From the reviews of the First Edition:
"[The book] has the particular merit of pulling together information on many possible separation techniques in one convenient work and might well encourage some non-conventional thinking . . . it would be an asset to any technical library and ought to be on the desk of anyone interested in separation processes."
-Chemical Engineering
A collection of articles on separation technology from the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology
This two-volume set features over seventy carefully selected articles on separation technology from the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of Chemical Technology. Written by a panel of prominent scholars from industry, academia, and research institutions from around the world, the articles in this remarkable collection provide readers with knowledge on the theoretical and applied aspects of industrial separation processes.
Featuring content that has been expanded upon, updated, and modernized since publication of the first edition, this comprehensive two-volume set presents the principles of separation processes, process design, equipment, operation, and applications. Covering a wealth of critical topics, the articles found here have been arranged alphabetically for ease of use and focus on both established and newer separation processes of industrial importance.
The nearly 2,000 pages that comprise this authoritative two-volume reference are a vital addition to libraries in industry, academia, and government. Additionally, individual chemists, chemical engineers, process engineers, environmental engineers, consultants, suppliers, researchers, and educators in related fields will find it an accessible resource on separation technology.
