Fundamentals of the Kraft Recovery Process
Author H. Jeff Empie
This book details the chemical engineering fundamentals of the kraft recovery process, including mass and energy balances, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, phase separations, heat and mass transport phenomena, and reaction kinetics. Each kraft recovery unit operations, including multiple effect evaporation, recovery boiler operations, green liquor processing, causticizing, and white liquor processing is discussed in detail.
Sample problems are posed and detailed solutions are presented. Additional instructive process problems are included at the end of each chapter for analysis and solution by the reader. This book is ideal for senior or graduate level courses for pulp and paper, chemical, and mechanical engineers, as well as a valuable reference resource for practicing pulp mill engineers who want to better understand the kraft recovery process they operate each day.
