Introduction

Ref No:      REFPE045
Title:           Process Equipment Sizing & Selection    
Start Date: 12 September 2021  End Date: 16 September 2021  
Venue:        Dubai, UAE
Fee:             $4,500

In any of the 5 star hotels. The exact venue will be informed once finalized.

Owing to their important role in nearly all industrial processes, sizing and selection of new equipment like thermal equipment (boilers, steam heat exchangers, fired gas heaters…), rotating equipment (pumps, turbines, gas and air compressors ……), are critical to both process efficiency and investment. The course highlights the relation between processes demands and suitable equipment sizing and selection. The piping system design required for each equipment will be studied. The course presents the major types of these equipment and demonstrates their recent technological aspects for installation, operation, maintenance & troubleshooting.

Objective
  1. To lay out the major types of process plant equipment and process variables 
  2. To illustrate methods of estimating processes plant demand, such as:
    • Thermal energy and steam consumption 
    • Air consumption 
    • Boiler feed water treatment 
  3. Demonstration of advanced information in basic design issues for major equipment
  4. To present the main requirements for installation and good operability concerning each type of equipment 
  5. To study sizing and selecting of equipment properly
  6. To clarify the vital role of different types of maintenance regimes in successful and continuous production operation.
  7. To present examples of troubleshooting through some case studies
Audience

Engineers of any discipline, managers, technician, technologists, and other technical personnel.
