Contents Notes
An overview -- What is process design? -- Particulate matter -- Cyclones -- Electrostatic precipitators -- Fabric filters -- Particulate scrubbers -- Auxiliary equipment : hoods, ducts, fans, and coolers -- A particulate control problem -- Properties of gases and vapors -- VOC incinerators -- Gas adsorption -- Gas absorption -- Biological control of VOCs and odors -- Control of sulfur oxides -- Control of nitrogen oxides -- A vapor control problem -- Mobile sources : an overview -- Air pollution and meteorology -- Atmospheric dispersion modeling -- Indoor air quality and control -- Control of carbon dioxide. A 25-year tradition of excellence is extended in the fourth edition of this highly regarded text. In clear, authoritative language, the authors discuss the philosophy and procedures for the design of air pollution control systems. Their objective is twofold: to present detailed information on air pollution and its control, and to provide formal design training for engineering students.
