Book Description

The book provides the whole horizon of process engineering and plant design from concept phase through the execution to commissioning of the plant in the real practice. Providing a complete industrial perspective, the book

• Covers the guidelines and standards followed in the industry and how engineering documents are generated using these standards

• Describes Hazardous Area Classification, Relief System Design, Revamp Engineering, Interaction with Other Disciplines, and Pre-commissioning and Commissioning

• Contains several illustrated practical examples, which clarify the fundamentals to a raw chemical engineer

• Includes description of a complete chemical project from concept to commissioning

Treating the topic from the perspective of an industrial employee with extensive experience in process engineering and plant design, it aims to aid chemical and plant engineers to deal with decision making processes on strategic level, management tasks and leading functions beside the technical know-how.
