  1. The Eight Steps to Specify a Catalyst Bed

    Webinar

    This webinar outlines the eight basic steps in specifying a hydro-genation catalyst: performance specification, process configuration, catalyst selection, mass balance, heat balance, calculating catalyst volume, selecting the reactor diameter, and estimating life. Catalysts are essential in oil...

  2. Optimizing Adsorption Process Design and Operation

    Webinar

    This webinar describes new model-based approaches that allow the rapid and accurate design and operational analysis of complex adsorption cycles. Periodic adsorption processes, such as PSA or TSA, are widely used in industry as energy-efficient alternatives to cryogenic or absorptive separation...

  3. Transport Phenomena: Mass Transfer

    Webinar

    This webinar covers the basic concepts of Mass Transfer illustrating the key topics with practical examples. Concepts include the molecular mass transfer, Fick's Law, diffusion through pores, the differential equations of mass transfer, steady and unsteady diffusion, convective mass transfer. The...

  4. Introduction to Size Reduction of Bulk Solids

    Webinar

    Size reduction or comminution of bulk solids is a very common and important unit operation found across the process industries. Liberation of a key species (ores), improved chemical activity or bioavailability (catalysts, pharmaceuticals, and energy storage materials), better product handling...

  5. Selected Pressure Relief Systems Heuristics

    Webinar

    In this webinar, you learn heuristics for a few common overpressure scenarios including blocked pump outlet, low-pressure vent piping losses, fire relief, and more. Estimating relief loads for pressure relieving systems is usually straight-forward with clear guidelines provided in company standards...

  6. Assessing Sustainability with Metrics and Methods

    Webinar

    This presentation is about making an attempt to apply sustainability principles to engineering processes and products. Sustainability has been accepted as an organizing principle in most engineering disciplines. Industry and academia have also embraced the idea. Yet it is generally felt that not...

  7. Pressure Swing Adsorption: A Ubiquitous Gas Separation Technology

    Webinar

    This webinar provides an overview of the ubiquitous pressure swing adsorption (PSA) technology. Adsorption is classified as a unit operation in chemical engineering that exploits the ability of a solid surface to concentrate species selectively from a fluid phase onto its surface. Adsorption...

  8. Transport Phenomena: Heat Transfer

    Webinar

    This webinar provides an overview of the basic concepts of Heat Transfer illustrating the key topics with practical examples in the areas of energy conservation, conduction, convection and radiation. After an overview of the basic concepts including the mechanisms of heat transfer and the equations...

  9. Processing Challenges with Tight Oil

    Webinar

    This presentation provides insight into processing challenges with tight oil. Opportunity crudes from shale are more readily available in North America with incentives on cost. However, these typically lighter tight oil crudes don’t come without some processing challenges. Some of the challenges...
