About this book


This book provides a comprehensive look at industrial compressors. Readers can find a great deal of information based on long industrial experience, on a clear and well-founded approach to real-gas handling, and on solutions to many practical problems. "Process Centrifugal Compressors" supplies engineering contractors and users of industrial compressors with a better insight into the "how" and "why" of different design features, thus providing a solid basis for dealing with manufacturers. It also reveals the limitations and requirements of practical applications and economics by casting light on the day-by-day design practice. By combining a mathematical approach with practical experience and many examples, it fills in the gap between academic textbooks and volumes, offering encyclopaedic descriptions of fluid flow machines.
