JOSHIs Process Equipment Design By V.V.Mahajani
The emphasis in this fourth revised edition is on mechanical design, as in the earlier editions, and not on process design. In this edition, an attempt has been made to eliminate all types of errors missed out in earlier editions. The chapters have been revised wherever necessary.
Audience of the Book :
This book has been designed for Chemical Engineering students to introduce them to mechanical design of commonly used process equipment in Chemical Process industry.
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.All numerical problems have been reworked on to make them more comprehensive without
altering the main definition.
2.Illustrations have been presented to appreciate equipment, particularly the mechanically agitated reactor.
