Industrial Scale Application of Subcritical and Supercritical Fluids for Design of Products Excerpt :
Industrial Scale Application of Subcritical and Supercritical Fluids for Design of Products fills the gap between fundamentals and industrial implantation of various high-pressure process technologies. The book covers the design, start-up and maintenance of real industrial plants, also providing readers with insights on their construction and operational essentials. It is ideal for chemical engineers who operate high pressure units and different researchers who create supercritical fluid technology to solve problems surrounding product fractionation, product formulation, synthesis in SCF, and product development using supercritical fluids technologies. There are some books that describe high pressure technologies and research in the area of sub- and supercritical fluids, but this book presents fundamental data on thermodynamics and mass transfer, topics that are absolutely essential for the design of industrial plants. Includes thermodynamic and mass transfer data necessary for industrial plant design Explains the mechanisms of reactions in a supercritical fluid environment Lists numerous industrial processes for the production of many consumers products, like pharmaceuticals, food, etc.
