So im currently working in a design of a process. Energy/mass balances are done, unit ops are done, but I'm having trouble further detailing the process.
I want to size pipes and pipe length, materials, and location of equipment. How do I figure out how long the piping is from say, a heat exchanger to the reactor? How do I figure out where pumps/compressors are needed exactly? Which valve goes where? All those details just dont make sense to me yet.
Im mostly having truble with placement of equipment, and figuring out the configuration of auxiliary equipment.
