Emphasizes the design, control, and functioning of various unit operations - offering shortcut methods of calculation along with computer and nomographic solution techniques. Provides practical sections on conversion to and from SI units and cost indexes for quick updating of all cost information.;This book should be of interest to mechanical, chemical, process design, project, and materials engineers and continuing-education courses in these disciplines.

"...exhaustive references, numerous illustrations and graphical presentation of data...aid the design of the equipment....the work is well done and the author and publisher deserve credit for bringing out this...book."
---Chemical Industry News, 1993
"...As many as 79 international experts from USA, UK, Canada, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Italy, Austria and Israel have contributed to make the two-volume set a comprehensive...information base on unit operations in chemical engineering. In all cases, emphasis is placed on the design, control and functioning of various operations. The set is valuable to all those connected with the design and control as well as research work involved with unit operations."
