By Martin J. Rhodes

Particle know-how is a time period used to consult the technological know-how and expertise with regards to the dealing with and processing of debris and powders. The creation of particulate fabrics, with managed homes adapted to next processing and functions, is of significant curiosity to quite a lot of industries, together with chemical and procedure, foodstuff, prescription drugs, minerals and metals businesses and the dealing with of debris in gasoline and liquid ideas is a key technological step in chemical engineering.

This textbook presents an exceptional advent to particle expertise with labored examples and routines. in keeping with suggestions from scholars and practitioners around the world, it's been newly edited and comprises new chapters on slurry delivery, colloids and wonderful debris, measurement expansion and the future health results of excellent powders. themes coated include:

  • Characterization (Size Analysis)
  • Processing (Granulation, Fluidization)
  • Particle Formation (Granulation, dimension Reduction)
  • Storage and delivery (Hopper layout, Pneumatic Conveying, Standpipes, Slurry Flow)
  • Separation (Filtration, Settling, Cyclones)
  • Safety (Fire and Explosion dangers, health and wellbeing Hazards)
  • Engineering the houses of Particulate platforms (Colloids, Respirable medications, Slurry Rheology)

This booklet is vital analyzing for undergraduate scholars of chemical engineering on particle expertise classes. it's also helpful supplementary examining for college students in different branches of engineering, utilized chemistry, physics, pharmaceutics, mineral processing and metallurgy. Practitioners in industries during which powders are dealt with and processed may perhaps locate it an invaluable start line for gaining an figuring out of the habit of debris and powders.
