Air Pollution Control- Volume 1: Focus on Fugitive Emissions


SKU: CE122 Category:


This Chemical Engineering resource contains complete tutorial-style engineering articles. The collection provides recommendations for minimizing fugitive emissions from pumps, valves and piping systems through proper equipment selection and use of appropriate seals and gaskets.

Focus is on reducing the risk of potential dust explosions — an essential safety aspect for bulk-solids-processing operations that handle fine powders.

This guidebook also includes articles that discuss best practices for managing and modernizing plant revamps and capital-intensive projects.
