What does a process design engineer need to know about process control? Here’s a quick introduction to what you need to know to be able to complete a process flowsheet and understand the impact of control on process hydraulics.

In 60 minutes, Towler explains the basics of process control and discusses how and when to apply them in your process design work. You’ll learn how to read and understand a P&ID diagram and put together a basic process control scheme. You’ll also learn how to figure out where controllers are needed as you design and size process equipment. By the end of this webinar, you’ll have a better idea of key process control considerations that must be taken into account during process design.   

Take a look at your agenda:

  • The basics of process control
  • Reading and understanding a P&ID diagram
  • How to put together a basic process control scheme
  • Where controllers are needed in the process
