Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. Plant and Equipment Design still forms an integral part of the Chemical?s Engineer?s theoretical training. However very few engineers will actually engage in detail design during their careers. Detail plant and equipment design has become a specialized discipline with companies offering services such as Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) as a dedicated service (core business principle). This, however, does not take away the responsibility for correct and applicable design from the owner, and it is therefore essential for the plant Chemical Engineer to verify design details once it lands on his desk before approval for construction. Also, the Chemical Engineer will often be faced with plant and operational problems that need quick and reliable solutions as part of his normal day-today duties. This state-of-the-art course is designed to provide comprehensive understanding of process equipment design concepts and techniques. Process design methods and criteria are presented and discussed to familiarize engineers with practical techniques for selection, sizing and design of process equipment for refineries, petrochemical and related oil and gas processing plants. During the course period, participants will be trained in the use of rules-of-thumb and example problems on the course topics.The course will provide Chemical and Process Engineers with a lot of rules of thumb common sense techniques and calculation methods to quickly solve day-to-day design, operations and equipment problems. The practical tips, handy formulas, correlations, curves, charts, tables, and rules of thumb presented in this course will save engineers valuable time and effort. In addition to basic calculation procedures for design and rating of process equipment, design approaches in revamp of existing plant facilities are also discussed and guidelines provided. Each session will be conducted in a lecture/discussion format designed to provide intensive instruction and guidance.
