The fourth edition of "Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants, Volume 2" builds upon the late Ernest E. Ludwig's classic chemical engineering process design manual. Volume Two focuses on distillation and packed towers, and presents the methods and fundamentals of plant design along with supplemental mechanical and related data, nomographs, data charts and heuristics. The Fourth Edition is significantly expanded and updated, with new topics that ensure readers can analyze problems and find practical design methods and solutions to accomplish their process design objectives. It is a true application-driven book, providing clarity and easy access to essential process plant data and design information. It covers a complete range of basic day-to-day petrochemical operation topics. It is extensively revised with new material on distillation process performance; complex-mixture fractionating, gas processing, dehydration, hydrocarbon absorption and stripping; and, enhanced distillation types.
