This book is an exhaustive treatise on distillation engineering. Starting from the very basics, every aspect of design of tray column and packed tower has been presented in stepwise manner in simple and lucid language. This book will take you through the equipments and components required for distillation process - their design, performance, installation, operation as well as associated operating problems and their troubleshooting. Discussion of large number of proprietary material from legendary manufacturers -- Sulzer, Koch-Glitsch, ACS Industries, Raschig AG, Jaeger, and Norton Co. -- add value to the book. The book has more than 1,000 illustrations, which includes photos, line diagrams, tables and graphs. These supplement the text in explaining design, column, hydraulics, operations, and troubleshooting. This book would be helpful to professionals working in the area of Chemical Process Engineering and Operations, Chemical Process Control, Material Science Engineering, Corrosion Engineering and Operations, Plant Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Mechanical Equipment Design (Tower Internals). Graduate and undergraduate students of Chemical Engineering will also find it useful. TABLE OF CONTENTS : - 1. Introduction 2. Trays and Tray Column Design 3. Tray Column Internals and Design 4.
