Kolmetz.Com has developed Engineering Design Guidelines, excel spreadsheets, and software to assist engineers, operations and maintenance personnel in designing many of the equipment types in plant unit operations.
The industry design guidelines are typically a collection of multiple industry references which need to be reviewed by an operations personnel or design engineer when designing or specifying a piece of equipment such as a control valve, relief valve or heat exchanger.
To help simplify this process, we have reviewed the industry references and have developed guidelines for engineers to do Preliminary Designs and Process Specification Sheets. The final design must always be guaranteed for the service selected by the manufacturing vendor, but these guidelines will greatly reduce the amount of up front engineering hours that are required to develop the final design. The guidelines are a training tool for young engineers or a resource for engineers with experience.
There are some very low cost guidelines and programs, sometimes even free, provided by the equipment vendors. Let the buyer beware, many times these guidelines and programs tend to pick their brand as the best choice - good for the vendor, maybe not so good for the buyer.
Engineering Design Guidelines Products
1. Written Guideline of Design Basis
2. Excel Based Spreadsheet based on Written Guideline Content
The Excel Spread Sheets are based on the written guideline contents. They also include the designed equipment examples in the written content. There is one spread sheet with multiple work sheets tabs for the examples.
3. Application Program Based on Written Guideline Content
