Who Should Attend
The course is mainly directed to those just entering the Process Engineering field including engineers, chemists and technicians in the areas of:
• Plant Operation
• Process Scale-Up
• Process Development
• Process System Troubleshooting
Experienced process engineers, however, can profit from the concise reviews and exposure to the innovative concepts, including short-cut methods. The course will also benefit those who supervise process engineers but who have had no formal training in the field.
This course has been designed to provide the knowledge you need to get the job done. It fills the void between the curriculum of a theoretical education and the practical demands of applied process engineering or processmechanical engineering. The course material is structured to follow the major responsibilities of a process engineer as a project progresses. Therefore, the course reviews such topics as: process engineering diagrams, frictional and pressure drop calculations for incompressible, compressible and complex fluid flows, heat transfer calculations methods and the sizing and economic selection of pumps, fans, blowers, compressors, material selection for piping and equipment, process and storage tanks, mixing equipment, heat transfer equipment and electrical equipment. Emphasis is placed on simplifying methods, shortcut techniques and mnemonic devices throughout, making the applications of process engineering as practical as possible. There is also a brief introduction to motor controls, and instrumentation and control.
Attendees are encouraged to bring questions not covered in the outline. This course is highly interactive and the focus can be adjusted according to the needs of the participants.
