Drawing on Frank G. Kerry’s more than 60 years of experience as a practicing engineer, the Industrial Gas Handbook: Gas Separation and Purification provides from-the-trenches advice that helps practicing engineers master and advance in the field. It offers detailed discussions and up-to-date approaches to process cycles for cryogenic separation of air, adsorption processes for front-end air purification, and related process control and instrumentation.

The book uses SI units in accordance with international industry and covers topics such as chronological development, industrial applications, air separation technologies, noble gases, front end purification systems, insulation, non-cryogenic separation, safety, cleaning for oxygen systems, economics, and product liquefaction, storage, and transportation.
No other book currently available takes the practical approach of this book — they are either outdated, too theoretical, or narrow in focus. In a clear and effective presentation, Industrial Gas Handbook: Gas Separation and Purification covers the principles and applications of industrial gas separation and purification.

Page 6 - It is impossible for a self-acting machine unaided by an external agency to move heat from one body to another at a higher temperature.
Page 3 - It is the law of conservation of energy. Energy cannot be created or destroyed during a process, although it may be changed from one form to another.
Page 4 - Coefficient will depend upon the relative values of the terms in the numerator of the above expression. The value of the numerator is dependent upon the temperature and there is a fixed temperature at which the sign of the Joule-Thompson Coefficient changes. This temperature...
