Chemical and Process Plant Commissioning Handbook: A Practical Guide to Plant System and Equipment Installation and Commissioning, Second Edition, winner of the 2012 Basil Brennan Medal from the Institution of Chemical Engineers, is a guide to converting a newly constructed plant or equipment into a fully integrated and operational process unit. The book is supported by detailed, proven and effective commission templates and includes extensive commissioning scenarios that enable the reader to good commissioning practices. Sections focus on the critical safety assessment and inspection regimes necessary to ensure that new plants are compliant with OSHA and environmental requirements.

Martin Killcross has comprehensively brought together the theory of textbooks and technical information obtained from sales literature to provide engineers with what they need to know before initiating talks with vendors regarding equipment selection.
