Appendix A: Additional
Selected Reading
The following is a list of books and publications that are often seen on the shelves
of professional air pollution control personnel. For more detailed information about
a particular product, application, or gas cleaning technique, these references will be
of great value to you.
A listing of the details of the individual publications is at the end of this appendix.
inDustrial Ventilation: a manual of reCommenDeD praCtiCe
This classic work is a valuable reference regarding gas collection and movement
techniques. In print since 1951, it contains information regarding collection hood
sizing, conveying velocities, ductwork friction losses, contaminant exposure limits,
and the ventilation aspects of industrial hygiene.
air pollution enGineerinG manual
As an update of the old AP-42 U.S. government publication regarding the applica-
tion of air pollution control devices, this essential resource contains a detailed com-
pendium of application descriptions by industry written by a variety of experienced
designers and application engineers. A wealth of practical and useful information is
contained therein.
fan enGineerinG
Produced by Howden Fan Company, this power-packed book contains excellent
information regarding gas ow rates, gas-moving devices (such as fans), air pollu-
tion control hardware, psychometrics, and related air/gas properties.
inDustrial researCh serViCes psyChrometriC tables anD Charts
If you are not familiar with the properties of air and the moisture it can carry,
this book by Zimmerman and Lavine (1953) might appear a bit daunting. Though
computerized gas mixture property predicting programs are now available (see
Psychrometric Problem Solving Program under the “Publication Details” section
that follows), the Psychrometric Tables and Charts are still in daily use by air pollu-
tion control professionals. With these charts and tables, one can accurately predict
gas mixture properties that form the basis of gas cleaning system design.

the mCilVaine sCrubber manual
Actually, this is a comprehensive manual in the form of multiple binders plus a news-
letter all available on a subscription basis. It is excellent for people or rms who deal
with air pollution control problems repeatedly during the year. It is of great value
as well for people who must keep up to speed with the latest advances in pollution
control. Highly recommended.
Cameron hyDrauliC Data
Particularly useful regarding wet scrubbers, this classic reference provides excellent
information regarding pumping, piping, and frictional losses.
mass transfer operations
Few books on mass transfer are as widely used as this famous book by Robert E.
Treybal. Often used as a textbook, it is found on the shelves of pollution control pro-
fessionals or process designers whose job it is to design equipment that moves a gas
(or heat) into or out of a liquid.
Various Corrosion GuiDes
Too numerous to mention specically by name, a number of pump and/or piping
materials suppliers publish corrosion guides for the application of their products.
These are guides, however, and do not offer guarantees of material of construction
applicability. The suggested thing to do is accumulate a variety of them and look for
a consensus as to materials deemed suitable for the particular application. A few of
the more popular guides are listed in the following section.
The following is a list of publication details for the items mentioned above plus a few
other periodicals and resources you may consider for your library.
