Description

Avoid wasting time and money on recurring plant process problems by applying the practical, five-step solution in Process Engineering Problem Solving: Avoiding "The Problem Went Away, but it Came Back" Syndrome. Combine cause and effect problem solving with the formulation of theoretically correct working hypotheses and find a structural and pragmatic way to solve real-world issues that tend to be chronic or that require an engineering analysis. Utilize the fundamentals of chemical engineering to develop technically correct working hypotheses that are key to successful problem solving.

  • Gives you a systematic, practical, five-step approach developed specifically to solve process engineering problems
  • Details a step-by-step method based on actual, in-plant experiences rather than on abstract theory
  • Presents chemical engineering fundamentals from the perspective of the problem solver
  • Shows you how to use these chemical engineering fundamentals as a basis for  developing technically correct working hypotheses
  • Includes real world example problems to illustrate the concepts, techniques, and calculations
