      • Bloc diagrams - Main zones.
      • Composition of inlet & outlet streams.

      • For each one:
      • Reaction zone characteristics: principle, chemical reaction, need of a catalyst or not.
      • Main control loops of the reaction zone.
      • Daily operating conditions.
      • Responses on disturbances.
      • Recovery zone characteristics: principle of separation processes, implementation.
      • Main control loops of equipment:
      • Daily operating conditions.
      • Responses on disturbances.

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
  • explain the main operating conditions and trends,
  • precise the physical & chemical principle associated with the main steps of the processes.

Ways & Means

  • Notions illustrated thanks to examples taken from your unit itself.
  • Search of active participation of the trainees implementing case studies.
  • As a matter of fact, data from the unit have to be provided to fit the client unit conditions.
