Applicable to a broad range of technicians and industries and fully updated throughout, A Working Guide to Process Equipment, Fourth Edition, explains how to diagnose, troubleshoot, and correct problems with chemical and petroleum refining process equipment. Nine new chapters cover:Tray design details Shell-and-tube heat exchanger design details Relief valve system design Vapor lock and exchanger flooding in steam systems Steam generation operating and design details Wastewater strippers Thermodynamics -- how it applies to process equipment Centrifugal pumps -- reducing seal and bearing failures Hand calculations for distillation towers Vapor -- liquid equilibrium, absorption, and stripping calculations
Filled with examples and illustrations, this practical resource demonstrates how theory applies to solving real-world plant operation problems. Selected hand calculation methods are also provided.
Comprehensive coverage includes:
Distillation Tower Trays * Tower Pressure Control * Distillation Towers * Reboilers * Tower Internals * Instruments * Packed Towers * Steam and Condensate Systems * Bubble Point and Dew Point * Steam Strippers * Draw-Off Nozzle Hydraulics * Pumparounds and Tower Heat Flows * Condensers and Tower Pressure Control * Air Coolers * Deaerators and Steam Systems * Steam Generation * Wastewater Strippers * Vacuum Systems * Steam Turbines * Surface Condensers * Shell-and-Tube Heat Exchangers * Fired Heaters * Refrigeration Systems * Cooling Water Systems * Catalytic Effects * Centrifugal Pumps * Control Valves * Separators * Centrifugal Compressors and Surge * Reciprocating Compressors * Corrosion * Fluid Flow in Pipes * Super-Fractionation Stage * Computer Control * Field Troubleshooting
Here are the tables, formulas, charts, diagrams, figures, key methods and worked-out problems engineers in design, product development, operation, production, analysis, and economic evaluation must have for successful day-to-day problem solving.
This dynamic one-volume database provides reliable, ready-to-apply solutions to literally hundreds of engineering problems — formatted for convenient instant access and carefully culled from McGraw-Hill’s most popular and respected handbooks, textbooks, and specialized technical books.

During this period, Jodhpur is a princely city where kings traditionally offered land or an entire village as Zamindari to worthy citizens. Only a few families enjoyed the privilege of being Zamindars of a village and the Joshi family was one amongst them.
The protagonist Chhagan is part of this rather large family. He is one of the three children of Achaldas (father) and Issa (mother). His brother is Tejraj and his sister Aachuki, is married to Roopraj, they have a son Kesio and a daughter Inderi. Chhagan’s father is the youngest of the three brothers. The eldest being Moolraj, who is married to Ba. Udayraj, the next brother, is married to Nani. Govraj, Hari and Damodar are Udayraj’s sons.”
