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 a practical guide for choosing the devices and the flow rate and parameters in the size reduction of divided solids.

The size reducing principles are presented and their application to plant products is used as an example, taking into account the influences of heat and humidity.

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.


1. Grinding: Principles and Theories.
2. Grinding Energy.
3. Ball and Rod Mills.
4. Crushers and Grinders Except Ball Mills and Rod Mills.
5. Choice in Comminution Equipment: Mechanical Plant Processing
