Chapter 12. Synthesis of the PFD from the Generic BFD

What You Will Learn

• Design of a chemical process usually starts with a block flow diagram.

• Additional information is required to build a process flow diagram from a block flow diagram.

• There is a logical order to the synthesis of a chemical process from its component sections.

The evolutionary procedure to create a full PFD (as presented in Chapter 1) from the generic block flow process diagram (GBFD) (Chapter 2) is described in this chapter. This full PFD truly defines the process in a chemical engineering sense and is the starting point for chemical and other engineers to design the machines, structures, and electrical/electronic components needed to make the chemical engineer’s ...
