Process Equipment Design

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee and NPTEL via Swayam


Chemical process plants include a number of important equipment such as reactors, distillation columns, absorbers, heat exchangers, evaporators, crystallizers, etc. Design of such equipment should be carried out a priory to set-up a process plant and thus, it is the basic step in a chemical process. The present course enables one to learn about the complete process design of Heat Exchanger, Condenser, Reboiler, Crystallizer, Evaporator, Packed column and Distillation column. Further, mechanical design of distillation column is also illustrated in this course.
Undergraduate students of Chemical Engineering. However, this course will also be helpful for those who have substantial industrial experience while working in chemical processes and designing process equipment.PREREQUISITES : Basic knowledge of Heat Transfer and Mass transferINDUSTRIES SUPPORT :Any chemical process plant
