This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.

This volume focuses on the process of distillation. Using both practical and theoretical examples, the author describes the various reactions and steps involved in separating out the components of a mixture to attain predefined levels of purity.

By investigating different types of liquids, an array of column sizes and the plates involved in distillation, the reader will gain a wide understanding of the physics of liquids.

The author also provides methods needed for understanding the machinery used in applied thermodynamics in the hope of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves.

The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.


1. Theoretical Plates in Distillation, Absorption and Stripping – Choice of Type of Column.
2. Design and Performances of Gas–Liquid Perforated Plates.
3. Design and Performances of Liquid–Gas Packed Columns.
4. Batch Distillation.
