Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering

This programme considers the areas of chemical engineering, and will provide an understanding of the fundamentals to the nonspecialist

INTRODUCTION

Chemical engineering is at the heart of much of the chemical, oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. The chemical engineer is interested in the transportation and transformation of solids, liquids and gases, but must also be familiar with many of the other engineering disciplines including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation. Of specific importance are separation processes including distillation, heat transfer, hydraulics and fluid flow, reaction engineering, but also process control and economics. These are the fundamental principles of chemical engineering

This programme considers the areas of chemical engineering that are most commonly encountered, and will provide an understanding of the fundamentals to the nonspecialist, and a refresher to practising engineers, with examples that will be drawn from a range of process industries including oil and gas processing, petrochemicals, chemical manufacturing. In this conference you will:Learn to interpret flowsheets and process flow diagrams

Develop and understand mass and energy balances in process design

Learn about fluid flow, pumps and compressors, and mixing

Discuss heat transfer equipment and their design, including heat exchangers

Understand distillation and separations used in oil and gas processing

Discuss effluent minimisation and treatment

Learn how to control processes

Perform a basic economic analysis of a project

Understand the safety and environmental responsibility on process engineers

COURSE OBJECTIVE

Using case studies from the oil, gas and chemical industry to illustrate the material, participants attending the programme will

Learn to interpret flowsheets and process flow diagrams

Understand the use of mass and energy balances in process design

Gain a basic understanding of fluid flow, including pumping and mixing

Study examples relevant to the oil and gas industry

Design a heat exchanger and know advantages/disadvantages of different types

Understand distillation and separations used in oil and gas processing

Appreciate the need to control environmental pollution from industry

Learn how to control processes

Perform a basic economic analysis of a project

COURSE METHODOLOGY

In addition to formal lectures. videos and discussions, the participants will learn by active participation through the use of problem-solving exercises, group discussions and analysis of real-life case studies.
