Reader´s comments on “Process Centrifugal Compressors”
by Klaus H. Lüdtke,
This is a great book if you want to learn about process centrifugal compressors. Friendly writing and detailed information. This book is as advertised. I would have given 5 stars, but there is no page that has the nomenclature collected. It must be drawn from the text (G. Gunter - 4.0 von 5 Sternen, good info, 8. März 2007, veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com).
This book helps people like me that need to understand and handle the
terms, theory and practice of centrifugal compressors quickly and that do not
have a good knowlege before. The author presents himself like an old professor
who today is very difficult to find, friendly, like a father tells his sons or
students something important to their lives
(Guillermo Billordo - 5.0

Brief but clear descriptions on the theoretical and practical issues are covered in the text. Especially the functions and features of compressor components, compressor design constraints, and load control methods seem very helpful for the understanding of the compressor system configuration. Lots of mathematical approaches for the mechanical design of components and practical case studies along with application examples can also be found. Congratulations for you people and for him for this terrifc work (Stefano Kim – 4.0 von 5 Sternen, 31. Juli 2012, veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com).
Ich soll ein Berechnungsprogramm erstellen für die Auslegung von Radialverdichtern. Wenn man ein bisschen recherchiert dann findet man das Buch im Internet. Ich habs mir besorgt und finde, dass es sehr hilfreich ist. Überhaupt das ganze Buch ist sehr lehrreich. Dafür vielen Dank (Fatih Ugur, FH Köln).
By far the most useful publication in this field and I appreciate the depth of the original material. We use your book most weeks and we regularly recommend that our clients buy a copy (Chris Robinson, UK).
I find it an excellent overview of process compressor engineering. A real labour of love and in your book this effort shines through. I have recommended it for my students (Prof. Casey, TU Stuttgart)
Very complete, practical and concise! (Bill Forsthoffer, USA).
Congratulations! I will use it in my courses on compressors (Prof. Seume, TU Hannover).
Very useful book, will use it for my educational work (Prof. Witkowsky, Poland).
Excellent. Many thanks for contributing to our machinery world (Shatri Quraisy, Qatar).
Specific and informative document. The reader´s benefits outweigh the long hours spent to produce it (Keith Parma, Trinidad).
An excellent addition to anyone´s turbomachinery library (Bob De Maria, USA).
The book opened new horizons for me as a compressor purchaser. One of the best I have ever read about centrifugal compressors. The masterpiece precisely addresses the issues that a user is faced during equipment estimation, design audits and rerating applications in oil, gas, petrochemical and chemical industries. It has so many new subjects, such as real-gas thermodynamics, which other books are tightlipped on (M. Taherimoghaddam, Tehran).
