Summary

Experimental Methods and Instrumentation for Chemical Engineers is the first practical guide for instrumentation and experimental methods, necessary for chemical engineers - research engineers/students, process engineers (designing and maintaining plants), consultants, etc. This book combines experimental measurements and instrumentation together with statistics with pertinent examples. Throughout this book, Patience examines all aspects of engineering practice and research. The principles of unit operations, transport phenomena, and plant design form the basis of this discipline. Experimental Methods and Instrumentation for Chemical Engineers integrates these concepts with statistics and uncertainty analysis to define what is absolutely necessary to measure and control how precisely and how often. Experimental Methods and Instrumentation for Chemical Engineers is divided into several themes, including the measurement of pressure, temperature flow rate, physico-chemical properties, gas and liquid concentrations and solids properties. Throughout the book, the concept of uncertainty is discussed in context, and the last chapter is dedicated to designing and experimental plan. The theory around the measurement principles is illustrated with examples. These examples include notions related to plant design as well as cost and safety. Contains extensive diagrams/photos, and other illustrations as well as manufactures equipment and descriptions, with up to date, detailed drawings and photos Includes exercises at the end of each chapter, enabling the reader to understand the problem by solving real life examples Broad and breadth coverage of the subject matter. Covers research and plant application and includes the new emerging technologies that are little discussed in other sources
