Keeping the importance of basic tools of process calculations—material balance and energy balance—in mind, the text prepares the students to formulate material and energy balance theory on chemical process systems. It also demonstrates how to solve the main process-related problems that crop up in chemical engineering practice. The chapters are organized in a way that enables the students to acquire an in-depth understanding of the subject. The emphasis is given to the units and conversions, basic concepts of calculations, material balance with/without chemical reactions, and combustion of fuels and energy balances. Apart from numerous illustrations, the book contains numerous solved problems and exercises which bridge the gap between theoretical learning and practical implementation. All the numerical problems are solved with block diagrams to reinforce the understanding of the concepts. Primarily intended as a text for the undergraduate students of chemical engineering, it will also be useful for other allied branches of chemical engineering such as polymer science and engineering and petroleum engineering. KEY FEATURES • Methods of calculation for stoichiometric proportions with practical examples from the Industry • Simplified method of solving numerical problems under material balance with and without chemical reactions • Conversions of chemical engineering equations from one unit to another • Solution of fuel and combustion, and energy balance problems using tabular column

Designed as a textbook for the undergraduate students of chemical engineering and related disciplines such as biotechnology, polymer technology, petrochemical engineering, electrochemical engineering, environmental engineering and safety engineering, the chief objective of the book is to prepare students to make analysis of chemical processes through calculations and to develop systematic problem-solving skills in them. The text presents the fundamentals of chemical engineering operations and processes in a simple style that helps the students to gain a thorough understanding of chemical process calculations. The book deals with the principles of stoichiometry to formulate and solve material and energy balance problems in processes with and without chemical reactions. With the help of examples, the book explains the construction and use of reference-substance plots, equilibrium diagrams, psychrometric charts, steam tables and enthalpy composition diagrams. It also elaborates on thermophysics and thermochemistry to acquaint the students with the thermodynamic principles of energy balance calculations. The book is supplemented with Solutions Manual for instructors containing detailed solutions of all chapter-end unsolved problems.NEW TO THE SECOND EDITION • Incorporates a new chapter on Bypass, Recycle and Purge Operations • Comprises updations in some sections and presents new sections on Future Avenues and Opportunities in Chemical Engineering, Processes in Biological and Energy Systems • Contains several new worked-out examples in the chapter on Material Balance with Chemical Reaction • Includes GATE questions with answers up to the year 2016 in Objective-type questions KEY FEATURES • SI units are used throughout the book. • All basic chemical engineering operations and processes are introduced, and different types of problems are illustrated with worked-out examples. • Stoichiometric principles are extended to solve problems related to bioprocessing, environmental engineering, etc. • Exercise problems (more than 810) are organised according to the difficulty level and all are provided with answers.

The present textbook is written for undergraduate students of chemical engineering as per the syllabus framed by AICTE curriculum. It explains the basic chemical process principles in a lucid manner. SI units, chemical stoichiometry and measures of composition, behaviour of gases, vapour pressure of pure substances, and humidity and saturation are covered in detail. In addition, mass and energy balances of chemical processes have also been described. Chemical processes without chemical reactions include fluid flow, mixing, evaporation distillation, absorption and stripping, liquid–liquid extraction, leaching and washing, adsorption, drying, crystallization and membrane separation process. SALIENT FEATURES • Description of all concepts and principles with a rich pedagogy for easy understanding • Correct use of SI units • Over 270 solved examples for understanding the basic concepts • Answers to all chapter-end numerical problems for checking the accuracy of calculations TARGET AUDIENCE • BE/B.Tech (Chemical Engineering)

This complete revision of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants, Volume 1 builds upon Ernest E. Ludwig’s classic text to further enhance its use as a chemical engineering process design manual of methods and proven fundamentals. This new edition includes important supplemental mechanical and related data, nomographs and charts. Also included within are improved techniques and fundamental methodologies, to guide the engineer in designing process equipment and applying chemical processes to properly detailed equipment. All three volumes of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants serve the practicing engineer by providing organized design procedures, details on the equipment suitable for application selection, and charts in readily usable form. Process engineers, designers, and operators will find more chemical petrochemical plant design data in: Volume 2, Third Edition, which covers distillation and packed towers as well as material on azeotropes and ideal/non-ideal systems. Volume 3, Third Edition, which covers heat transfer, refrigeration systems, compression surge drums, and mechanical drivers. A. Kayode Coker, is Chairman of Chemical & Process Engineering Technology department at Jubail Industrial College in Saudi Arabia. He’s both a chartered scientist and a chartered chemical engineer for more than 15 years. and an author of Fortran Programs for Chemical Process Design, Analysis and Simulation, Gulf Publishing Co., and Modeling of Chemical Kinetics and Reactor Design, Butterworth-Heinemann. Provides improved design manuals for methods and proven fundamentals of process design with related data and charts Covers a complete range of basic day-to-day petrochemical operation topics with new material on significant industry changes since 1995.
