Dynamic Simulation in Chemical Engineering


Dynamic simulation is an extension of steady-state process simulation whereby time-dependence is built into the models via derivative terms i.e. accumulation of mass and energy. The advent of dynamic simulation means that the time-dependent description and control of real processes in real or simulated time are possible. This includes the description of starting up and shutting down a plant, changes ... Read More »

Placing Dead Weight Support


This tip will give you a guideline for locating the supports in your piping system Locate dead weight supports using recommended spacing from the code (B31 etc.). Consider existing support points. Decrease span by half off equipment. Decrease span for concentrated loads. Support concentrated loads. Support offset loads. Decrease span for extra lagging or insulation. Locate supports at changes in ... Read More »

What is Oil Refinery ?


When talking about refinery, we need to be able to differentiate and identify an oil refinery from the edible oil refinery. Basically, the oil refinery (or petroleum refinery) is an industrial process plant where crude oil (from crude petroleum) is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as Gasoline Diesel fuel Asphalt base Heating oil Kerosene Liquefied petroleum ...

What do Petroleum Engineers do?


Petroleum Engineers are employed by oil or gas companies to design, test and implement efficient methods to extract petroleum products from the earth and sea floor. They spend most of their time making estimations because they can never see what is actually going on thousands of meters below the ground. They work closely with other professionals, such as geologists, to ... Read More »

Role of the Pipe Field Engineer in Safety


The Piping or Mechanical Field Engineer is a direct contributor to the safety of the work operations at the construction site. Since all safe work operations must begin with pre-planning, the Field Engineer makes a direct contribution to safety by reviewing the planned work with safety in mind. The Field Engineer is typically responsible to develop a detailed work package ... Read More »

About Globe Valves

About Global Valves

Overview: A Globe valves is a linear motion valve and are primarily designed to stop, start and regulate flow. The disk of a Globe valve can be totally removed from the flow-path or it can completely close the flow-path. Conventional Globe valves may be used for isolation and throttling services. Although these valves exhibit slightly higher pressure drops than straight=through ... Read More »
