Among those interested in drying are chemical engineers, energy specialists, and mechanical engineers. This book assists the process development engineer, the process engineer, and the plant engineer in selecting drying equipment. It discusses the criteria to be observed, the gathering of results of relevant laboratory measurements, the carrying out of small-scale tests (the results of which can be scaled up), and procedures for sizing equipment. Written by an author with over four decades in the process industries, this book brings an extensively practical approach for the engineer.
