Distillation
Principles and Practices
by Johann G. Stichlmair
and James R. Fair

This book provides distillation technicians with a uniquely comprehensive, up-to-date account of distillation methods currently employed in the oil, petrochemical, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.

Distillation begins with the principles of vapor-liquid equilibrium and the essential calculations for determining phase equilibria and equilibrium curves and continues on to practical discussions of virtually all modern distillation methods, including batch, single stage, multistage continuous, multistage batch, and others.

Industrial applications are described, including everything from crude oil distillation and argon recovery from air to water purification and ammonia recovery from wastewater. It also has Special sections dealing with the separation of azeotropic mixtures and the energy demand of distillation processes, as well as extremely well illustrated descriptions of practical equipment design and modern distillation control methods.

Distillation: Principles and Practice is an indispensable working resource for distillation technicians,engineers and chemical engineers working in the oil, petrochemical, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries.
