Course Description   

Equipment design is vital in every industry. Correct design of equipment affects CAPEX and later OPEX, efficiency of equipment. This skills is an integral part of a chemical and mechanical enigneers training. However very few engineers actually engage in detail design in their careers. Front end and Detailed design is an specialized discipline in EPC companies.


This course is unique as in it walks an engineer with processs and procedures used in the industry's actual work place to do the detailed design. Apart from that the students acquire an understanding of both the theorectical method aand practical issues and considerations in desinging of an equipment eg, cost wise, corrosion issues, space availability issues,  process issues and technical design issues specific to each process. The course will also provide rules of thumb and common sense techniques and calculation method to be able to quickly solve day-to-day design problems.


Training Methodology


This training course is made up of a combination of:

·         Lectures

·         Video Presentations

·         Interactive Training Sessions/Practical Exercises

·         Group Discussion   


Who Should attend?

This course is intended for those concerned with the process plant performance and efficiency including planning staff, instrumentation & control staff, production & operation staff, process, electrical, mechanical and project engineers, panel operator, engineer and supervisor. Management can also appreciate the importance of the new tools available to achieve the plant objectives of today and meet the challanges of tomorrow
