This experience has been gained across a wide range of industry sectors including steel, refining and storage, pharmaceuticals, fine and speciality chemicals, food and plant utilities.

P & I Design have published a series of engineering practice books and articles which provide an extensive source of information based on many years of experience and to support our training activities.


We are pleased to announce the First Edition of our well received technical book on Process Simulation Refinery Processes.

The book is available, in hard copy bound format for GBP35.00 plus delivery charges.

Process Simulation Refinery Processes First Edition

By John E Edwards

The process industry covers a broad spectrum of activities that involve the handling and treatment of gases, liquids and solids over a wide range of physical and processing conditions. This manual provides a comprehensive review of the fundamentals, definitions and engineering principles for the study of processes encountered in hydrocarbon processing using steady state simulation techniques. Applications are presented for a wide range of processing units involving design and operations.

Process simulations are carried out using CHEMCAD™ software by Chemstations, Inc. of Houston. This manual has been developed with the full support of Chemstations simulation engineers based in Houston.

The simulation of crude distillation at atmospheric pressure, vacuum distillation and sour gas amine treatment is covered in Section 13 Process Measurement and Control of the book “Chemical Engineering in Practice” by J.E.Edwards. This manual includes these topics and extends the study to other refinery processes including splitters, stabilizers, hydrotreaters and reformers.

Thermodynamics are reviewed with special reference to the application of pseudocomponent curves and crude oil databases
