View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

An immense treasure trove containing hundreds of equipment symptoms, arranged so as to allow swift identification and elimination of the causes. These rules of thumb are the result of preserving and structuring the immense knowledge of experienced engineers collected and compiled by the author - an experienced engineer himself - into an invaluable book that helps younger engineers find their way from symptoms to causes.
This sourcebook is unrivalled in its depth and breadth of coverage, listing five important aspects for each piece of equipment:
* area of application
* sizing guidelines
* capital cost including difficult-to-find installation factors
* principles of good practice, and
* good approaches to troubleshooting.
Extensive cross-referencing takes into account that some items of equipment are used for many different purposes, and covers not only the most familiar types, but special care has been taken to also include less common ones.
Consistent terminology and SI units are used throughout the book, while a detailed index quickly and reliably directs readers, thus aiding engineers in their everyday work at chemical plants: from keywords to solutions in a matter of minutes.

From the Back Cover:

Skilled operation, maintenance and troubleshooting are absolutely vital to the profitable operation of any chemical and other production plants. Engineers are therefore faced with the daunting task of keeping maintenance and trouble-shooting downtime to an absolute minimum in order to ensure continued profitability. Apart from the necessary engineering and trouble-shooting skills, they also need a handy, concise reference, allowing them to swiftly diagnose any given process.
This immense treasure trove contains hundreds of equipment symptoms, arranged so as to allow rapid identification and elimination of the causes. These rules of thumb result from the immense knowledge of experienced engineers collected and compiled by the author -- an engineer himself.
Unrivalled in its depth and breadth of coverage, for each piece of equipment this sourcebook lists five important aspects:
* area of application
* sizing guidelines
* capital cost including difficult-to-find installation factors
* principles of good practice, and
* good approaches to troubleshooting.
Extensive cross-referencing takes into account that some items of equipment are used for many different purposes, and covers not only the most familiar types, but special care has also been taken to include less common ones.
Consistent terminology and SI units are used throughout the book, while a detailed index quickly and reliably directs engineers in their everyday work at chemical plants: from keywords to solutions in a matter of minutes.
