This guide to plant design and machinery construction and operation is written by one of the pioneers in the field. It offers a comprehensive overview on processes, machines, and plant layouts for the production of synthetic (man-made) fibers from an engineering point of view. Detailed technical drawings, plus numerous formula and diagrams, illustrate the entire fiber-technical knowledge for the design of various production steps, from raw materials through polymerization, and spinning to textured and technical fabrics.
This unique handbook is a treasury of knowledge for the expert, an indispensable adviser in solving day-to-day problems, and a must on the shelf for every library.
Contents: - Polymer Specific Processes - Theoretical and Experimental Principles - Plants, Equipment, and Machines - Special Processes and Plants - Auxiliary Plants and Equipment - Auxiliary Devices, Calculations, and Constructions - Waste Processing and Recovery - Textile Testing and Properties of Synthetic Fibers - Conversion Factors and Fiber Related Tables
"After more than 7 years of intensive work the author presents a reference book which is the only one of its kind - truly a 'Fiber Bible' - which should have its place on the desk of every synthetic fiber expert and will undoubtedly be an indispensable adviser for the every-day practice."
