Drawing from the third edition of the bestselling Powder Technology Handbook, this book concentrates on handling methods and unit operations for powder and particle processing techniques. Itexamines the purpose and factors involved in each process—including planning, equipment, measurements, and other necessary considerations.

This book carefully incorporates the progressive work and vision of new authors while retaining the concepts that continue to promote innovative research and applications. In addition to detailing the purpose and implementation of processes including kneading, drying, filtration, and powder coating, the authors highlight recent developments in combustion and heating, electrostatic powder coating, and simulation. They also emphasize practical information including multipurpose equipment, instrumentation for key measurements, and modeling techniques. The text concludes with a review of recent data on the health effects of small particles and the types of protective devices that are currently available.

Powder Technology: Handling and Operations, Process Instrumentation, and Working Hazards offers material scientists and chemical engineers a well-rounded guide to utilizing particle and powder processes for a rapidly expanding array of applications.
