Chemical Engineering

Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers

Introduction

This course identifies the areas of chemical engineering that are most commonly encountered by the non-specialist with examples that will be drawn from a range of process industries including oil and gas processing, petrochemicals, chemical manufacturing. In this course you will:

  • Learn to interpret flow sheets 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 minimization and treatment
  • Learn how to control processes
  • Perform basic economic analysis of a project
  • Understand the safety and environmental responsibility on process engineers

Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Learn to interpret flow sheets 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 the advantages and 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

Target Audience

All those working in the chemical, petrochemical, oil and process industries with a need to understand and discuss issues with the chemical engineering specialists

These will include geo-scientists, petroleum engineers, production engineers, trainee process engineers, R and D chemists, plant chemists, plant operators, and economists
