This article describes a widely used shortcut distillation method commonly referred to as the Fenske-Underwood-Gilliland (FUG) method.
Vapor Liquid separators are one of the most common types of process equipment. This article provides step-by-step procedure for two phase vertical vapor liquid separator design.
Pump is a most common equipment used in a chemical plant to transfer fluid from one location to another. This article shows how to do pump sizing calculation to determine differential head required to be generated by pump based on suction and discharge conditions.
The Joback method is a group contribution method which calculates thermophysical and transport properties as a function of the sum of group parameters. It uses a very simple and easy to assign group scheme.
In Bell Delaware method, the fluid flow in the shell is divided into a number of individual streams. Each of these streams introduces a correction factor which is used to correct heat transfer coefficient and pressure drop across the shell. This article gives step-by-step guidance on doing heat exchanger rating analysis based on Bell-Delware method.
