This eLearning course provides students with a first introduction to Modular Chemical Process Intensification (MCPI) We start with definitions and classifications of MCPI and Process Intensification (PI) and design for MCPI, and then move up to component manufacturing and modular skid construction.
Module 1 introduces a taxonomy for classifying PI and MCPI technologies and demonstrates Time Scale Analysis as a tool for identifying PI opportunities. It also introduces Microscale-based Chemical Process Technology as one design approach for MCPI.
Module 2 explores the dependencies or interconnections between chemical process development and component manufacturing. We discuss how manufacturing process capabilities can strongly influence the design of an MCPI component.
Lastly, Module 3 looks at modularity in the form of a process skid, shares considerations when working with an EPC to construct a skid module, and shows examples of PI and MCPI successes. The course wraps up by sharing some important questions to ask when beginning to evaluate if MCPI could provide benefits for your chemical process or within your company.
Matthew Y. Coblyn is a research associate for the School of Chemical, Biological, & Environmental Engineering at Oregon State University. His research focuses on microscale-based chemical process development, with expertise in characterization of microfluidic systems and design and fabrication of microscale lamina plate technology.
Dr. Coblyn works with Prof. Goran Jovanovic’s process development group and both are co-PIs on the RAPID Multiphase Microchannel Separator. He has worked on developing microscale technologies for applications funded by Department of Energy’s ARPAe,...Read more
