This new volume aims to be the most useful "go to" volume for the working engineer, scientist, or chemist who needs quick answers to daily questions about materials or chemicals and doesn't want to go on long searches through voluminous tomes or lengthy internet searches. Covering only the most commonly used chemicals in the most important processes in industry, this book includes industrial chemicals, such as gases, fuels, and water, which are not incorporated in most "comprehensive" books on materials and chemical properties. Safety plans and procedures that can be implemented by any engineer or plant manager by following the easy, step-by-step instructions in the book are also provided. It covers the most up-to-date information and safety guidelines, and provides reference guides showing you, step-by-step, how to handle chemicals and other important processes, such as fire drills, writing and implementing evacuation plans, and first responses to emergencies. This volume pinpoints the most common and easiest ways for the engineer to go about daily business safely, efficiently, and profitably, with no extraneous tables or theoretical treatises. A must have for any engineer, scientist, or chemist working with industrial chemicals.
