Chemical and Process Engineering

Chemical engineering is one of so many different branched of engineering which applies physical sciences (such as chemistry and physics), life sciences (biochemistry and microbiology), economics and applied mathematics to transform, produce, transport and use chemicals, materials, and energy in a proper way.

The process of chemical engineering involves managing different plant conditions and processes to ensure the optimal plant operation. Chemical reaction engineers can construct the needed models to use for the reactor analysis as well as the reactor design by using the available laboratory data and other physical parameters. They solve the chemistry-related problems and they can usually predict any reactor’s performance.

Chemical engineers use their knowledge in both chemistry and engineering for turning the raw materials into some usable products. Any chemical engineer can design some large-scale process, converting raw materials, chemicals, living cells, energy and microorganisms into some useful products and forms, being involved in many aspects of plant operations and design, including safety and hazard assessments, process analysis and design, chemical reaction engineering, control engineering, operating instructions and construction specification.

Being involved in the industry where they are expected to design and perform multiple experiments in order to create better as well as safer methods for pollution control, resource conservation and production, chemical engineers may be involved in constructing and designing plants as if they were project engineers. Thus, serving as project engineers, chemical engineers can use their knowledge while selecting the plant equipment and the most optimal production methods for minimizing costs and maximizing profitability and safety.

Extending the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software with process flow diagram symbols, samples, process diagrams templates and libraries of design elements for creating process and instrumentation diagrams, block flow diagrams (BFD), process flow diagrams (PFD), and piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) for chemical and process engineering, the Chemical and Process Engineering solution can be used by both chemical and project engineers, as well as the chemists for creating the needed drawings.


There are 8 libraries containing 468 process flow diagram symbols from chemical engineering.
