procedures and examples, this manual features important tables for quick information retrieval, plus:

    • Detailed examples of problem-solving calculations for day-to-day operations
    • Comprehensive coverage of formulas, mathematical methods, and computations used regularly in the process industries
    • Quick estimation methods for gas densities at different pressures and temperatures
    • Methods for deduction of specific heat of liquids and dead weight of materials from heat exchanger calculations
    • Technologies for acid-gas removal processes
    • Solutions for vapor analysis in fractional distillation
    • And much more
