Capital cost of FIred Heater

Capital cost of FIred Heater

Capital cost of FIred Heater

I am in process to inhouse estimate capital cost of a fired heater. Can anyone support how to estimate?

RE: Capital cost of FIred Heater

- Walas&Couper's "Chemical Process Equipment. Selection and Design" para. 21
- Couper's "Process Engineering Economics" para. 4
- Brown's "Engineering Economics and Economic Design for Process Engineers" para. 3
- Peters&Timmerhaus's "Plant Design and Economics for Chemical Engineers" para. 6
- Seider's "Product and Process Design Principles" para. 16
- Towler&Sinnott's "Chemical Engineering Design" para. 7

RE: Capital cost of FIred Heater

Thank a lot for your response. I need to understand the basis for estimation and I dont have access to these books. It would be helpful if you can share that. Thanks again.

Sharing this kind of is a violation of intellectual property and is prohibited by codes&ethics of this forum. You have requested in a wrong place, try to google appropriate one.
Anyway all sources mentioned above are worth spending a hundred of USD and a couple of evenings even you are an intern living in a developing country.

A basis of the estimation is a correlation of purchase price and technical parameters of equipment in a developed industrial region, usually US Gulf coast.

Also you can use Aspen Capital Cost Estimator (former ICARUS) or relevant software from their competitors.
