#1260 - Introduction to Pinch Analysis

Course Objective

This course is designed to present the main principles of pinch analysis and to inform delegates about the scope, potential, and limitations of this important methodology.

Pinch analysis is a powerful tool for improving the design of industrial processes, based on a simple and elegant application of basic thermodynamics.  Its main use is in improving energy efficiency through heat integration for continuous plant operations, but it also has applications in distillation system design, debottlenecking, mass transfer, waste minimization, and other areas.

Course participants will learn how to:

Who Should Attend

The course is aimed at energy managers and engineers involved in plant operation, troubleshooting, and process design in the process industries, including oil refining, chemicals and petrochemicals, pulp and paper, and food and beverages.
