Particle technology is a term used to refer to the science andtechnology related to the handling and processing of particles andpowders. The production of particulate materials, with controlledproperties tailored to subsequent processing and applications, isof major interest to a wide range of industries, including chemicaland process, food, pharmaceuticals, minerals and metals companiesand the handling of particles in gas and liquid solutions is a keytechnological step in chemical engineering.

This textbook provides an excellent introduction to particletechnology with worked examples and exercises. Based on feedbackfrom students and practitioners worldwide, it has been newly editedand contains new chapters on slurry transport, colloids and fineparticles, size enlargement and the health effects of fine powders.Topics covered include:

  • Characterization (Size Analysis)
  • Processing (Granulation, Fluidization)
  • Particle Formation (Granulation, Size Reduction)
  • Storage and Transport (Hopper Design, Pneumatic Conveying,Standpipes, Slurry Flow)
  • Separation (Filtration, Settling, Cyclones)
  • Safety (Fire and Explosion Hazards, Health Hazards)
  • Engineering the Properties of Particulate Systems (Colloids,Respirable Drugs, Slurry Rheology)

This book is essential reading for undergraduate students ofchemical engineering on particle technology courses. It is alsovaluable supplementary reading for students in other branches ofengineering, applied chemistry, physics, pharmaceutics, mineralprocessing and metallurgy. Practitioners in industries in whichpowders are handled and processed may find it a useful startingpoint for gaining an understanding of the behavior of particles andpowders.

Review:

"It is well written and pedagogical.... Appreciable are the efforts to enrich each chapter with examples which help the reader to better understand the argument and to evaluate what he/she has learned. 'Introduction to Particle Technology' is a book surely recommendable." (Materials and Manufacturing Process, Volume 24, Issue 6)
