Book Description :

While there is no "perfect" solution or absolute zero risk, engineering design can significantly reduce risk potential in the CPI. In Guidelines for Design Solutions to Process Equipment Failures, industry experts offer their broad experience in identifying numerous solutions to the more common process equipment failures including inherent safer/passive, active, and procedural solutions, in decreasing order of robustness and reliability. The book challenges the engineer to identify opportunities for inherent and passive safety features early, and use a risk-based approach to process safety systems specification. The book is organized into three basic sections: 1) a technique for making risk-based design decisions; 2) potential failure scenarios for 10 major processing equipment categories; and 3) two worked examples showing how the techniques can be applied. The equipment categories covered are: vessels, reactors, mass transfer equipment, fluid transfer equipment, solids-fluid separators, solids handling and processing equipment, and piping and piping components. Special Details: Hardcover book plus 3.5" diskette for use in any word processing program with design solutions for use in PHAs.

Book Description :

Basic Process Engineering Control is based on the extensive experience of the authors in the field of industry, teaching and writing. The textbook showcases methods, problems, and tools used in this well-established fi eld of chemical engineering and goes beyond traditional process engineering by applying the same principles to biomedical processes, energy production, and management of environmental issues. Starting from the behavior of processes, Basic Process Engineering Control explains all determinations in “chemical systems” or “process systems”, such as the intricate inter dependency of the process stages, analyzing the hardware components of a control system, and the design of an appropriate control system for a process parameter or a whole process. Although mainly aimed at students and graduates, the book is equally interesting to chemical or process engineers in all industries or research and development centers. Readers will notice the similarity in approach from the system and control point of view between different fields, which might otherwise seem far from each other but share the same control philosophy.
