Mihir's chemical process engineering handbook is comprehensive and provides almost all the information required for process engineering in the upstream, downstream and specialty chemicals industries. This book is very impressive, and I recommend it to every process engineer. It is never easy to compile all the necessary information in one book, and for that, I appreciate the efforts of Mihir Patel in creating an extremely useful handbook for the benefit of all process engineers.
I am always looking for reliable literature references to support my company’s design activities. In that sense, Mihir’s Handbook of Chemical Process Engineering was a nice addition to our knowledge base. With a good balance between theory and practice, it covers all important topics involved in the design of chemical plants in a simple and objective language. On top of that, the calculation spreadsheets and datasheet templates are welcome perks.
I have started to go through the e-books as well as templates and they looks good to me. Will further read and update. There can be few areas of improvement in excel sheets e.g. better way of presentation, inclusion of figures,inclusion of templates for Line sizing for single phase and two phases etc.
Highly recommend the purchase of this book. In my experience of working as a Chemical Engineer I have come across many handbooks on the given subject and yet, this one stands out for it's comprehensive text and intelligible language. This one manages to simplify things and still cover everything that I as a Chemical Engineer need to know or seek guidance upon.
Mihir's book is a useful tool for freelance process engineers like me. Its compilation of data sheet format, TBE format is phenomenal. Data sheets in both MKS as well as British units are available making it simple for "Pick what you need" type work. Overall it's a wonderful compilation and a must have for process design engineers.
I have purchased the handbook and I really appreciate its value.
The restrictions of use and access the handbook is my reason for not giving 5 stars.
Very well compiled useful , and will be handy to all Chemical engineers.
It is very appreciable effort from your side, all the chemical industry related data in one book. This book is very useful for engineers which are working in chemical industry or consultancy. All the basic concept of each & every system is described very well. This book has very good practical approach which guides fresher as well as experienced engineers.
I am a process Engineer with 5 years of Experience in Petrochemical Process Industry and 10 years of experience in the Corrosion field as Cathodic Protection Engineer. This Handbook is the one stop Solution for All process Engineers who are in Designing side, EPC Project side, Operation side, Process Plant Erection, Testing and Commissioning Side.
The author, Mihir Patel has compiled complete data in a nutshell required for a process engineer to design process equipment with his vast experience in Chemical Process Industry and thankful for his great efforts to bring such a great practical handy book for a process engineer.

The handbook of chemical process engineering is the book I was looking for many years. I have 15 years of process engineering experience in refinery and petrochemical EPC projects. I can confidently say that this book is a great help for every process Engineer. Specially for young process engineers and also helpful for experience process engineers as a excellent reference book. I sincerely thank the author for taking so much efforts and contribution for the benefit of the all the process engineers worldwide. If I have any suggestions I will definitely share that with you so that we together can add value to this extremely important reference book.
Mihir's handbook is a perfect recipe for any Process Engineer to stir up their mind and excel in that field. Such books should form a part of the revamped Chemical Engineering course and curriculum offered to students in India.
Exiting.. a very generous offer ... especially for whom is really interested.
It's one of the best book I have ever seen which not only useful to Graduate Process Engineers but also those professionals who are practicing in Process Industry since a long time.
Highly practical handbook.
Each and every aspects of process engineering which are highly required for the routine design calculations are elaborated clearly in this handbook.
We need to appreciate the Authors efforts and intentions for sharing his vast experience to other process engineers.
I believe this is the only handbook provide calculation templates and checklists.
I strongly recommend this handbook for the skilled process engineer to make use of this practical guide as a ready reference.
The book is phenomenal in knowledge related to chemical engineering basics and a value for money. I have been in industry for past 32 years and have not seen such a source of information compiled in one place. I am using it to refresh my Chemical Engineering knowledge on a regular basis and especially as a reference for my technical issues arising in my plants. Really I will recommend this beautiful book to any one in the field of chemical engineering at any stage of his career, whether a beginner or skilled engineer to have it as a reference.
Chemical Engineer from batch of 1988
Very impressive work indeed. Can I get pen drive in Pakistan pl?
Its very useful book for all the process & project engineers , The topics in the books are arranged in very sequentially , you will get all the Process Engineering concepts in this handbook.
Great work by Mihir Sir for all the process engineer across the globe.
Thank You Mihir Sir.
I have never seen so much useful information about all phases of process plant projects packed within a single publication.
Thank you Mr Mihir for this majestic work.
It seemed like an useful book. Unfortunately I always use my work computer and I cannot installed 3rd party software in it. Which means I cannot see the content of the book within the pen drive. Thus I've barely being able to use it since I bought. It would be nice if the way to access the book was different.
I have 12+ years of experience in oil and gas engineering design and construction both onshore and offshore facilities.
This chemical process handbook is complete enough, covered almost all technical aspect and has practical side that really helpful for me in designing equipment or generating a comprehensive process study.
Its price is also reasonable and I recommend for all process engineers who want to enrich their knowledge to buy this handbook as their reference.
