The Comprehensive Standard Edition and Premium separation, a chemical engineer

Separation Process Engineering, Second Edition, helps readers thoroughly mastered the standard equilibrium staged separation and the latest new technology. The author explains key separation process with exceptional clarity, realistic examples, the final chapter simulation exercises using Aspen Plus.

This book begins by reviewing the core concepts, such as balance and unit operation, and then describes the step-by-step process to solve the separation problem. Next, it introduces each leading processes, including state-of-the-art technology such as membrane separation, adsorption, and chromatography. For each process, the authors suggest that the basic principles, techniques and equations, as well as a detailed example.

The separation process of the project is new, thoroughly updated edition, the author’s previous book, balance staged “color separation. Enhancements include improved organization, extensive coverage of more than 75% new homework problems, all of the tests in the author’s Purdue University courses.
