This book, meant for undergraduate students of Chemical Engineering, focuses on Process Design of Chemical Plant and Equipment. It covers basic principles to design alternate systems, develop process diagrams and select the best alternative to be adopted. Many industrial examples are given to enhance the skills of the students for innovative designs. Salient Features Focus on Process Design than Mechanical Design, leading to understanding of design of process plant equipment and systems. State-of-the-art technique of supercritical extraction, reactive distillation, short path distillation, etc. are discussed. Heat exchanger network design, energy conservation in the most commonly used unit operation, distillation, solids cooling, two phase flow system, jet reactors, etc. are extensively covered in the text. Pedagogy includes nearly 100 solved problems and 120 practice questions. Table of content :- Chapter 1. Process Engineering Chapter 2. Importance to Process Diagrams in Process Engineering Chapter 3.
