Consider Industrial Design Leaders Involvement in Specialized Workshops

362 views

Published on

Most chemical engineering bachelor programs integrate the expertise and guidance of experienced industrial design leaders (IDLs) through the Process Design Project course. This course becomes a fundamental opportunity for students to kick-start their career and allows IDLs to share their invaluable experience. This presentation highlights the 4 key principles used by IDLs to successfully develop these future engineers in a demanding but rewarding project.
An approach is proposed to involve IDLs in specialised workshops as learning accelerator sessions that would benefit students for their design project. Topics such as how to control a process, building P&IDs, modelling with simulation software, creating HAZOPs, health & safety, and project management could be covered and would elevate the students understanding and, in turn, the quality of their project deliverables. This will not only prepare them for their projects and careers, but it is also an opportunity to develop a strong community of IDLs around their university.

Consider Industrial Design Leaders Involvement in Specialized Workshops

  1. 1. CONSIDER INDUSTRIAL DESIGN LEADERS INVOLVEMENT IN SPECIALIZED WORKSHOPS Sergio Joao, eng. Steven Sidthiphol, jr. eng. SUCCESSFUL INVOLVEMENT IN DESIGN COURSES 66th Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference October 17th, 2016
  2. 2. AGENDA • Context • Key factors for successful design projects • Benefits – Students – Industrial Design Leader • Design course – Looking Forward 2
  3. 3. INVOLVEMENT IN DESIGN COURSES • McGill & Polytechnique - since 2013 • Team achieved great success • High quality reports and presentations • Not only technical… 3Context Key Factors Benefits Forward

  10. 10. Industry Control Narratives It is important to control the liquid level inside the column to ensure that adequate mass transfer takes place between the vapor and liquid phases, and to prevent flooding. This is accomplished by using a feedback control system in loop 204 that regulates the flow of rich amine leaving the bottom of the absorber (stream 12). Excessively high and low liquid levels pose an operational risk, and as such are insured by interlock action. I-3 trips the motor on pumps P- 201 at the bottom of the absorber if the liquid level is excessively low, which terminates the outflow of liquid. Conversely, the amine inflow (stream 10) is terminated by I- 4 using a shutoff valve if the liquid level becomes very high. Source: Nathan Goldstein, Anand Natu, Chantelyn Pineda and K.
