Process Design Fundamentals

Course Details
UOP – Process Design Fundamentals

OVERVIEW
This course delivers practical insights into the principles of process design.

COURSE BENEFITS
Course participants will be able to:
  • Set up and solve heat and material balances
  • Systematically assess hydraulic circuits
  • Demonstrate competency in line sizing
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of existing equipment under new processing conditions
  • Generate requirements and equipment data sheets for new equipment
  • Critique third party designs

COURSE TOPICS
  • Applied thermodynamics and process modeling
  • Multi-component fractionation - process principles and parametric analysis techniques
  • Column sizing
  • Line sizing/hydraulics
  • Pumps and compressors
  • Heat exchangers (shell and tube, air coolers)
  • Fired heaters
  • Relieving systems

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Chemical engineers with less than two years of experience in the hydrocarbon processing industries; engineers transferring from allied engineers returning to the workplace who need a refresher on process design principles.

The course will be of particular benefit to those engineers who are responsible for rating the performance of existing equipment and systems at new processing conditions, conducting revamps, determining and specifying equipment, and auditing the work of third-party design engineers.
