The 4th Edition of Applied Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants (volume one) will assist the engineer in analyzing problems, finding design methods and mechanical specifications to achieve the proper mechanical hardware to accomplish a process objective. S.I. units are introduced in some of the design problems, and added features are computer application with the Excel spreadsheet, process plant data sheets and heuristics for Piping, Pumps, Fans, Blowers and Vacuum Pumps, Refrigeration and Utility specifications. This revised edition features expanded chapters on fluid flow and safety requirements for chemical plants with design case study problems. There is new materials on Process Flow Diagrams, P & IDs, Cost Estimations and Cash Flows, and Instrument Sizing. All three volumes of Applied Process Design for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants serve the practicing engineer by providing organized design procedures, equipment suitable for application selection, and charts in readily usable form. A. Kayode Coker, is Chairman of Chemical & Process Engineering Technology department at Jubail Industrial College in Saudi Arabia. Hes both a chartered scientist and a chartered chemical engineer for more than 15 years. and an author of Fortran Programs for Chemical Process Design, Analysis and Simulation, Gulf Publishing Co., and Modeling of Chemical Kinetics and Reactor Design, Butterworth-Heinemann. *Provides improved design manuals of methods and proven fundamentals with related data and charts *Covers a complete range of basic day-to-day petrochemical operation topics with new material that updates the significant industry changes since 1995 *A classic in chemical and petrochemical plant literature
