*****"The art and practice of design cannot be learned from books. The intuition and judgement necessary to apply theory to practice will come only from practical experience." --Ray Sinnott, Ch. Engineer, Manual Co-author*This articulate systematic guide to Chemical Engineering Design introduces the subject of a graduate level study of the process design principles, practice and plant economics, and serves as a hand book for Chemical project Engineers. The expert authors come from UOP, pioneering licensors of oil and gas (catalytic) processes, and Chemical manufacturer Dupont, who eloquently explore hands on experience in design, and evaluation of CPI/HPI projects. Their approach is in two parts, Process Design: the software, and Plant Design, projecting in detail the hardware selection, design and specification, a mere 1300 pages, in twenty chapters.In Part I, Process Design unfolds as the 'engineering package, set by owners to engineering contractors, in a call for tenders. This covers the design basis, and the project structure Flow chart, and describes the design documents. Starting with PF development to a P&I D as the main detailed piping and instrument diagram. two main roots are discussed, the grass roots and modification of existing units (Revamp), PFD review slightly different, in both cases. Process reviews are discussed on all levels. Chapter 3 discusses utilities and energy management/ recovery. Process Simulation follows covering programs, physical properties, and optimization.Chapter 5 cover Process control, starting from P&I D, describing Alarms, Safety trips & interlocks, and computer control systems (initiated in the 70's, with problms and references.
