DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Two-Color Graphics is the latest installment in Rockport's series that includes Minimal Graphics, Touch Graphics, Large Graphics, Small Graphics, and Color Graphics. Two-color graphics offer a range of effects from somber and elegant to edgy and bold. More importantly, they're inexpensive to print, which perhaps explains why two-color printing is so widely used. Despite its popularity, however, two-color printing has a stigma of looking cheap compared to four-color pieces. This book puts that myth to rest by showing how dynamic effects can be achieved with simple, inexpensive two-color printing. Besides its simplicity, it has a style all its own, which can convey sophistication, elegance, and integrity. Included is a "color finder" section designed to show readers a variety of color combinations for various projects. Each featured project is also shown in thumbnail size in 15 to 20 different two-color combinations.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

While there is no "perfect" solution or absolute zero risk, engineering design can significantly reduce risk potential in the CPI. In Guidelines for Design Solutions to Process Equipment Failures, industry experts offer their broad experience in identifying numerous solutions to the more common process equipment failures including inherent safer/passive, active, and procedural solutions, in decreasing order of robustness and reliability. The book challenges the engineer to identify opportunities for inherent and passive safety features early, and use a risk-based approach to process safety systems specification. The book is organized into three basic sections: 1) a technique for making risk-based design decisions; 2) potential failure scenarios for 10 major processing equipment categories; and 3) two worked examples showing how the techniques can be applied. The equipment categories covered are: vessels, reactors, mass transfer equipment, fluid transfer equipment, solids-fluid separators, solids handling and processing equipment, and piping and piping components. Special Details: Hardcover book plus 3.5" diskette for use in any word processing program with design solutions for use in PHAs.
