This book is for the engineer designing, optimizing, or troubleshooting systems using sprays. Hundreds of applications in the chemical process industries use sprays to achieve specific and critical results. Examples include spray drying, gas quenching and conditioning, tank cleaning, and filter cake washing. Nearly all sprays can be improved or optimized by applying engineering design and application of the art and science of sprays. Practical perspective and insight whether you are new to spray technology and science or a seasoned practitioner is based on the authors 25 years of experience applying sprays in the chemical industry. The spray fundamentals section covers spray characteristics, qualitative and quantitative measures including drops size measurement, spray physics and modeling spray systems. There are six chapters covering the basic and more exotic spray technologies (hydraulic nozzles to electrodynamic atomization). Each of these chapters show the types of nozzle available and provide performance correlations. Three chapters cover design of systems and selection on nozzles. This section covers the effects of fluid physical properties on the spray that is produced, this critical issue for process applications due to the wide range of surface tension and viscosity of fluids sprayed. Designing for highly reliable systems is more critical in process applications. This section also has practical perspective to design control systems for spray systems, a topic not covered in other spray technology books. Example calculations throughout the 15 chapters enable the reader to use the equations to solve some problems immediately. There are 140 line drawings and annotated photographs produced by the author to provide a consistent style throughout.
