Hi to all,

I am a young guy and just started working in a refinery. Recently, I face a big issue bothering me a lot. When I have some problems, I want to find relevant information. However, I don't know how or where I can find the information wanted.

Could you kindly give me some suggestions or recommend me some website or links?

Thank you very much

Google my dear;At least this much painstaking is not only due but 'almost obligatory' on to us as professionals of whatever discipline we belong,I believe.

Thank you.

But most information in Google is limited preview or snippet view. Especially some are really needed,

Anyway, I appreciate yr reply, my friend~!

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

Are you seriously asking u for e reference that will teach you chemical engineering from a power point presentation? or even a single book?

I went to the technical university for five years for my masters - and i think that i read more than one book - even though its a couple of years ago and the beer in the students union was very cold and fine!

If - on the other hand - you are serious about this then e.g. Campbell offers some general courses on process engineering.

I almost red-flagged this one.

Best regards

Morten

To Morten,

Let me ask you one question. When you face a problem in your work, what will you do?

You come back to your technical university for another five years? If yes, then it is fine by me.
But Thank you for your response.

What I am trying to do is to find solution for the issues I meet in my work on my own. In addition, I hope refining engineers can share information together to develop this field.

An interesting book as a guide to process troubleshooting is:

David Saletan's Creative Troubleshooting in the Chemical Process Industries, Chapman and Hall.

LIUZP308,

What is your educational background and what job are you doing?  The relevant bits of chemical engineering vary a lot, and as Morton says, we can't distil a masters degree into a short book or presentation.  Heat and mass transfer or thermodynamics, for example, get into some fairly heavy maths.

The link below is a reading list for people who have 1 year of scientific university education to prepare for starting a chem eng course.

To Matt,

Thank you for your response. My bachelor is Chemical engineering. Master is industrial risk management.

I just started working in a refinery as a refining engineer. Everything in the refinery is kind of new for me. I need to review the knowledge which I have learned in college. But obviously, the knowledge I learned before is not enough to support my work now. For example, when I try to design a distillation tower. I have to consider heat exchange, mass transfer, tray number, tower height, pumparound duty, reboiler duty, and how many side products I need to build. How to make the heat exchange more efficient, which size of feed pump I need.

Based on the above consideration, I hope some seasoned engineers can tell me where I can find answers when I meet any problem.

OK - then one book: Perry's chemical engineer - covers almost everything!

Best regards (and good luck winky smile

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

and thats chemical engineer's handbook - but close enough i guess. Its not a refinery book though - but covers almost every that you mentioned.

Best regards

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

For modelling existing refinery processes Gerald Kaes' book "Refinery Process Modeling, A Practical Guide to Steady State Modeling of Petroleum Processes" is good.  I find Nelson out of date.

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

1)Petroleum Refinery Engineering( by Nelson) Refining Mother Book in a way

2)Petroleum Processing Handbook by Bland& Davidson(Probably McGraw Hill published)

Hope these are considered related to Petroleum!

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

Another Early stage 'Chemical Engineering Calculation Principles' by D M Himmelblau probably correctly recalled

helps in trouble shooting calculation related problems.

Hope the above three titles may prove really helpful to your problem resolving effort!

Petroleum refining: technology and economics By James H. Gary, and the late and great Glenn E. Handwerk

RE: Ebook, PDF, PPT about chemical engineering

liuzp308:

There are over 175 chemical engineering articles in the online Citizendium encyclopedia listed at:

http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Category:Chemical_Engineering_Subgroup

For starters, you may find it useful to read these three:

http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Petroleum_refining_processes
http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Fluid_catalytic_cracking
http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/Gasoline

Your best source of information has to be experienced engineers at your facility.
