This concise volume explains when to procure new equipment, how to prepare specifications for floating inquiries, and guidelines for detailed technical discussions with vendors in the chemical and related industries. It covers the common equipment and supplies used in chemical plants, refineries-please delete reference to refineries, and effluent treatment facilities such as pumps, blowers, reactors, heat exchangers, waste heat recovery boilers, heat... more...

Thermoplastics represent appx 90% by weight of all plastics consumed world-wide. We know them mainly in the form of polythenes, polyolefins, polystyrenes, nylons and acrylics. Under different heating conditions and by varying the composition of the plastic it is possible to make many different products with differing properties.This is a decision-making tool and source-book of information for plastics users, providing detailed accounts of the materials... more...

The dramatic evolution of catalytic converters in the last thirty years was a result of a need worldwide to reduce pollution created by the exhaust gases of internal combustion engines. Environmental concerns have led American, Japanese and European Union (EU) legislation to pose continuously stricter emission limits for petrol engines in the last decades. The catalytic converter has become the most important means of exhaust treatment to achieve the... more...


This book serves as a training tool for individuals in industry and academia involved with heat transfer applications. Although the literature is inundated with texts emphasizing theory and theoretical derivations, the goal of this book is to present the subject of heat transfer from a strictly pragmatic point of view.The book is divided into four Parts: Introduction, Principles, Equipment Design Procedures and Applications, and ABET-related Topics.... more...

The petroleum industry spends millions of dollars every year to combat the formation of hydrates - the solid, crystalline compounds that form from water and small molecules - that cause problems by plugging transmission lines and damaging equipment. They are a problem in the production, transmission and processing of natural gas and it is even possible for them to form in the reservoir itself if the conditions are favorable. Natural Gas Hydrates is... more...

Linking theory to practice, this book provides a better fundamental understanding of Portland cement and hydraulic binders which is necessary to make better concrete. It has been clearly demonstrated that concrete durability is closely linked to its water/binder ratio and proper curing during the first week after casting. In this rigorously presented work, Pierre-Claude Aïtcin explains the complexity of the hydration reaction and how to make, use and... more...
