  2. Troubleshooting Process Operations

    Drawing on his passion, training, and experience, Lieberman presents problems and troubleshooting techniques that are associated with specific processes, systems, and equipment, leading novice and practiced troubleshooters alike to the crux of malfunctions and failures. The fourth edition updates troubleshooting and design techniques, and adds seven new chapters with information on turbines, motors, heat exchangers, and environmentally friendly operations. Norm Lieberman sprinkles his troubleshooting guide with insightful and humorous anecdotes from 45 years in the petrochemical and refining industry.

    Features:
    * Nitty-gritty descriptions of common refinery and chemical plant problems and the diagnostic field observations, experiments, and calculations that reveal their origin
    * Troubleshooting checklists and references following each chapter
    * Practical advice for optimizing interactions with key plant operations personnel

  3. Heuristics in Chemical Engineering : Rule of Thumb

    Heuristics in Chemical Engineering
    Rule of Thumb for Engineers 
    Although experienced engineers know where to find information and how to make accurate computations, they also keep a minimum body of information in mind on the ready, made up largely of shortcuts and heuristics. The present compilation may fit into such a minimum body of information, as a boost to the memory or extension in some instances into less often encountered areas.
    Topics included
    COMPRESSORS AND VACUUM PUMPS CONVEYORS FOR PARTICULATE SOLIDS COOLING TOWERS CRYSTALLIZATION FROM SOLUTION DISINTEGRATION • DISTILLATION AND GAS ABSORPTION A  DISTILLATION AND GAS ABSORPTION B DISTILLATION AND GAS ABSORPTION C DRIVERS AND POWER REOCVERY EQUIPMENT  DRYING OF SOLIDS • EVAPORATORS EXTRACTION, LIQUID-LIQUID • FILTRATION FLUIDIZATION OF PARTICLES WITH GASES HEAT EXCHANGERS  INSULATION MIXING AND AGITATION PARTICLE SIZE ENLARGEMENT PIPING PUMPS REACTORS REFRIGERATION SIZE SEPARATION OF PARTICLES UTILITIES: COMMON SPECIFICATIONS VESSELS (DRUMS) VESSELS (PRESSURE) VESSEL (STORAGE TANKS)

  4. ADSORPTION OF REMAZOL BRILLIANT BLUE ON AN ORANGE PEEL ADSORBENT

    A novel orange peel adsorbent developed from an agricultural waste material was characterised
    and utilised for the removal of Remazol Brilliant Blue from an artificial textile-dye effluent. The adsorption
    thermodynamics of this dye-adsorbent pair was studied in a series of equilibrium experiments. The time to
    reach equilibrium was 15 h for the concentration range of 30 mg L-1 to 250 mg L-1. The adsorption capacity
    decreased with increasing temperature, from 9.7 mg L-1 at 20 °C to 5.0 mg L-1 at 60 °C. Both the Langmuir
    and Freundlich isotherm models fitted the adsorption data quite reasonably. The thermodynamic analysis of
    dye adsorption onto the orange peel adsorbent indicated its endothermic and spontaneous nature. Thus, the
    application of orange peel adsorbent for the removal of dye from a synthetic textile effluent was successfully
    demonstrated.

  5. liquid liquid extraction

    Liquid–liquid extraction also known as solventextraction and partitioning, is a method to separate compounds based on their relative solubilities in two different immiscible liquids, usually water and an organic solvent. It is an extraction of a substance from one liquid into another liquid phase.

  6. storage of flammable liquid in tanks

    Only approved containers and portable tanks shall be used for storage and handling of flammable liquids. Approved safety cans or Department of Transportation approved containers shall be used for the handling and use of flammable liquids in quantities of 5 gallons or less, except that this shall not apply to those flammable liquid materials which are highly viscid (extremely hard to pour), which may be used and handled in original shipping containers. For quantities of one gallon or less, the original container may be used, for storage, use and handling of flammable liquids.

  9. Piping Systems and Microbiological Contamination

    The following considerations are focused on the contamination of piping-systems especially in the food - and pharmaceutical industry with micro-organisms. The pipes will be seen as a biological system. With this approach it is possible to describe the factors which influence the growing of a population of micro-organisms like bacteria.
