Author’s purpose in presenting the third edition of this book continues
to be that of the previous edition: “to provide a vehicle for teaching,
either through a formal course or through self-study, the techniques of,
and principles of equipment design for, the mass-transfer operations of
chemical engineering.” As before, these operations are largely the
responsibility of the chemical engineer, but increasingly practitioners
of other engineering disciplines are finding them necessary for their
work. This is especially true for those engaged in pollution control and
environment protection, where separation processes predominate, and in,
for example, extractive metallurgy, where more sophisticated and
diverse methods of separation are increasingly relied upon.
