Review – Rules of Thumb for Chemical Engineers

Branan’s useful and convenient handbook for chemical and process engineers (at a bargain price) will be much appreciated by students and practitioners… (American Reference Books Annual)

…this book is a handy reference tool for preliminary designs, and has some very useful information on several aspects of plant operation. (Chemical Engineering)

Carl Brannan’s book provides a huge amount of valuable information on a wide variety of chemical engineering applications from sizing pipelines to economic evaluation of process options. (IChemE: Institute of Chemical Engineers)
