WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Design of a chemical process usually starts with a block flow diagram.
Additional information is required to build a process flow diagram from a block flow diagram.
There is a logical order to the synthesis of a chemical process from its component sections.
The evolutionary procedure to create a full process flow diagram (PFD) (as presented in Chapter 1) from the generic block flow process diagram (GBFD) (Chapter 2) is described in this chapter. This full PFD truly defines the process in a chemical engineering sense and is the starting point for chemical and other engineers to design the machines, structures, and electrical/electronic components needed to make the ...
