Process Plant Machinery provides the mechanical, chemical or plant engineer with the information needed to choose equipment best suited for a particular process, to determine optimum efficiency, and to conduct basic troubleshooting and maintenance procedures.
Process Plant Machinery is a unique single-source reference for engineers, managers and technical personnel who need to acquire an understanding of the machinery used in modern process plants: prime movers and power transmission machines; pumping equipment; gas compression machinery; and mixing, conveying, and separation equipment. Starting with an overview of each class, the book quickly leads the reader through practical applications and size considerations into profusely illustrated component descriptions. Where necessary, standard theory is expertly explained in shortcut formulas and graphs. Maintainability and vulnerability concerns are dealt with as well.
