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. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of rules of thumb in process design. It covers the nature of design, design constraints and design categories; the petroleum properties, parameters and definitions; the composition of petroleum, petroleum processing, hydrocarbon properties and characterization parameters; and the development of process design data and calculation methods that include process design tasks, sequence and process calculations methods. Further, this course will also discuss the refrigeration including its types of systems, estimating horsepower per ton, horsepower and condenser duty for specific refrigerants and refrigerant replacements; the ethylene/propylene cascaded system, steam jet type utilities requirements and ammonia absorption type utilities requirements; the gasification, feedstocks for gasification, features of gasification systems, commercial gasification systems and trace components in gasifier syngas; and the gas treating processes, chemical solvent processes, physical solvent processes, physical/chemical solvent processes, biological processes, solid bed scavengers and membranes.During this interactive course, participants will learn the vacuum systems, vacuum jets, typical jet systems, steam supply, measuring air leakage, time to evacuate, design recommendations and ejector specification sheet; the pneumatic conveying, types of systems, differential pressures and equipment sizing; the blending comprising of singlestage mixers, multistage mixers, gas/liquid contacting, liquid/liquid mixing, liquid/solid mixing as well as mixer applications, shrouded blending nozzle and vapor formation rate for tank filling; and the process evaluation, study and process definition, battery limits specifications, offsite specifications, capital investments, operating costs, economics and financing.
