5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intro to Water Treatment Nov. 5 2009
By Water Guru - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For those entering the field of water treatment with a chemical engineering or chemistry background, this guide provides an invaluable first look at water sources, treatment technologies and major applications. Specialist books exist to cover every subtopic in more depth if one needs it. I would recommend starting with this as an entry text, then moving to a water plant design book and then finally for your collection a specialist guide in a subdiscipline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boiler Protection. April 22 2014
By glenn - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book to have the most up todate knowlege on Boiler feedwater treatment, which Nalco covers comprehensively. The site I am employed at also has cooling towers so the information on treatments for them has also proved useful. I highly recommend this book to anybody working in a manufacturing industry as an operator such as myself or a maintenance technician.They will find the information invaluable.
5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Reference Sept. 7 2013
By D. Oliver - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The text is sufficiently technical and comprehensive in its subject matter to cover the subject well. It is written for someone with a science or technical background, but it is not too theoretical, so that an advanced chemistry degree is required for understanding.

NALCO puts out a good book here. I was already familiar with it which is why I bought it. It's just technical enough for me, easy to read.
