Process engineering is a discipline of engineering that focuses on a variety of different types of processes. This includes the design, operation, control, optimization, and intensification of physical, chemical, and biological processes.
Process engineering covers a wide range of different industries but is most prominently found in petrochemical, chemical, mineral processing, agricultural, advanced material, pharmaceutical, food, software development, biotechnical, automotive, and nuclear industries. These processes are examined and undertaken using computer aided design processes in order to ensure their accuracy and reliability of information. At Cad Crowd, we provide you with the chance to work on your unique process engineering project with someone who is highly skilled in these industries and can take on the work load for you.
The process engineering field is about translating the different needs of the customers into the ability to be produced in a facility which will turn raw materials into components that can be used for any number of items. After that, these components will be moved to the next part of the supply chain, and that is usually where the engineering field transforms into packaging engineering. The design of the work in process engineering starts with a block diagram that will show the different raw materials as well as the unit operations that are desired. The design work will go to the process flow diagram where the flow of the materials, the transformations, the storage equipment, and the flow rates will then be specified. In this design, items such as the conveyors and the pipes will also be discussed. Material properties like density, flow rates, particle-size distribution, viscosity, temperatures, pressures, and the materials being used to pipe will be examined.
Following this, the process flow diagram will be used to begin the conception of piping and instrumentation diagrams. This includes things like the sizes of the piping and conveyor sizes, which will address the process controls, flow rates, and more. They are used as the pillar of design for putting together the system operation guide that will show the way that the design will operate as an entire system. A layout, also called a general arrangement, will be shown after this using an overhead view that is also called a plot plan. It will also show a side view or elevation. At the end of this process, the plans will be shown to customers or clients in order to get their feedback and make edits before finalization.
