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)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
