A Working Guide to Process Equipment

This extensively revised and updated practical resource fully explains how to diagnose, troubleshoot, and correct problems across a broad range of industries—all without complex equations and without ever losing sight of the importance of direct field measurements and observations. Filled with real-world examples and illustrations, A Working Guide to Process Equipment, Fifth Edition clearly demonstrates how theory applies to solving real-world plant operation problems. Selected hand calculation methods are also provided.

This fifth edition features new and expanded coverage of:

  • Causes and Effects of Wet Steam on Turbines and Strippers
  • Distillation Design Errors and Inspecting Tower Internals
  • Setting Pressure Relief Valves on Vessels and Heat Exchangers
  • Reduction of Flare Losses
  • Safer Procedures for Sampling Hazardous Material
  • Taking Field Measurements Safely and Effectively
