MIHIR's Handbook of Chemical Process Engineering

The book titled “Mihir’s Handbook of Chemical Process Engineering” will aid the chemical engineer to carry out chemical process engineering in a very practical way. The process engineer can use the excel based calculation templates effectively to do correct and proper process design. Chemical engineering is a very vast and complex field. This book aims to simplify the process engineering design.

Design of a chemical plant involves one being adept in technical aspects of process engineering. The book aims at making the chemical engineer proficient in the art of process design.

View links to Overall index to each chapter and sub-index for each chapter.

Included are chemical engineering basics on simulation, stoichiometry, fluid property calculation, dimensionless numbers, thermodynamics and on chemical engineering equipment like pump, compressor, steam turbine, gas turbine, flare, motor, fired heater, incinerator, heat exchanger, distillation column, fractionation column, absorber, stripper, packed column, solar evaporation pond, separator. Utility design of nitrogen, compressed air, water, effluent treatment, steam, condensate, desalination, fuel selection is covered.

Many chemical engineering calculations have been included. Special process items like flame arrestor, demister, feed device, pressure reducing and desuperheating station (PRDS), vortex breaker, electric heater, manual valve have been covered.

Process engineering design criteria, process control, material of construction, specialized process studies, safety studies, precommisioning and commissioning have been covered.
