Heat Exchanger Modeling in Process Simulation

Heat exchanger design and operability play a major role in the energy use, yield, and profitability of most chemical process industries (CPI) plants. Process simulation allows the engineer to explore the tradeoffs among achieving the optimal process yield, conserving the most energy, and...

Particle Characterization

This article discusses particle size and shape and their importance to material handling in a wide range of unit operations. Particle size depends on how “size” is defined and measured; this article provides various definitions of particle size, explains how shape and size are related, and...

Instrumentation: Pressure Measurement, Part 2

This is a follow-up to the author’s March 2014 article, “Introduction to Pressure Measurement,” pp. 28–34, which described the basics of pressure measurement and provided general guidance on instrument selection, focusing on the type of instrument (sensor, transducer, transmitter, smart...
