Main Unit Operations in Chemical Engineering


Main Unit Operations in Chemical Engineering training course mainly focuses on the most essential unit operations utilized in Chemical and allied industries, specifically Oil and Gas Production Plants. Throughout the course, you will be given with five separate chapters dedicated to: 

  • Valve Unit Operation
  • Pump Unit Operation
  • Compressor Unit Operation
  • Gravity Separators
  • Heat-Exchangers

As you go over the course, you will experience the perfect animation of main unit operations and their design. You will start with Valve Unit Operation Working Principle and will get into its typesapplication areas. Then, IsolationControl and Check Valves will be discussed to strengthen the background information about this unit operation. The chapter will be concluded with the Control Valve Sizing session to apply what you have learned.

The next chapter after Valve Unit Operation is Pumps. There, you will start with classification of pumps and their selection and will learn about Pump HeadCavitationNPSH and its impact on pump performance. You will continue with Pump Performance and System Curves as another pump performance contributor and will complete the chapter with Multiple Pumps operated in Series or Parallel and Positive Displacement Pumps.

Third chapter within this training course is dedicated to Compressor Unit Operation, where you will learn the following topics in order:

  • Rotary and Reciprocating Compressors
  • Centrifugal and Axial Compressors
  • Compressor Power Requirement
  • Polytropic and Isentropic Compression
  • Compressor Performance Curve and
  • Compressor Capacity Control

The last two chapters will be about Gravity Separators and Heat-Exchangers, where you will start with the Working and Operating Principles of both devices and will get into the their Selection CriterionOperating Challenges and Design, respectively.

Who this course is for:

  • Chemical Engineers
  • Process Engineers
  • Junior Engineers
  • Design Engineers
