SLS 2010 Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering 2.2 Process Designs ± A process design is the heart of a manufacturing project. ± It must be viable and hopefully efficient. ± It contains the essential information from which the project can be constructed. ± It is the result of a creative team effort involving many disciplines. ± Generally requires iteration. The creation of a process design is potentially the most exciting work an engineer can be involved with. The design represents the solution to a problem and is the heart of a manufacturing project. Whether it’s the introduction of a new wonder drug, or production of hydrogen and electrical power from coal, or a revamp at an existing facility, the viability of the process design, to a large extent, will determine the success of the venture. The development of a process design is a creative team effort involving many disciplines. It is most often an iterative process that is challenging and rewarding.

SLS 2010 Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Process Designs ± Key Elements of a Process Design z Design Basis z Process Details f Process Flow Diagram f Stream Data f Utility Balance and infrastructure impacts f Preliminary Plot Plan z Equipment Requirements z Alternatives Considered z Economic Analysis The design basis provides the underlying assumptions for the selected project. These may include experimental data, feed characteristics (rates and compositions), product rates and specifications, key equipment design parameters such as reactor space velocity, and relevant constraints, design guidelines, process limits, available utilities, etc. This must be presented for at least the project base case. In some instances, parametric or boundary cases are also provided. Industry has developed standards for specifying equipment requirements. A standard consists of recommended practices, design guidelines and forms for equipment data sheets. Manufacturers may also have specific requirements that supersede industry standards.

SLS 2010 Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Project Development Process ± A project is developed using a phased approach. ± Key deliverables are due at the end of each phase. ± Approval to proceed is sought by the project team at the end of each phase. ± A project can be killed at any point along the way. A project development process that is typical of that used in most industries will be described.
