Process Flow Diagrams

Understanding Process Flow Diagrams (PFDs) is essential for chemical engineers, as well as anyone involved in the engineering community. To fully understand technical discussions and presentations, you must have a working knowledge of PDFs. In this webinar, Professor Barry M. Barkel fully explains Process Flow Diagrams, answering key questions such as: What is a Process Flow Diagram? What does it convey? How do you read a PFD? What standards make PFDs semi-universal? The webinar will benefit those inside and outside the process engineering community who need familiarity with PFDs as communication tools. It will also be of service to young engineers with limited experience reading engineering drawings.
