The course is a tightly-packed review of basic principles and practical aspects of fluid movers: pumps; fans; compressors; mixers and agitators; and heat exchangers supported by an initial refresher on fluid flow and piping systems.


 
Course Outline

Fluid flow, mixing and heat exchange are both common and critical to most process plants. Successful operation of the equipment depends on a number of important actions being properly addressed. The course will introduce new concepts and approaches through actual case studies, which will enable you to successfully implement new ideas.  The focus is on methods for hands-on analysis and design. 

Objectives
Refresh and round-out the participants’ knowledge in the areas of fluid handling and heat exchange
Highlight significant new developments
Provide direct quantitative methods for design and analysis

Who Should Attend
Process design engineers, practicing chemical engineers, project managers/engineers, scale-up engineers, research and development scientists/engineers and other individuals who carry out design or operation of chemical processes and technicians and technologists in laboratories will find the material useful.

The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
