CRC Press Hemeon's Plant & Process Ventilation
Offer updated on 9/27/2021
Industrial hygienists and ventilation engineers know the name well: W.C.L. Hemeon. Since 1955 those professionals have frequently looked to Hemeon's Plant & Process Ventilation for essential information on industrial ventilation. Hemeon's longtime influence and inspiration has now prompted D. Jeff Burton-a prolific author on industrial ventilation himself-to produce a Fourth Edition of the classic industrial ventilation text.While retaining Hemeon's distinctive writing style conveying practical information in vivid phrasing Burton has added extensive new information to recognize today's technology and techniques.Essential fundamentals of ventilation covered in the book include an explanation about the dynamic properties of airborne contaminants and the principles of dispersion mechanism and local exhaust. Advanced applications are also examined in detail particularly system design dust control and troubleshooting.Along with providing essential background on the two primary types of workplace ventilation-general and local exhaust-Hemeon's Plant & Process Ventilation also aims for mutual understanding between the health-oriented priorities of industrial hygienists and the practical applications for maximum efficiency considered by ventilation engineers.Have a well-thumbed dog-eared copy of Hemeon's Plant & Process Ventilation? Now is the best time to retire it in favor of this revised-and respectful-edition. Those who are new to Hemeon's approach will discover what other professionals have known more than 40 years: Hemeon offers some of the most effective ways to control environmental contaminates through proper ventilation techniques.
