CEP: July 2011 The July issue features pilot plants and includes features on mastering baffle tray capacity, reducing piloting time and cost, developing screening cost estimates, and much more. Editorial You may be a registered professional engineer required to earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to maintain your license. Maybe you are taking advantage of your employer's tuition-reimbursement program to earn an advanced degree... Read More Share Selecting the Proper Flare System July2011Back To BasicsAdam Bader, Wes Bussman, Charles E. Baukal Jr., P.E.Flares allow for the safe, effective disposal of gases and liquids, by acting as relief devices when a plant must quickly dispose of product within its system to prevent overpressurization and potential explosions. Don’t Let Baffle Tray Flood Baffle You July2011Reactions and SeparationsHenry Z. Kister, Matthew OlssonUse this new correlation based on window liquid velocity to predict baffle tray capacity. Reduce Piloting Time and Cost July2011Process DevelopmentDavid A. Berg, Michael T. ClearyPilot-scale experimentation is essential to establish a sound foundation for a new chemical processing unit. These best practices can reduce the time and cost involved in process development. Developing Screening Cost Estimates July2011Process DevelopmentRichard P. Palluzi, P.E.Making decisions based on estimates derived from weak data is counterproductive. Use this established methodology to prepare scoping and screening cost estimates for pilot plants quickly and accurately.
