Book Details


The chemical industry processes a high proportion of its products in powder form, thus making the efficient, effective and safe handling and processing of powders of prime importance. Powders and Solids: Developments in Handling and Processing Technologies brings the reader right up-to-date with both newly-introduced commercial practices and results of recent fundamental research on the behaviour of model powders. Case studies are also included. Commencing with an overview of developments in the health and safety aspects of handling powders, the book then goes on to look at the new technologies being applied to powders and powder handling, followed by aspects of measurement and control in powder handling. It will be essential reading for all industrial practitioners, particularly those in the pharmaceutical industry, as well as all engineers working either in industry or research on processes involving solid and powder handling.
