Preface -

In the past, the theory of distillation and rectification has appeared in great detail in the form of both single publications and monographies. However, until now, this particular field has lacked a book on thermal separation processes which concentrates on the practical application, design and planning of total plants from an industrial point of view. It was therefore the author's aim in writing "Distillation Engineering" to cover the industrial side of distillation and rectification. Following publication of the German edition in 1973, the great demand for this book confirmed that this intention was right.

The increasing use of distillation apparatus and plants in the field of technology and environmental protection, particularly in the chemical and allied industries, justified the inclusion in the American edition of a complete chapter concerning distillation technology in environmental protection. Furthermore, the author also felt it necessary to discuss Vacuum Distillation in greater detail. In addition:to this, certain chapters have been extended in this edition in order to include new industrially significant findings which have been revealed in the light of further developments during the last few years.
