Handbook of Pneumatic Conveying Engineeringby David Mills
Synopses & Reviews
The Handbook of Pneumatic Conveying Engineering provides a complete understanding of every facet of pneumatic conveying system selection, design, maintenance, and optimization. This reference compares various conveying system types, components, and flow mechanisms and offers an abundance of practical guidelines, diagrams, and procedures for expert guidance in plant maintenance, operation, and control. It presents ass tables, graphs, and equations in US engineering units and supplies clear graphical presentations of processes described in the text. Revealing approaches to test, evaluate, and correct both old and newly constructed systems, it includes models and methods for airflow control.
Book News Annotation:
Provides practical information for the design and operation of systems that use air pressure and vacuum to transport powdered and granular materials through pipelines in factory, site, and plant situations. Two professors with the University of Newcastle in Australia and one with the Indian Institute of Technology describe the various types of feeding devices, air movers, filters, and pipelines, and explain how pipe bore, conveying distance, pressure available, conveying air velocity, and material properties affect material flow rate. Later chapters address the specifications required by systems for removing ash generated by coal power plants, conveying food and chemical products, handling alumina powders, and loading cement and drilling mud powders.
