Description

Process Equipment and Plant Design: Principles and Practices covers process design in the chemical engineering industry, dealing with the design of individual process equipment and its configuration as a complete functional system. Chapters cover typical heat and mass transfer systems and the equipment included in chemical engineering curriculums, such as heat exchangers, heat exchanger networks, evaporators, distillation, absorption, adsorption, and more. The book's authors also cover cooling towers and extraction and leaching, along with topics on process utilities and piping and hydraulics that include instrumentation and safety basics that supplement the equipment design procedure.

Other sections of the book discuss plant hydraulics and process vessels, heat transfer processes, plant auxiliaries, and engineered safety, along with examples of process design in complete plants.

Key Features

  • Serves as a consolidated resource for process and plant design, including process utilities and engineered safety
  • Bridges the gap between industry and academia by including practices in design and summarizing relevant theories
  • Presents design solutions as a complete functional system and not merely the design of major equipment
  • Provides design procedures as pseudo-code/flow-chart, along with practical considerations

Readership

Students in Chemical and Process Engineering specializing in process design and related fields, including pharmaceutical, food and bioprocess engineering, environmental engineering, mineral processing, process metallurgy, and production engineering; Graduate students and researchers in academia, and professionals in industry working in process design

About the Author

Subhabrata Ray

Subhabrata Ray: After obtaining undergraduate (1975) and postgraduate (1977) degrees in Chemical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India, Ray worked till 1986 in three refineries and the technical department at the HQ of M/s Indian Oil, the premier refining company in India. Thereafter, he worked with M/s TECHNIP-ESIA in France till he joined academics in 1988. Since then he has been teaching Process Equipment Design, Petroleum Refinery Engineering and other courses in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. He is a consultant to M/s Indian Oil Corporation, M/s Numaligarh Refinery, M/s IFB Agro Industries, M/s Hydrogen Energy LLC. (USA), etc. He is also involved in several industrial consultancy and government sponsored projects involving scale up of process and plant design. He regularly conducts courses for industry. Several students under his supervision have won the Acharya P.C. Ray award by the Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers for the best undergraduate design project in India. During his tenure in teaching, he has published more than fifty research papers in international peer reviewed journals. He also holds several patents.
