Re: Recent literature on pilot plants20 April 2006 at 1:29pmA good overview can be found in both the Kirk-Othmer Encyclopedia of the Chemical Process Industries and Ullman's Encyclopedia.
You can also look for the following books:
Pilot Plant Design, Construction, and Operation
Pilot Plant and Laboratory Safety
There are also some of my articles available:
Improving Pilot Plants (Chemical Engineering, June, 2001)
Cost Effective Pilot Plant Design and Construction (Chemical Engineering, April, 2000)
Succeed at Crash Pilot Plant Construction (Chemical Engineering Progress, Dec, 1997)
Choosing The Right Pilot Plant (Chemical Engineering Progress, Jan, 1991)
Pilot Plants (Chemical Engineering, March, 1990)
AIChE also runs three courses on Pilot Plants (#192, 193 and 244). They can check the AIChE website (www.aiche.org) for details.
