Part I covers reaction types used in the chemical industry. Part II covers the reactions and processes used to manufacturer hundreds of industrial chemicals. Flowcharts and diagrams are used extensively to illustrate processes.
Published by the Gas Processors Suppliers Association, EDH contains "basic design information together with data and procedures that can be used by field and plant engineers to determine operating and design parameters."
This handbook is available with the Library's subscription to Hydrocarbon Processing magazine. It contains flow diagrams and descriptions of more than 130 commercially viable gas processing processes from 49 licensors.
