Description / Abstract:

The only material/heat balance book for materials processing applications This completely revised Third Edition provides a clear, comprehensive treatment of the use of mass balance and stoichiometry techniques, and the application of the First Law of Thermodynamics, to the production and processing of mineral, metallic, and ceramic materials. The book covers the initial treatment of ores and scrap to the production of advanced materials, with extensive use of spreadsheet techniques for making material and heat balance calculations. The accompanying CD contains detailed notes on the construction and analysis of metallurgical flowsheets by Dr. Eric Grimsey of Curtin University, Australia. Given the current challenge to use materials and energy efficiently, it is an essential resource for everyone interested in materials processing. Key Features of the Third Edition: Treatment of the AES and SI system of units, including conversion software Construction of flowsheets, their presentation, and Degree of Freedom analysis The statistics of measurement and sampling, regression analysis of data, and experimental design Over 150 text and software examples worked out in detail and an in-depth analysis of five case studies The use, optimization, and conservation of energy in materials processing The equilibrium constant and reaction kinetics as process restrictions Spreadsheet templates for combustion, flame temperature, process control, and Wobbe index calculations The use of a thermodynamic database in the derivation of sensible heat, enthalpy of formation, and reaction equilibrium expressions A CD containing an extensive thermodynamics database, and specially-developed material and heat balance software capable of handling multi-reactor flowsheets with recycle and bypass streams, counter-current flow, heat exchangers, and time-dependent composition changes
