The English edition of the well known reference book on Thermal Separation Technology is very useful for product development and industrial research as well as scientific research. Above all it is a reference for deeper understanding of the procedural context in process engineering.
The basic methods and techniques are described, based on the thermodynamics of heat and mass transfer and fluid dynamics in general. Thus, the practitioners find useful information on the selection, the design and operation of equipment. Important basics of thermal process engineering as described in detail include distillation, rectification, absorption, and crystallization. The authors show how basic approaches for fluid dynamics and kinetic processes can be applied in industrial processes.
