The Fourth Edition of Powder Technology Handbook continues to serve as the comprehensive guide to powder technology and the fundamental engineering processes of particulate technology, while incorporating significant advances in the field in the decade since publication of the previous edition. The handbook offers a well-rounded perspective on powder technologies in gas and liquid phases that extends from particles and powders to powder beds and from basic problems to actual applications.

This new edition features fully updated and new chapters written by a team of internationally distinguished contributors. All content has been updated and new sections added on. Contents are classified into the following parts, and explained as clearly as possible by using the hundreds of figures and tables.

  • Part I: Particle Characterization and Standard Powder
  • Part II: Fundamental Properties of Particles
  • Part III: Properties of Powders and Powder Beds
  • Part IV: Particle Generation and Modification
  • Part V: Powder Handlings and Simulations
  • Part VI: Process Instrumentation
  • Part VII: Working Atmospheres-Risks, Hazards and Protection-

Broad topical coverage includes:

  • sophisticated characterization methodologies
  • standardization of powders
  • particles and agglomerates in flow, vibrational and acoustic fields
  • nanoparticle characterization and handling
  • particle modification and composite particles
  • mechanochemistry
  • particle and aerosol generation methodologies
  • advanced large-scale simulations of fluidized beds, powder handling devices, particle breakage, colloidal particles in solutions
  • tomography for powders
  • health, risk and protection for nanoparticles and PM2.5
  • detonation and explosion by powders

Powder Technology Handbook provides methodologies of powder and particle handling technology essential to scientific researchers and practical industrial engineers. It contains contemporary and comprehensive information on powder and particle handling technology that is extremely useful not only to newcomers but also to experienced engineers and researchers in the field of powder and particle science and technology.
