Process Design Fundamentals (PDF)

June 3, 2019 - June 7, 2019 UOP Training Center, 95 E. Algonquin Rd, Bldg. D, Des Plaines, IL, 60017 USA
This course delivers practical insights into the principles of process design. It features a review of chemical engineering unit operations, discussion of design and performance characteristics of commonly-used equipment and case studies that deliver a broad perspective of the subject as well as an understanding of industrial engineering practices. Course content includes shortcut techniques, practical approaches to engineering problem solving, “rules-of-thumb” and guidelines that can be put into practice when participants return to their jobs. Teamwork is encouraged through collaboration on exercises, sharing work experiences and leveraging skills and knowledge. Optionally, the UniSim® process simulator can be incorporated to give students hands-on experience modeling refinery processes. Students use the simulator to apply the principles of thermodynamics, distillation and column design learned during the lecture portion of the class. This class is typically conducted one time a year. For more details contact:
