Webinar: Process Drawings

Webinar: Process Drawings
  • Date From 6th October 2020
  • Date To 6th October 2020
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 08:30 BST. Duration: 1.5 hours.


Chemical/process engineers produce many drawings during the early stages of a plants design and construction. The extent, interrelationships and functions of these drawings however is usually not obvious to students and young graduates working in isolated situations.

This webinar covers an overview of the function, content, timing and use of block flow diagrams, process flow diagrams, process and instrumentation diagrams and equipment sketches for specification and procurement. It also outlines the use of these drawings by other professions and for the multiple safety assessments typically undertaken during the early stages of design/construction.

The primary audience will be students and young graduates - particularly those working in situations where there are very few (or no) experienced chemical engineers. Additionally mechanical, civil, control and instrumentation engineers will understand the interrelationships between their professions and chemical engineering. Project managers will gain an insight into the range of deliverables and their function, particularly process safety.


Earl Hutchinson, Chairman of IChemE's Midlands Member Group

Over 40 years of experience in chemical engineering, most of which has been in the design and construction of chemical plant. During this time I have been assigned many student/young graduate engineers who were unaware of the complexity of the design process.

I have been lead engineer on multiple design projects; fine chemicals, bulk fiber, pharmaceutical and nuclear with a range of companies and job titles and I've no wish to bore you with more trivia.


08:30—10:00 BST.
