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.

In this volume, the author provides thermodynamic calculations with examples of gaseous mixtures of different natures.

This volume also discusses the principle of adsorption of gaseous impurities, practical data on adsorption and ion exchange and chromatography, the theory of drying and the theory of imbibition.

The author also provides methods needed for understanding the equipment 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.
