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 is both theoretical and practical. Focusing on emulsions of one liquid into another liquid and the dispersal of a divided solid into a liquid as well as a gas into a liquid, this book presents examples of mixtures of two powders, the process of dissolution of a powder in a liquid and the homogenization of a pasty product.

The types of devices needed, the criterion for homogeneity, the expended mechanical power, the flow processed and the time required for the operation are also discussed.

The author 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.


1. Stirring in a Vat: Homogenization of Pasty Products.
2. Dispersion and Dissolution of Powders.
3. Mixture of Divided Solids: Choice of Mixing Devices.
