Solid—Gas Separation presents a brief and highly technical account of the principles and technology of gas-cleaning. The book deals with three associated aspects of gas-cleaning: the relevant dimensionless groups, the efficiency of separation and the economics of gas cleaning. The text begins with the discussion of the principles of particle separation and classification of equipment; general characteristics of equipment; and dimensionless groups for modeling and equipment scale-up. Subsequent chapters are devoted to the examination of the efficiency of separation, aero-mechanical dry separators, scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, and filters. The last chapter deals with the economics of gas-cleaning equipment selection. Environmental and industrial engineers will find the text very useful.
