Chemical Process Analysis and Design for Multiparticle Systems

  • Robert W. Bartlett


Many important metallurgical unit operations involve chemical reactions between solid particles and one or more components of a fluid phase. Leaching, roasting, gaseous reduction, and other gas-solid reactions are examples. Most commonly, the particles were produced by previous grinding and particle-size classification operations, usually on minerals.
