Selection of Shell & Tube Heat Exchangers – TEMA Types, Comparisons & Usage Applications

6.4.1 TEMA Types TEMA standards cover the heavy-duty heat exchangers (TEMA R) as well as the lighter duty heat exchangers (TEMA C and TEMA B). Refineries typically use only the TEMA “R” heat exchangers due to the generally severe requirements of petroleum applications; however, more moderate process services may warrant consideration of TEMA B construction. Each TEMA heat exchanger consists of following... read more

Methodology of Pressure Settings on Storage Tanks & Tank PDS Preparation

Case Scenario: A fixed roof tank storing flammable material is having inert gas blanketing. The outlet of nitrogen blanket is taken to a LP flare system. Below is the sequence of pressure set point engineering (refer figure 7.37 below also): First, calculate the inbreathing and outbreathing flow rates based on API 2000. Next based on the flowrate of out-breathing to LP flare and... read more

How to Design Utilities – Liquid Fuels, Compressed Air/Dryers & Boilers

16.2.2 Liquid Fuel Introduction Fuel oil is a fraction obtained from petroleum distillation, either as a distillate or a residue.  Broadly speaking, fuel oil is any liquid petroleum product that is burned in a furnace or boiler for the generation of heat or used in an engine for the generation of power.  In this sense, heavy fuel oil (HFO) or diesel... read more

How to Select Project Types / Stages With Examples for a Process Engineer

 26.1 PROJECT STAGES: A process engineer should be aware of the various stages (table 26.1) that a project can undergo. It is not necessary for all projects to pass through each and every of below mentioned stages. However, it is important to understand significance of each. It is to be specifically noted that there is a purpose behind each stage of any project. Few... read more

Meet The Author


Author Mihir M. Patel is based in Mumbai, India. He is a Chemical Engineer(SME). Practicing chemical engineering over 34 years in process and process safety engineering. Additionally, he is a Project Management Professional (PMP®) from PMI, USA, which gives him a unique overall project perspective in addition to process perspective. He is also a TUV SUD certified Functional Safety Professional.

It started in July 2015 when he was in Qatar, Doha working in a consultancy. He believes it is a grace of God, his good fortune and inspiration that gave him strength to write this comprehensive book. His wife encouraged and supported him in all the way.

He wrote this book with a vision to aid all level of chemical engineers to carry out chemical process engineering in a very practical, efficient and simplified way. It took him nearly 2.5 years to perfect this handbook and launched in the beginning of 2018. Which is a composite compilation of all the key aspects of chemical engineering. Within less than 2 years, it has become popular globally, with readers being immensely benefited by it.
