Tuesday, February 17, 2009 Estimating total capital cost (16.4) 1) Order of magnitude estimate a. Based on bench scale lab data b. Crude estimate 2) Study estimate a. Based on preliminary design (e.g HYSYS flowsheet) 3) Preliminary estimate a. Detailed process design studies leading to optimization process design 4) Definitive estimate: detailed design (drawings, cost estimate of each equipment, etc) Order of magnitude estimate -Compare feasibility of different production routes -Accuracy: I 50% 1) Compute production rate factor F PR = ( (Main production flow rate, lbs/yr)/(10 million)) 0.6 2) Module cost for each major piece of equipment C M = F PR F M x $130000 F M : Material factor e.g. carbon steel: 1.0 copper : 1.2 stainless steel: 2.0 3) Sum equipment costs and multiply by F PI (piping, automatic controls etc)
