-- Illustrates key concepts through a running example from the real world: the manufacture of benzene.
-- Covers design, economic considerations, troubleshooting and health/ environmental safety.
-- Includes exclusive software for estimating chemical manufacturing equipment capital costs.
This book will help chemical engineers optimize the efficiency of production processes, by providing both a philosophical framework and detailed information about chemical process design.
Design is the focal point of the chemical engineering practice. This book helps engineers and senior-level students hone their design skills through process design rather than simply plant design. It introduces all the basics of process simulation. Learn how to size equipment, optimize flowsheets, evaluate the economics of projects, and plan the operation of processes. Learn how to use Process Flow Diagrams; choose the operating conditions for a process; and evaluate the performance of existing processes and equipment. Finally, understand how chemical process design impacts health, safety, the environment and the community.
