About the Course

This fast-paced, hard-hitting audio lecture provides a run down on all the essential topics of chemical engineering for the research chemist who wishes to push his or her bench-top innovation into industrial proportions.

This audio lecture encapsulates the material in the full-fledged course. Get an overview of the various topics of engineering that will help to bring your brainchild to fruition!

  • Reactor design
  • Separation of materials
  • Transport phenomena – heat mass and momentum transfer
  • Thermodynamics
  • Scale-up technology
  • Cost estimation techniques
  • Control engineering configuration
  • Engineering design practices

What You Will Learn

  • How to apply chemical engineering knowledge to further your bench-grade process: design a pilot, and participate in the design of a full-scale layout
  • Important chemical engineering principles (e.g., thermodynamics, material balance, reactor design, separation processes, heat exchangers, scale-up techniques, pilot design, and simulation)
  • How to appraise the feasibility of a newly-formulated chemical process, estimate the cost of design, and construct a pilot level and full-scale facility for your newly-invented or modified chemical process
  • How to negotiate with chemical engineers, oversee their design, and get the maximum benefit from their services

Who Should Attend

Scientific professionals who wish to scale-up their bench process, build a pilot, and participate in designing a full-scale production line.

Those who need to negotiate and interact with chemical engineers and who need to appraise the industrial feasibility of their newly-conceived chemical process.
