Designing process plants is a complex and demanding process. The design of plant layout is one of the most important tasks before plant construction. A successful plant layout will not only reduce capitalized cost, but also help to improve the safety of the plant and reduce its environmental impact. Additionally, easy access to individual items of plant equipment is essential for effective operation and maintenance.

This course will familiarize participants with all aspects of process plant major equipment and piping systems including the following topics: preliminary sizing and mechanical design of process equipment; equipment configuration; development of plot plans; multi-objectives and optimization of plant layout; layout, design procedures, and practices involved in the location of equipment and layout of associated piping systems; operability, maintainability, safety and environmental implications, and compliance with applicable regulations, codes and standards. The course will discuss methods for achieving a business-focused facility and minimizing life-cycle costs, highlighting effective interaction between various engineering disciplines (civil, electrical, mechanical, instrumentation, and control). The main aim of this course is to familiarize participants with all aspects of piping systems and the key aspects of the layout and design of process equipment and piping systems.

Who Should Attend?

Engineers and designers involved in plant design activities; project engineers; process engineers, piping fabricators, contractors, and suppliers; piping design and analysis personnel; and, recent engineering graduates in all disciplines
